May the Stupid Be With You: College Goes on Lockdown Because Someone Thought a Lightsaber Was a Gun

Stupid, this is. Hurt, your brain will.

Farmingdale State College on New York’s Long Island went into lockdown earlier today and students were advised to “shelter in place” after someone called 911 because they saw a man in a campus parking lot armed with a dangerous weapon…

That dangerous weapon turned out to be a lightsaber.

Police responded around 9:40 am thinking someone was assembling a rifle on a college campus. What they found was a student “heavily armed” with a toy Star Wars lightsaber.

Here is a lightsaber:


Here is a rifle:






Reminds me of the time a town went on lockdown because a guy was dressed up in a stormtrooper costume in the middle of the afternoon. Are there large segments of the population who cannot tell the difference between reality and fiction? Who do not know the difference between a lightsaber and a rifle? Because that’s a lot scarier than a rifle.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, hopefully the level of idiocy never quite reached the dazzling heights it has achieved in the politically correct fear mills “safe spaces” that represent modern American college campuses.

The sad part about this is, because we live in such a militarized police state in this country, the student with the lightsaber is actually lucky police responded and actually decided to “investigate” a call about someone potentially armed with a gun. They didn’t just show up and shoot the first person they saw who might fit the description, as typically happens in this country these days. Such a weapons call could have and has easily gotten an innocent person killed.

Although America’s college campuses may be gun-free zones, they are also quickly turning into critical thinking-free zones and free speech-free zones, on top of being a bastion of pervasive political correctness, and a place where everyone is afraid of everything (including their own thoughts, which may hurt other people’s feelings)… making college campuses some of the scariest places to be in the U.S. today.
