    No students or staff were hurt after shots were fired at Cascade Middle School in West Eugene, Oregon, on the morning of January 11. A post on the school’s website reads, “Cascade Middle School remains in lockdown. And the shooter was expected, and after shots fired, is deceased,

    Just in time for the next legislation, coincidence ? Appears 2019 is a big year for gun control, 2015 was as well and we had UCC here in Roseburg......

    Man fatally shot by Eugene police while being escorted out of Cascade Middle School

    Thats the FULL STORY from the OPB link I found after reading this.

    Police Fatally Shoot Man Being Escorted Out Of Cascade Middle School In Eugene, Oregon OPB's original article.

    Sounds like someone was at the school and caused a commotion when leaving, drew a gun and struggled with the cops escorting him out. Cops then shot the guy and placed the school under lock. Nobody but the guy was shot and they've declared this situation cleared.

    So while it wasn't an active shooter situation and no shots were fired in the school and no kids or staff were injured nor police. I don't think this one quite panned out for fuel for why we need the new bills that've been put up so far. Though I am sure there will still be a slew of THIS IS WHY WE NEED GUN CONTROL!

    Oddly enough right before our anti-gun legislation starts. Some of the biggest anti-gun years, have occurred same years as school shooting in our state.

    Oh when these happen I just think to myself, Ok whats the bill or legislation season we aren't seeing or hearing about until AFTER the damage has been done. Rinse repeat and always apply pressure to 2A advocates on yearly repeat.

    When do Gun owners become a civil rights protected class? I mean it IS in the CONSTITUTION and ruled by the SUPCO in DC vs Heller. Just wanting to hear a legit reason why we aren't under such protection. I get this may open a can of worms but this IS a site about safe/responsible/lawful gun use and its many legal aspects so why not?. Another big one. Why are we always on the reactionary. If I remember right most self defense classes teach you to be on the defensive and put your opponent on the reactionary. I can't fathom why after getting a SUPCO in our by ruling DC v Heller and all the money put into the NRA/GOA/OFF why is it there is never something put forth to say "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" at the State level?.

    I feel I am asking honest questions since how long has gun control been going on now (long before I was born or thought of). Just my 2 cents.

    Well we are a civil right group, but neither OFF or the NRA are smart enough to take that route.......why? I
    have no idea, as I always have looked at the second as a civil right.
    I better stock up on Rolaids and whiskey LOL its gonna be a rough year.

    The dead father must be the wrong race or religion as this story has already been pushed down on the news pages.

    My daughter goes to Willamette High, which is right next to Cascade Middle. She texted me, scared, saying they heard gunshots, and were in lockdown at the moment. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty freaked out, then immediately went on the premiere news source, " Facebook", and found that the situation was contained, which I immediately informed her of. Even though everything happened outside the school, and involved no teachers or students, it is still going to be added to the inflated school shooting stats now.

    Because it was a shooting that took place on school grounds, gun control supporters will still count it as a "school shooting" to inflate that statistic. Remember that when some gun controller claims "There have been xx school shootings already thus year!!!"
    Many so-called "school shootings" take place at night, on weekends, or during the summer and other times when there aren't even any students on campus.

    Statistic claiming there have been 18 school shootings in 2018 is misleading
    18 school shootings in 2018? That statistic is misleading
    Comparison of school shootings in US, world lacks support
    The School Shootings That Weren't
    No, there have not been 18 school shootings already this year

    This shows how inherently dishonest gun control advocates are.

    Yeah, I remember last year, they counted somebody committing suicide in the parking lot at night as a school shooting.

    I would think it EXACTLY fits the narrative. Aren’t crazed, extreme right wing, white males exactly who gun control laws are supposed to protect us from?

    What if the pistol fell out as the cops manhandled him out the door? He panics and goes to pick it up as the cops burn him to the ground like Jason Washington at PSU.
