With one victim shot, a group of four police officers in bulletproof vests, helmets and eye protection made their way through the fifth floor of Tyler Residence Hall on East Carolina University’s campus on Thursday looking for the suspect.

Gunfire rang out, a second victim was shot, and police identified a second suspect as they continued the search for the first gunman.


After a few tense minutes, police found both shooters and neutralized them as threats.

Good Post

But expect the communists to rant that you are pro-gun and have NRA blood on your hands. When that happens, ignore them. They're fools and crybabies.

Guns

“If the only people who have guns are us and the bad guys, it makes it easier for us to respond.”
 Well yeah... I guess it does. It also makes it easier for the guy going on a rampage. It sure makes his job easier when he knows he can shoot at anyone in the area with no fear of them shooting back until police arrive. At that point he still only has to worry about the clearly marked guys...
