News /

House lawmakers are worried about a rise in antisemitism on college campuses. They are calling for an effort to combat this issue. University presidents were in the hot seat Tuesday, facing questions from lawmakers, like Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-N.Y.), about how their schools respond to antisemitism on their campuses.

"How do we get into the mud and do the real work of fighting antisemitism," Bowman asked.

"The immediate action is very important and the calling out of the hateful action," University of Pennsylvania President Liz Magill said. Since the October 7th attack, the anti-defamation league reports a more than 300% increase in antisemitism across the country.

For the second time in two days, a student reportedly brought a gun onto the campus of Redondo Union High School. The school went on lockdown Tuesday morning when authorities received a report of a weapon on campus sometime before 9:30 a.m., based on a message apparently sent to parents by school officials.

At about 10:45 a.m., the Redondo Beach Police Department announced on social media that a lockdown at the school had been lifted and the campus was "secured."

"A person has been detained and no other people are outstanding," police said. That person was later identified by the RBPD as a 15-year-old 10th-grader. The gun was never fired, and no injuries were reported.
