    Apparently there are 3 shooters. 1 dead, 2 at large.

    And right on cue.... Homeland jumps the gun and says it's totally not terrorism. They have no idea what the hell is happening, but dammit, dont you dare think it's the T word!

    I think we're all up on current events, but it was only one shooter, and he was apparently a nutjob. He also apparently did not use an AR-15 in the attacks, but all the media outlets aren't mentioning that, and last night on NBC Nightly News, they used a graphic of a guy with an AR-15-type weapon hosing people down in the concourse.

    Apparently, he used a shotgun and two pistols taken from officers he had taken down.

    Just the same, eyes are rolling back over more gun control.

    It's interesting that usually by now the MSM is telling us what brand of rifle was used, how much ammo the shooter had, etc., and they're not doing it now nearly as much.

    More gun control? It was gun control that "caused" this. (Not really, but if it was not there, it MIGHT have been prevented.)
    Gun free zones are not what we need when we have criminals walking around with guns.

    Virginia, Bloomberg's whipping boy, refused to sell Alexis a handgun because he wasn't a resident. So let's focus on how the hell he got a shotgun into a secure facility.
