The gist of it:

"Authorities have called off a lockdown that paralyzed Western Connecticut State University and Danbury Public Schools after learning that a person reported to have been toting a rifle was in fact a university employee carrying a microphone stand.

The state university and local schools were locked down early Monday afternoon following reports that a person had entered the university with a rifle. Mayor Mark Boughton’s office said Monday afternoon that one suspect was in custody, and that police were emptying campus buildings to find a possible second suspect. At one point, Boughton wrote on Twitter that city police were using drones to scan rooftops for the second suspect.

But by 2:30 p.m., university officials clarified that the “suspect” was an employee carrying a microphone stand and declared, “All clear.” ""

A couple on months ago a videographer was detained for carrying a 'weapon' that turned out to be his camera tripod.

Considering that you and me and others here carry mic stands the no social issues or politics does not have anything to do with this article. I am also concerned about carrying cymbal stands in public cause they might also be mistaken for a rifle. With all the shoot first and ask question later by the cops I will now transport single mic stands in a trap case until inside the place where its going to be. Many people have been shot and killed by police for holding cells fones that the cops thought were a gun. Just be aware that a mic stand,cymbal stand, and anything similar can be mistaken for a gun and with all the school  shootings that have happened lately I dont want to be shot.

It's only a problem when you're RACKING another ROUND based stand for that CHAMBER music festival. Be sure you RECOIL your cables properly or you'll be FIRED.
