Apparently, though, this entire news story is completely fictional and made up. Mr. Wilcoxson is a convicted felon, and has been in and out of the system his entire life. He was recently released from an OK prison after serving 3.5 years of a 7 year sentence for armed robbery, escape from jail, and other felonies. He had previously escaped from incarceration so many times that the locals consider his name to be synonymous with escaping...
Fifteen to 20 shots were fired by Wilcoxson from his "stolen" vehicle, using a semiautomatic AK-47 style rifle during the pursuit, but no shots were fired while he was on the college campus.
He led police on a high-speed chase, that started when he tried to enter Ft. Leonard Hood by storming their entrance gate with his vehicle.
He was apprehended by Missouri State Police, and no injuries (other than to Wilcoxson) were reported.
We (the rational, knowledgeable members of OCDO) can easily determine that this news story is completely fictional and made up because:
1) this guy was a convicted felon, so there is NO WAY he could legally possess a firearm,
2) it is specifically against Missouri statute to fire a rifle from a moving vehicle,
3) it is against Federal law to take such a firearm onto a military base without permission from the base commander,
4) it is against Missouri statute to possess a firearm on college or university property.
So there is simply NO WAY this story is true, because everyone knows that state, federal, and local "gun control" laws are effective, and keep criminals from doing all these "prohibited" things with guns.
Uh, yeah, right...
It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
