    Gunman killed near NC campus after pursuit

    DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Police shot and killed an armed man who came onto North Carolina Central University's campus after he exchanged gunfire with officers, the public university said Tuesday.

    The man was tracked to the school by Durham police late Monday after he took a bus to leave the scene of an earlier police response, university officials said in a statement. Campus officials locked down the school's buildings between 10:15 p.m. Monday and about 1 a.m. Tuesday.

    Better to not open your mouth and be thought the fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

    They are so close to grasping the illogic of free citizens disarmed, and of the difference between a university and a prison. A mere sign declaring UNIVERSITY doesn't open minds closed by fear and ignorance.
    They fully understand...but it is more a matter of control and delusion than anything else.

    If something is wrong for ONE person to do to another, it is still wrong if a BILLION people do it.
