A student at a Rochester college faces charges after police found two assault rifles inside his room at one of the school's suburban residence buildings. Authorities say they also found more than 300 rounds of ammunition in Jonathan Hackenburg's car.Supposed the employee was deaf? And this turned out deadly? Suppose a similar event happened at Gallaudet or NTID where a gunman would be shooting at people on campus and students unable to hear the bang and richochet of bullets to run and take cover? But instead see the confusion of people dropping like flies not knowing, at first, what is going on until too late? Indeed, this is heavy food to chew on. Let's hope nothing like this ever occurs.
The 22-year-old from Hackettstown, New Jersey was arrested yesterday after an employee at the Rochester Institute of Technology's Inn and Conference Center told police he heard a sound like someone racking a gun.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Department says deputies found a Stag-15 rifle and a Romanian made A-R-15 rifle.

This is a bit surreal here. A student was arrested for possession of assault rifles on the campus of RIT which is also home of NTID for deaf and hard of hearing students. What's more, police found more than 300 ammunition rounds for the rifles.
