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.
Another number to add to the “school shootings” statistic.
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.
So many questions… why the gun? Is gun violence related to the “protest” somehow? Or is it just Trump? Did he vote during the previous election cycle? Did he think this “protest” would change anyone’s mind about anything?
