Two people were killed and a third person was wounded after a shooting Monday at a residence hall at a university in Texas, police said.

Students and employees were told to shelter in place as a precaution after the shooting Monday at Texas A&M University-Commerce. The university said there were three gunshot victims at its Pride Rock residence hall, and two people were confirmed dead.

The third person was taken to a hospital. Classes have been canceled for the day.

Commerce is about 65 miles northeast of Dallas.

      It’ll get blamed on us though.

        And JUST before the Iowa Caucus.

        How handy.

        1. avatar Southern Cross says:

          It is all about the timing. The momentum has to be kept rolling at just the right pace. Too many incidents and people will get suspicious. Too few and people will forget.

        2. avatar Joel says:

          Reports are saying two women dead and a toddler in critical condition and they aren’t looking for suspects. Most likely a (TRAGIC) murder suicide. I hope the child survives..

    In other *Breaking News*, Rush Limbaugh has announced he has stage 4 lung cancer.

    Watch how loud the Leftist scum will *Cheer* when hearing this…

    1. avatar former water walker says:

      Awww…with all the impeachment BS I haven’t seen or heard anything(or a Texas shooting). I occasionally listen to Rush in my car. I wish you well Rush!

      Even with half his brain tied behind his back El Rushbo should have known that.
      He has a new Contract though, so I don’t give a damn if they wheel him in on a gurney or down by a rope everyday, he had better do his show, I’ll be listening.

      Didn’t you have ‘die, ruthie, die’ as part of your name for a while?

      1. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

        Yes, I did have “Die, Ruthie Die” as a part of my nick, but I wasn’t the one claiming to be holy. Already the naked hate towards Limbaugh is starting, and it’s coming the ones who claim to be steeped in kindness and compassion towards others different than themselves.

        Oh, I sure am gonna have me some *fun* calling out the hypocrisy from those assholes… 🙂

        1. avatar Miner49er says:

          So what you’re saying, in the words of Rush Limbaugh, is that Rush Limbaugh is going to soon “assume room temperature”, right?

          That’s really too bad, he won’t be able to buy and sell Lortabs any longer, bummer. And I guess his doctor shopping is over now, sad.

          And he probably won’t be going on any more homosexual tour trips to Central America, carrying Viagra prescriptions in somebody else’s name.

          Maybe once he’s gone, character will matter again.

    4. avatar Hannibal says:

      I mean… it’s not like a lot of people on the right don’t cheer when people on the left are sick. I was a little disgusted by how many people I saw cheering when Jimmy Carter announced he had brain cancer.

      Just gotta ignore the ghouls, I guess.

  3. avatar De Facto says:

    Here we go again >.>
    I look forward to details but it’s going to be our fault no matter what.

  4. avatar Garrison Hall says:

    Gun free zones are death zones. People who want to kill others are attracted to gun-free zones like flies to honey because they know they won’t be opposed. The dirty secret of gun-control ideology is that it tacitly accepts the high body-counts that always happen in gun-free zones. Shooting people is a bloody minded business that can only be effectively opposed by other armed people who can defend themselves. The police ain’t coming.

    1. avatar jwtaylor says:

      State of Texas owned university residence halls are not gun fee zones.

      1. avatar DamnYankee says:

        Not today they arent. How quickly will that change in the increasingly liberal, New Cali?

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Not today they arent. How quickly will that change…”

          Likely the end of campus carry in Texas, then everywhere else; even if the shooter was not legally in possession of a gun.

          This episode will remove any concept of rational thinking.

        2. avatar jwtaylor says:

          Nothing will quickly change.
          The Texas legislature meets only for 140 days every other year. The next session will not be until January 2021 for laws that would go into effect in September 2021.

        3. avatar Remember the USS Liberty says:

          But it will change when the state turns blue from brown people flooding the state.

        4. avatar jwtaylor says:

          No, it won’t. First, brown people aren’t flooding the state. Immigration from south of the border is actually down in the last few years. Second, by the second generation, they vote just as Republican as everyone else, depending on their district. Next, history over the last several decades have shown that, as the Hispanic population has increased in Texas so has the free exercise of our 2nd Amendment rights. Finally, it’s predominantly white people from the coasts moving to Texas that are adding Democrat voters, not Hispanics. Turning Hispanics against Republicans, while white Democrats are poring in from the coasts, is political suicide.

    Another “Mass” shooting?

    1. avatar Asdf says:

      No. A mass shooting is 4 or more killed, including the shooter according to the FBI.

      1. avatar Southern Cross says:

        Downunder over the weekend we had a mass vehicular homicide. 7 children struck by a drunk driver. 4 dead and 3 injured. Already calls for absolute zero BAC for drivers, despite this being a biological impossibility.

      2. avatar gene says:

        That’s mass murder. https://www.rand.org/research/gun-policy/analysis/essays/mass-shootings.html There doesn’t seem to be a standard definition for mass shooting. Some include any injury, fatal or not, of 4 individuals. That means that during a shooting, 4 people can trip and get hurt due to the fall and it’d count as a mass shooting.

        Definitions can change to support whatever narrative is of interest. The trick is to give it an official sounding name that people can make presumptions on and run with it. Kind of like 25 year old “children”.

        1. avatar Ing says:

          Yes, there is a standard definition for a mass shooting — the FBI has used it consistently for well over 40 years. It’s filed under mass murder because that’s exactly what it is: mass murder (or an attempt at it) by a specific method.

  6. avatar Robb says:

    Dollars to donuts: jilted lover.

    1. avatar Phil Wilson says:

      Reasonable bet. Or someone’s criminal past following them to school. We’ll see.

    2. avatar jwtaylor says:

      Two women killed and one toddler injured.

  7. avatar Imayeti says:

    Googled it. FBI defines mass murder as 4 or more dead.

  8. avatar James Campbell says:

    The shooting victims and their families are in my prayers. This is a horrible thing for a family and community to endure.

  9. avatar RGP says:

    Isn’t this the second shooting for A&M Commerce in the space of a few months?

    1. avatar Gordon in MO says:

      The other shooting occurred at an entertainment facility outside of town. There may have been some Commerce students in attendance. No direct connection to the school.

  10. avatar Draugr says:

    Right on time. The Dems are about to loose on removing Trump, so there’s another shooting. Happens every time the Dems fall on their face.

    1. avatar Chief Censor says:

      Shootings are common in America. Mass shootings are increasing under Trump. This is normal now. Every month there is going to be a mass shooting and every week there will be a shooting somewhere.

      1. avatar Tim says:

        Fuck off, liar. Go back to MSNBC.

        1. avatar Chief Censor says:

          There has been a mass shooting on Greyhound bus. Six passengers shot with a 9mm handgun: 1 dead, 2 critical, 1 major, 1 moderate, 1 minor.

          The shooter was disarmed by passengers then thrown off the bus. He had multiple magazines. The man was arrested after the bus drove to a gas station for help.

          The bus has security cameras on board but so far no news on whether they captured the mass shooting.

      3. avatar Red in CO says:

        “Every week there will be a shooting somewhere” yeah it’s called Chicago

        1. avatar Sam Hill says:

          Or Atlanta, or La county.

        2. avatar Chief Censor says:

          That’s not even the murder capital of America. It’s the place most white males focus on to make the argument against gun control, but there are other states with less gun control and a higher murder rate. It’s kind of like gun control, or lack of it, doesn’t really change the behavior of society.

      4. avatar Ing says:

        “Every month there is going to be a mass shooting…”

        Only if you use the progressive propaganda definition of it, which means no, there aren’t going to be monthly mass murders, or even mass woundings, as you and the progbots would have us believe.

        1. avatar Chief Censor says:

          How many mass shooting happened in 2019? How many months are in a year?

  11. avatar Zeko says:

    I read that this was a freshman dorm . . . if this was a freshman, he/she is likely 18 or younger. Can one get a concealed carry license in Texas if under 21?

      1. avatar Phil says:

        There is an exemption for Military under age 21 but doubt it applies in this case.

  12. avatar Trump’s reign of terror says:

    Another tragedy on Trump’s watch.

    1. avatar Jon in CO says:

      I’m really, REALLY hoping this is just poorly written sarcasm. You know, because Trump is responsible for 300+million people’s actions.

      Assuming you’re being sincere, Obama let a kid go into Sandy Hook and shoot small children. He also allowed a racist white kid to go shoot black folks at a church. Terrible, just terrible fault of policies and politicians.

      1. avatar James Campbell says:

        Just ignore the TTAG trolls. Most are easy to spot, they pop in with new usernames, and usually blame Trump, racism, classism, wage/wealth gap, conservative values………….The list goes on.
        Most are just Soros/Bloomburg/Sanders/Demanding Mommies (with basement dwelling college grad toddlers) shills, upset over how the impeachment wound up in the Senate. Trump 2020!

          Not all of Bloomberg’s money goes into Super Bowl ads. 🤨

        2. avatar James Campbell says:

          True dat.

      2. avatar Anymouse says:

        There’s a legitimate connection between Obama and the MSDHS shooting. He instituted policies to encourage schools not to send high school troublemakers into the criminal justice system. Without a record, one with a history of threatening behavior was able to legally purchase a gun and shoot up his alma mater.

        1. avatar Sam Hill says:

          They Could alll literally be his sons.

    2. avatar Truth says:

      No trump is to blame.

      We were promised a wall that Mexico would pay for. Somebody’s doing the raping.

      $20 bet says this a Mexican.

    They had a sponsored off
    Campus Halloween party 2019, a didtdu nothing sold some fake x, so a “bad” hombre went to his truck retrieved a pistol and shot the place up for no good reason. We need free
    College for everyone just saying

  14. avatar Missouri_Mule says:

    This incident must not fit the main stream media format because there is an almost total news blackout.

    1. avatar James Campbell says:

      So true.
      I just got off a phone call with a friend in San Antonio. He had no idea there was a shooting at A&M today. Just like the school shooting in Cali a few months ago, done by some “gender fluid” or trans students (one born male, the other female) so the media didn’t cover it non-stop for days/weeks.

      1. avatar Chief Censor says:

        Two women and a child shot. The women are dead, the toddler is in the hospital.

  15. avatar Sam Hill says:

    Wait ! What!
    Can’t be, it’s against the law to have a gun in a gun free zone. They must have been stabbed, or, hit with a spoon. We need some more laws. Don’t seem like the laws we have against homicide and all the laws against theft in all it’s forms, are working. Maybe 25 or 30 more laws will put a stop to all those crimes. I know what will stop a lot of those crimes. Make everyone responsible for protecting themselves and their property. Start passing out a thousand dollars to anyone who shoots somebody that is endangering a life, or, is in the act of stealing or damaging property. Make it two thousand if the perpetrator is killed and/or has/had a prior arrest for the same type offense. Stop incriminating decent people for doing what ever is necessary to prevent a crime against them or their property. If you think being shot to death for stealing a candy bar or bike is too harsh my suggestion is don’t steal.

    1. avatar jwtaylor says:

      Again, not a gun free zone.

      1. avatar TXDude says:

        JWTaylor Texas campuses are partially gun free zones. Only those who have a license to carry in Texas can possess handguns in physical buildings on the campus of an institution of higher education. I saw another post about under 21yr olds and LTC eligibility, the only exemption is for active duty military who are at least 18yrs old. The age requirement alone makes the probability of the shooter being an LTC holder extremely low.

        1. avatar jwtaylor says:

          State owned campuses are not partially gun free zones. They are not gun free zones at all. Any LTC holder can have a gun there. It’s the same as other state owned property or any privately owned building without specific 30-06, 30-07 signs. 21 year old students, parents, RA’s, visitors, anyone with an LTC can legally have a openly or concealed firearm there.
          I don’t think anyone is arguing the shooter had an LTC.

    Thousands and thousands of people gathered together and no violence?

  17. avatar Army ROTC cadet MSII says:

    White people- you really need to start true costs of diversity.

    If you can make the mental leap that somehow “guns save lives”, then you can see the negative externalities of integration, immigration, and diversity.

    Nb4 I believe in the first and second amendments. I have a right to say “Jews control the media” and I defend that right with my AR15, DIAS, solvent trap, level IV body armor, pvs14 and an IR laser mounted on both my rifle and FN Fiveseven loaded with EA T6B.

    1. avatar jwtaylor says:

      None of that made any sense at all. Troll harder.

  18. avatar Paul on Harsens Island says:

    What’s the point of posts like this? Each day theres a shooting like this. These stories don’t show up in my newspapers. Why post them here every day? I like the gun and gear reviews here but a shooting of 2 or 3 people isn’t news or important.

    1. avatar Sam Hill says:

      Then why you read about them and use your valuable time to bitch about it. As an important a person as you I would not think in all fairness to the world you should squander it so.

      1. avatar Paul on Harsens Island says:

        Great job of ignoring my question and making a personal attack on me. Do you even read the articles? JWT corrected your misstatements in previous comments. Why don’t you troll some other site.

        1. avatar Sam Hill says:

          Oh my bad, you had a question in amongst the bitching. How could that be? You know everything and never make a mistake. And if I am your definition of a troll, you just made your first. Because in 76 years I didn’t know you existed and now that I do I could actually care less. Byeee.
