The fatal shooting of a professor at Delta State University today might have happened on campus, but it doesn’t quite match what we usually consider as a “school shooting” with mass casualties seemingly picked at random. This really does look like “workplace violence,” with one faculty member targeted by another in his office.
Nonetheless, it was a terrifying situation for students and more fodder for those who demand some sort of comprehensive gun control passed immediately.
Steven Crowder points out that Delta State is a member of the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus, founded in the wake of shootings at school shootings at Virginia Tech in 2007 and Northern Illinois University in 2008.
The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus, which doesn’t seem to have prevented any gun crimes, retweeted a tweet about the shooting.
