Regardless, were the two in the classroom he shot up? How many students at this college even have a clue that they could legally defend themselves there? How many there haven't been brainwashed to the point of believing that guns, not people, are the the perpetrator?
Really, than please explain why an armed forces member went to his vehicle to collect his weapon and was stopped on his way back in by staff who then confiscated his weapon?
Totally IS a gun free zone.
Apparently you're stupid.

Yeah, not a gun-free zone actually. Shocker that you didn’t do your own resarch and just choose to parrot the NRA’s talking points which are misleading you purposely.
Laws aside... It’s gun free if no one is carrying them on their person.
Here's some research that proves you wrong.
BS You must have missed the idiot that runs that college saying the school will remain a killing field ie "gun free zone".

Perhaps you should practice what you preach and research more than headlines. "My Two Cents" replied below and above with a link proving your knowledge on the subject is very shallow.
From Umpqua Community College: “Possession, use, or threatened use of firearms (including but not limited to BB guns, air guns, water pistols, and paint guns) ammunition, explosives, dangerous chemicals, or any other objects as weapons on college property, except as expressly authorized by law or college regulations, is prohibited."
"Possession of knives with a blade longer than 4” is prohibited."
"Brandishing weapons is prohibited."
"Misuse of personal defensive weapons – e.g., pepper spray, etc. is prohibited. The owner is responsible and accountable for any misuse of these devices.”

Sorry to interject your circle jerk with facts, but UCC is not a gun-free zone. This is because by Oregon law, a public university can not ban weapons. In fact, there were 2 ex-military guys on the campus.
Please commence with your circle jerk, ignoring the actual laws and facts that surround the situation
You are distorting the truth and cherry picking facts.

Abortion is a legal medical procedure in the USA. Read the constitution, then kindly **** off.
The Constitution makes no mention of the word "abortion" nor any real provisions about medical procedures. It is only a legal precedent that has placed medical care decisions under the amendments guaranteeing rights to privacy. I actually agree with this decision. My medical care is none of the government's business and should stay that way.
However, this only removes the government's ability to regulate abortion for so long as the unborn child is not considered a person. Once the child is considered a person, the child's right to not be murdered trumps the mother's desire to not be inconvenienced for nine months, just as your right to not be murdered trumps my desire to not listen to idiots babble about things they aren't capable of rationally considering.
A child is a human from the moment of conception. It is therefore murder to abort a child. The mother's right to privacy should have no bearing upon this situation.
Your statement is irrelevant. No one is saying that abortion is not legal. You seem to be confusing the concept of legality with the concept of morality. We all know that abortion is legal, just as slavery was. There is no need to keep mentioning it.
But, abortion is IMMORAL, regardless of its legal status. Because it is immoral, it should also be illegal. Hence the debate. If you have rational thoughts on why it might NOT be immoral, please share them. (Key words: "rational thoughts".)
kindly eff off? That was necessary? Sure, abortion is a legal practice, I don't know if "medical" is really the correct word as it's not good for the mother and lethal for the baby. I'm always puzzled how somebody could actually be a cheerleader for abortion. It's almost as if abortion makes them happy or something. Even if I agree with a need for access to legal abortion as a means of preventing a dangerous black market I still know it's the worst possible thing any woman could do to herself and it's taking a valuable life out of this world simply because someone else deems it inconvenient. But I guess you're all for it since it doesn't personally affect you anyway, what a complete slob!
Typical liberal obfuscation! It's not in the constitution but since you have no real justification for this heinous act, you boldly claim it is in hopes of convincing the uninformed.
Just like saying it's the woman's body when in fact it's the helpless baby's body that is being cruelly mutilated.
For the 56437859834th time......
legal does not equal moral.
WHICH sentence says it is okay to slaughter babies before they are born ... PLEASE, give me a reference, so I can look that one up !!! the constitution was written by men who didn't know that babies could be physically aborted because their wives didn't want their children ... I need to be able to justify YOUR COMMENT on the constitution in order to understand what you wrote !! WHERE IN THE CONSTITUTION does it say to SLAUGHTER BABIES ?!?!? you poor damned fool, and I mean that from a Biblical standpoint !!! PLEASE ... just show me I am wrong with FACTS, then maybe I'll **** off !!! In the meantime, just go abort yourself, will you ????? you are taking fresh air away from people who deserve it !
abortion is not part of the constitution, and whether it is "legal" or not, it is still murder.
 October 1, 2015 at 4:22pm
Didn’t read the article and don’t need to- abortion is legal in this country per the supremee court. You don’t like it, tough ****- that’s how the constitution works. Tell your family and friends not to get an abortion. Talk about it, do what you gotta dod.But it is a legal medical procedure in this country and that’s not going to change.
Amazing. It is clear that abortion intentionally kills an innocent, unique, defenseless, individual human being. And your final argument in favor of it is "Seven men said we could do this"?
Yet you are also probably AGAINST the 2nd amendment and do everything you can to create obstacles to prevent people from exercising that right. Funny how when it's something you like you cite the constitution, but when it isn't you forget all about the constitution. Typical liberal mindset.
A lethal injection is a legal medical procedure. Want one? Brain surgery, amputation, castration, burn debridement, and a whole long list of things are legal medical procedures but, you can not get a real doctor to perform one on you at request for any reason you create in your head. Why? The Hippocratic Oath they take to ”do no harm.” And, let’s see, frontal lobotomies were considered good medicine and standard treatment for many mental diseases and THAT CHANGED! Maggots were used, then considered no longer valid and we are back using them because they are so much better at cleaning wounds. I can give more examples but I think you get the point. What is accepted medical practice and legal now changes so get off that sacred cow of abortion before it dies and rots into the annuals of history like so many other things. And most OB/GYN doctors will not perform abortions on moral grounds.
Abortion leaves scars. Many women have physical and mental scars. My 62 year old boyfriend with a daughter and exwife still accepts his wife’s decision to have one but still is not over it and is on the spectrum in the middle. He believes it’s wrong but feels he can’t judge women who have them. And he talks about it a lot. Many states allow late term abortion on babies into the 9th month. 19 week gestational babies survive and grow up. Are they people or not? Do they only deserve rights if the mother grants them? It’s close to slavery and Nazis saying blacks and Jews aren’t deserving of rights.

No. Sadly, the NRA has bought our government and tricked the idiotic masses into thinking that regulation = gonna take er gunz. Don’t worry, no common sense will ever interfere with your ‘freedom’. Country is ******.
So, please explain what gun control measure not already on the books would have prevented this.
those so called idiotic masses you speak of would gladly take out an active shooter threat to save your tail while your peeing your pants and crying about gun control!
Nope If I owned a gun and was to carry a gun it would be to protect me and my family. I would be concentrating on my families safety. glennpatstu would be on his own. Once my family was absolutely guaranteed safe then if there was an opportunity without any risk to myself or family and I could do it to save someone in imminent danger I might pull a trigger to save them. I don’t need the time in court and related legal hassles related to shooting someone. I am no hero. To protect my family yes, to protect glennpatstu, no. Everyone needs to be responsible for their own safety.
Define a "common sense" regulation that is not already on the books.
Golly, almost 5 hours later and your list of laws that would have stopped this shooting still stands at 0....how weird.

Where are the gun-free zone assumptions coming from? This article makes no mention of it being a gun free zone.
according to this article, http://www.ammoland.com/2015/10/shooting-at-gun-free-umpqua-community-college-oregon/#axzz3nLjiEMyb they're a weapons free zone. However there is some question as to if they allow licensed concealed carry. Can't confirm the source (school website) at this time, it's probably getting hammered with visitors right now.
In general though, schools are gun free zones. According to http://www.armedcampuses.org/ oregon shools allow concealed carry, however the school can limit who carries and where they carry.
A little further digging found: http://www.oregonlive.com/education/index.ssf/2012/03/oregon_state_board_of_higher_e_7.html
So, pretty much weapons are banned inside any building.

I assume you feel the same way about Freddie Gray who was put into the back of a paddy wagon, unrestrained, which is illegal and which has been proven to cause injury and death.

Clarifying the difference between a theory in the traditional sense and the scientific sense is not a belief- they actually mean two different things. That was the point of this lesson. Of course to know that, you would have to actually read something (including the article above) so I wouldn’t expect that Blaze nation will ever catch on to this. Continue being outraged at things because you don’t take the time to understand them.
Theory has only the traditional sense, as far as I know. But now, the scientific method has been cheapened by manipulation and opinion stated as fact, that in the realm where "science" and "faith" meet, the "science" is modified to achieve the politically expedient result. Faith meaning AGW, evolution, creationism, and I'm sure some study will soon be coming along blaming us for earthquakes, meaning no more drilling.

No. That means that 60% of Americans are really, really, really stupid. Actually, I think the number is closer to 90% in reality.
Kathy- he does NOT know how to deal with people!!!! He knows how to insult, bully and belittle people on a personal level while avoiding actual issues- that’s what you want for your next president!? Lot’s of talk about Reagan last night- can’t imagine a person more un-Reagan like than Trump. Reagan was smart, eloquent, informed and demanded respect by having those qualities- not by being a loudmouth jerk which is all that TRump is.
September 17, 2015 at 3:19pm
^why does it have to about Obama? Just because we have one terribly uninformed and ineffective president, that somehow means we should have another? Just from the other party? Makes no sense- just like Trump’s campaign. I swear, this guy is a plant from his buddy Hillary’s campaign.
September 17, 2015 at 1:39pm
^Funny that he avoided that ‘resume enhancer’ by denying it, huh? Care to address the rest of my post where I stated the FACT that not only does he not know the issues, he admits to it. Ya know why? Because he knows that this country is full of idiots like you.
[-1] September 17, 2015 at 1:36pm
Yet, somehow Trump supporters don’t show blind ignorance by supporting a guy who admittedly doesn’t know the issues, but will ‘figure them out’ once elected? What exactly has Trump said so far?
Your comments are noted, but note this.
7 years AFTER Obama was elected and has been serving as POTUS, he still knows nothing about how to run a country, how to treat people, how to be honest, how to NOT lie, etc.
So if actually being qualified is a qualification, HTF did Obama get there?
Well, he knows how to deal with people and call things what they are. No one knows everything which is why you have others around to refer to. Don’t be naive, no president knows everything. One problem with BO is he doesnt use these people to make suggestions and glean information from. He’s so narcissistic he thinks he knows it all and is a one “man” show. He can sit on his lame executive orders! He’s above the law.

I feel that Trump will surround himself with the best and brightest and not a bunch of yes men and politicians
 September 17, 2015 at 12:32pm
And Trump’s performance at the debates have proven that he is incapable of any sort of discourse, period. How dumb are you people? He admitted that he doesn’t understand any of the issues, but you will still support him because he ‘tells it like it is’? He doesn’t tell it at all!!!!! What he does is launch personal attacks at people who are more qualified and smarter than him. And he is a liar- his business absolutely went bankrupt. 4 times.
Recovering from 4 bankruptcies is a resume enhancer for the job of POTUS. See national debt and unfunded liabilities and we are on the verge of the Fed raising interest rates.
^Funny that he avoided that 'resume enhancer' by denying it, huh? Care to address the rest of my post where I stated the FACT that not only does he not know the issues, he admits to it. Ya know why? Because he knows that this country is full of idiots like you.
He didn’t recover from his bankruptcies he just used them to not have to pay his debts when he could afford to. That is the beauty of being the sole owner of a corporation
Beck believes in a guy that put a rock into a white top hat and translated a Jewish Indian book written in Egyptian and you are calling Trump supporters dumb ?
