A longtime College of Southern Nevada sociology professor is facing felony gun charges in connection with an on-campus shooting on the second day of classes.
Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.
It gets much better:
One college employee told police that he held Bird’s hand to calm him down as others tried to stop the bleeding. While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report. The report did not elaborate.
I know you already are thinking about other places this idiot could have placed the muzzle of the gun in order to make a long-lasting impression. But allow me to give you a sobering thought: If they are willing to shoot themselves for small-minded political crap, do you think they will have any compunction shooting you or your loved ones just because you are in the wrong side?
Is no longer a question of “IF” but “When.” And unfortunately, I think it will be sooner than later that we may have to react.
