Oh, hey, cool, the Panera I used to go to all the time with my friend:

PRINCETON - Normally busy Nassau Street came to a halt Tuesday morning as a man with a gun was holed up in Panera Bread across from Princeton University.

Princeton police cars and a Princeton Public Works garbage truck blocked off the roadway.

Pedestrians were kept about 200 feet away from the Panera on Nassau Street between Washington and Witherspoon.

Mercer County SWAT team and the West Windsor Police Department are on the scene.

There were conflicting reports of shots being fired, but it looks like that wasn't the case. An old classmate from grad school is teaching there now and had to stay in her office just in case, but there's technically not a shelter in place order.

Still going on. According to this guy, they've gotten everyone except the gunman out:

Quote
Speaking with Newsweek, Hemmert says that, while he received a flood of praise for his decision, that he and his daughter are now on the receiving end of "deeply disturbing" death and rape threats.

"I hope someone breaks into your house and rapes your daughter," wrote one Facebook user according to screenshots provided to Newsweek by Hemmert. "While she is being raped I hope she looks up and says, daddy where's the gun we built? Where!!!!"

According to the veteran, he has also received threats from 2nd Amendment supporters who say they are going to shoot his dog and that someone has been harassing his girlfriend by calling her cellphone.

"There has been a substantial negative and very ugly response," Hemmert elaborated. "The thing that I have learned over the past three days is that there are a lot of unhinged people who own AR-15s, and I am convinced now more than ever that those people really should not be trusted with anything more dangerous than a butter knife."

Gun nuts enthusiasts are about as nutty enthusiastic as they come.

Looks like the people going crazy about their guns being taken off them are the ones that should have their guns taken off them - seems like a good way to identify who that should be - if you posted a rape/violence threat on line - no guns for you

The battle over firearms has officially entered the digital realm. YouTube announced that it will place more restrictions on firearms videos hosted on its website, and the move has angered some gun enthusiasts who are now publishing their content on a large porn site.

This makes way more sense because. I mean now after having a constant boner for hours watching gun porn you don't even have to switch to a different site in order to find real porn for the finisher.

For all the jadedness, and justifiable reservations about Old White Liberals' Token Measures to Feel Good About Themselves...
I'm going to the March for Our Lives in D.C. tomorrow.

Chaz Rainey, the attorney representing Wilson, said that he plans to appeal the decision. "We live in a world where having a medical marijuana card is enough to say you don't get a gun, but if you're on the no fly list your constitutional right is still protected," he told the AP. He argued that there should be more consistency in how the Second Amendment is applied.

Jaelynn Willey was shot in the head in a hallway just before classes began about 7:55 a.m. at Great Mills High School, according to the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office and the girl's family. The sheriff's office said in a brief statement that she died at 11:34 p.m. Thursday.

She had been targeted by Austin Wyatt Rollins, 17, after the couple recently ended their relationship, according to previous statements from the sheriff's office. On Thursday, her family said at a brief news conference that she was brain dead and would be taken off life support.

Cops referred to the murderer as a "lovesick" teenager.

And then there's this garbage:
Quote
Friends and neighbors described him as a friendly, happy teenager who liked to play ball, skateboard and hang out with friends.

Newell Rand, a Great Mills graduate who knew Rollins, said he never expected the burst of violence.

"He was a very intelligent guy who had so much going for him," Rand said in a message on social media.

If this guy had been found guilty of torturing and killing dogs, do you all think the neighbors would say the same thing and that reporters would be publishing all of these "was so promising" and "had so much going for him" comments?

On tacticool and gun obsession:
https://waypoint.vice.com/en_us/article/3kjqkw/a-closer-look-at-our-dark-obsession-with-guns-looking-cool

Quote
How did we get here? Tacticool is the byproduct of a long evolution in gun design. From the first arquebus to the latest infantry firearm, every gun has held a fundamental purpose in common. Yet there is something distinct about the modern gun, especially the family of weapons based around the AR-15. These guns are, at their core, still weapons, but they are also personalized keepsakes, upgrade-ready and customized to their owner's delight. The story of how personal rifles went from mass produced uniform products to highly customizable templates for aftermarket accessories is so compelling, we're going to tell it twice: once with physical weapons in the tangible world, and again with virtual weapons as seen in games.

Quote
In general, "tacticool" describes stylistic choices in weapon modification that are at best irrelevant to the function of the gun, and at times compromise functionality in the name of giving the gun a more aesthetically pleasing appearance (even if it means shoulder protection be damned). The mainstreaming of rail-accessories from special addition for combat to hobbyist novelty is perhaps best reflected in the "tacticool" section at nerd-centric online retailer ThinkGeek, where you can find a tactical laser pointer styled after the ridges of a picatinny rail.

Which is how we get to the present day, when rails originally designed so that special operators didn't have to duct-tape flashlights to their weapons are now such a commonplace way for gun owners to show off their personalized tool that there are at least two different companies selling rail-mounted testicles.
