At approximately 5 PM on Wednesday, students and faculty at St. Louis University were ordered to shelter in place amid claims of an armed man on campus and reports of gunfire outside Marchetti Tower East, a dorm a few blocks away.
What had triggered such hysteria and pumped fear into the hearts and minds of thousands of people?
A student walking to class with his assignment: a rubber band gun.
The toy gun was one built by a student in the aerospace and mechanical “engineering manufacturing procedures” class, a news release said. Students were asked to build a working device with interchangeable parts and chose toy rubber band guns out of several options.
The students were warned not to display the guns outside of class but the student police questioned had built a “very realistic” toy gun and openly carried it into Spring Hall, a campus dorm.

Yesterday was “May the Fourth” day, otherwise known as “Star Wars Day”, and one exuberant student in Ashwaubenon, WI thought he’d attend classes at his Green Bay area high school in style: dressed up as a Star Wars character.
But as innocent as his intentions were, his actions had a much different, much darker reaction.
Ashwaubenon Public Safety said the parent of another student became concerned after seeing the high schooler dressed as a Star Wars character and alerted authorities, reporting a student wearing a “ballistic-type vest” carrying a backpack and bag into the school.
The school was evacuated and Brown County Sheriffs’ Department assisted Ashwaubenon Public Safety in sweeping the building, finding no credible threat – only one scared kid in a Star Wars mask.
Yep! This is the climate the Cult of Gun Control has helped create
