    Schools in Ridgefield, Conn., are on lockdown Monday morning while police search the area for a man with a rifle. A man with a weapon was reported near the Branchville train station, the Stamford Advocate reported Monday morning.
    In a statement released Monday morning, Ridgefield Superintendent Deborah Low warned of a "possibly suspicious person in the Branchville Train Station area."
    "Branchville Elementary school busses have been diverted to East Ridge Middle School and BES students are in the auditorium," Low said in her statement, according to the Connecticut Post.
    A motorist traveling on Route 7 reportedly told police he saw a man with a rifle. State police have already searched one unidentified man but he was released, NBC Connecticut reported around 10 a.m.
    WFSB Channel 3 tweeted schools in Redding and Easton are also on lockdown because of "the Ridgefield situation."
    Ridgefield is about 20 miles away from Newtown, Conn., where a gunman opened fire on Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Twenty-seven people, including 20 children, were killed in the incident.

    Hunter or guy with a walking stick would be my bet. I know a lot of guys that use train tracks to hike out to hunting areas.

    And the explanation he gave: :facepalm:
    Beach Police Chief David McGill told the Los Angeles Times that the gunman was "unhappy about a lot in life and decided this was his best way of releasing his tension."

    I've never understood the logic in allowing people to carry Hidden weapons legally but you can't strap one on so it can be seen. There is a better deterrent factor knowing a person has a weapon then thinking that no one around is capable of stopping you. Wouldn't it be safer for the police if they could visually see who has and who hasn't a piece on them?

    That's what I'm thinking. We used to walk the tracks all the time to get out into the woods. So do the deer.

    They might as well close the schools down for xmas break now and let everything simmer down. My kid's been out of school since the 7th and doesn't go back till 1/7. They could use snow days to make up the days if needed. Seems the gov could wave the mandatory days rule in this case.

    seeing people carrying guns makes people nervous. first time i saw duck hunters carrying their shotguns into the diner, all i wanted to do was leave fast.

    I grew up in a small town. Friday night fun consisted of shooting rats at the town dump. I guess it depends where you're from when it comes to seeing folks with rifles or side arms.
