    Two men were arrested Monday at Laney College in Oakland after being found with guns in their backpacks as they were leaving a journalism class, police said.
    Investigators said that the two, in addition to being students at the community college, were members of an East Oakland gang.
    Reginald Battle, 20, had a loaded .40-caliber pistol in his backpack, and Christian Williams, 21, had an unloaded TEC-9 in his, said police Sgt. Randy Brandwood, who commands the Violent Crime Unit that made the arrests.
    Both were arrested shortly before 10 a.m. as they left a journalism class at the community college near Lake Merritt, Brandwood said.
    Battle is on probation and parole for gun and robbery convictions, and Williams is on probation for robbery, Brandwood said.

    The most amazing part of the story was that they still teach classes for a field that has no jobs. Does that school still have a "Stage Coach driving" major?

    I'm sure Sarah Palin is tweeting right now about their 1st and 2nd ammendment rights not being respected - and now they'll get to use (or not use) their 5th ammendment rights.

    The ad in the top right corner of my page right now is for "Professional Firearms Training."

    Please tell me Bubbler isn't your gang name, too.

    Let's not be silly here. Sarah Palin does not believe gangsters who obtain guns illegally should be protected under the 2nd amendment. Stop being a dumbass.

    I guess they figure they'll need a gun to handle all the swimming and JV soccer parents who whine that they never get enough coverage.

    Correct. Because she hates black people and would-be journalists.
