not a bullet, won't someone please think of the children
Fortunately no one was hurt. Those .45 bullets are used only to kill people. There is no other reason one would own one of these dangerous assault bullets.
holy shit what can we do about this ghastly problem?
what relevance does that have to the story OTHER than scare tactics?
Dude, no one has ever hunted with a .45-70 before.
handguns are assault weapons now

You got me. I made a mistake. I asked (what I thought was) a reliable source, and they said a 45-caliber bullet was used in assault weapons like handguns. My bad. I'm sorry for the confusion it has caused. I should have researched more. I'm sorry.
As for trying to create panic, a campus wide alert was sent out by the administration (as I stated in the article) before the Wire came out with the story. I was merely doing follow up.
Wheaton's a small school (1500 total) so this is a big story, regardless of whether it should be.
I never insinuated that I am anti-gun.
Anything else that needs clarifying please ask. As for blatant insults just for the sake of insulting me or my gender, they are not appreciated nor constructive and will be deleted.
Do students write that shit?
God you guys need to be on the ball better
writing as "her" and being rash would have sparked 200 more resposnes
Hmm, anyone want to go spread a box of 50 around? OH THE HUMANITY!!!!
better yet get some spent cartridges at the range and leave them laying about.
probably someone went to the range and left a bullet in their pocket, i do it all the time. By the time the dogs were coming around everyone had gotten their panties so badly twisted that he didn't want to admit anything.
Hope we're all getting ready for assault muzzleloaders.
