Didn't CA just pass stricter laws and a gun ban on college campuses?

Early reports I'm seeing are 2-4 injured. Really sparse details right now.

Clearly a false story. Guns are not allowed on college campuses in Kalifornia.

I just got a blurb that there were two dead.....How can that be if there are no guns allowed?

Gun free zones do work! Not that is true, but tell that the CA Governor.

CBS News reports that a police source says shooting appears to be a murder/suicide.

And they are going to get them. I bet they pass more laws mandating that you can only have 1 round per month. After you use that round the next month you will have to travel to the state capital and submit to a DNA test and a colonoscopy in order to get your replacement round for the next month. It will probably cost 200 bucks as well as insurance required to travel with dangerous substances!

There a reason that Kalifornia is known as the land of 'Fruits and Nuts'.

So I saw the new reports on TV of the Shooting last night. Near as I can tell it was a murder/suicide that was confined to a professor's office. I believe there was even a note. I wonder if the professor who was killed at some point regretted the fact he could not have a gun with him, especially if this student had previously shown, the he/she was somewhat unstable.

There were scenes shown of how students went on lock down. Many examples were shown of classroom doors being locked from the inside with belts, furniture piled up against doors. After all these years, California has no money to put thumb turn dead bolt locks on classroom doors?

But from the looks of the film footage at the scene it was like some kind of war zone. I saw at least 100 or more armed swat officers, armored vehicles, and lots and lots of students on their knees with their hands in the air being frisked, students being led in lines with their hands in the air etc. Lots of rifles pointed at students. For as much as I practice making sure my muzzle is always pointed down, it was very scary just watching it. I assume it was very frightening for the students being treated like armed suspects. Very fortunate none of the students made sudden moves or reached to pull up their sagging pants. The swat officers are to be complemented for no other fatalities that day.

There was some talk of a citywide alert and at least three schools outside of the college campus being on lock down.

Almost all the police presence shown was in military styled clothing, I saw few officers in blue. I would assume it takes some time to get a group of police swat officers like this assembled and moved to a university. (an hour?)

Wouldn't a simple investigation of the professor's office by the local campus police have determined it was a murder/suicide before all these forces were assembled. Or, did someone higher up decide, hey this is a good excuse for a live drill.

For a part of the world that dislikes guns, police and the military, it seems California really likes to put on an good authoritarian show of force for the media.
