Common sense at times prevails

GOP presidential hopeful Ben Carson stirred up controversy with his recent comments related to the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

During a Tuesday interview on “Fox & Friends,” Carson was asked what he would have done had he been in that classroom during the incident:

“I’m glad you asked that question. Because not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me… I would say, ‘Hey guys! Everybody attack him! He may shoot me but he can’t get us all!’”

Well, it appears that a gunman on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff overnight was stopped because of the actions of bystanders.

Around 1:20am Friday, 18-year-old NAU freshman Steven Jones pulled out a gun in a parking lot near a dormitory:

After a post-party confrontation between two groups of students, Jones reportedly fired multiple shots, wounding three male students and killing Colin Brough, a junior business major.

All of the victims were members of the Delta Chi Fraternity, but Jones was not.
