What? The Gun-Free Sign Didn’t Work?

What? The Gun-Free Sign Didn’t Work?

North Carolina Central University is a gun-free zone. There are signs posted around the campus stating it as such.

On Tuesday, Durham, N.C., police were looking for a man who burglarized a home and later committed an armed robbery. They found a suspect who exchanged gunfire with officers and then ran onto the NCCU campus, right past a sign announcing the area was gun-free.

Curiously, the suspect didn’t put down his weapons in response to the sign. Instead, he ran into a wooded area, where he was cornered and then killed in a shootout with police.

Campus officials are considering charging the sign with dereliction of duty and other forms of malfeasance. They are also considering bigger signs and other measures.

Meanwhile, the campus was on lockdown during the ordeal, with students left cowering in their dorm rooms, unarmed and unable to defend themselves. According to the student handbook, “The possession of firearms (including BB guns), ammunition, bows and arrows, knives, razors and other dangerous weapons is not permitted in the residence halls or throughout the campus.”

No word on whether the armed police officers will be charged for violating school policy.
