Shooting at Family Research Council - Shooter Opposed Chick-Fil-A & FRC's Pro-Life Pro-Family Agenda
Texas Conservative Republican News ^ | 8/15/2012 | David Bellow

Posted on 08/15/2012 1:35:29 PM PDT by davidbellow

A hero guard was shot today as he stopped a gunman from entering the Family Research Council in Washington DC. The shooting is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism. Family Research Council is a Christian, conservative based organization. Fox News reports that witnesses say the shooter was speaking out against the Family Research Council's Pro-Life, Pro-Family agenda as he tried to enter the building. A security Guard stopped the shooter to ask where he was going and that is when the security guard was shot. Thankfully, the guard fought back, even after being shot, and was able to wrestle the shooter to the ground and took the gun. Witnesses say that after the shooter was subdued, the shooter told the guard, "it was not about you, it was about what this place stands for." The shooter was allegedly even carrying a Chick-Fil-A bag as he tried to enter the building.

According to Media Research Center, Tony Perkins, the President of FRC, was an outspoken defender of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s public stand against same-sex marriage, which made the fast-food chain a flashpoint in the nation’s culture wars. The Cathy family foundation has funded the Family Research Council.

‘‘He’s taking a bold stand,’’ Perkins said after Cathy’s comments were reported. ‘‘Chick-fil-A is a Bible-based, Christian-based business who treats their employees well. They have been attacked in the past about their stand. But they refuse to budge on this matter, and I commend them for what they are doing.’’

Family Research Council has been involved in protecting traditional marriage nationwide and fighting against the killing of unborn babies. FRC recently supported and promoted the Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. I was one of the many people who waited in line to get a chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A to support free speech and support traditional marriage. It was a record breaking day for Chick-Fil-A. Those opposed to Chick-Fil-A and Christian, conservative values must have been very upset to see that that most Americans support family values. Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day brought thousands of supporters to EACH Chick-Fil-A all across America. The anti-Family, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Homosexual Marriage supporters were only able to get very few supporters to show up to protests "kiss ins" at few Chick-Fil-A locations in America.

It seems as though this shooting was motivated by hate and anger by a man who does not like the Christian, conservative beliefs of FRC or Chick-Fil-A. It does not help that this hate was likely fueled by liberals and Democrats who got on national TV and illegally and unconstitutionally threatened to use their government power to kick Chick-Fil-A out of their cities because of the personal Christian beliefs of the owner of Chick-Fil-A. These liberals call for tolerance of other people's beliefs, unless you are a Christian and then they don't seem to believe your beliefs should not be tolerated. They go past just not tolerating Christian beliefs though. Can you imagine a mayor saying that no businesses would be allowed to open in his city if the business was owned by a gay person? There would be national outrage! And yet, the liberal media did not seem outraged that mayors in cities like Boston and Chicago openly stated that they would prevent a business (Chick-Fil-A) from opening in their cities because the owner has Christian beliefs.

What a sad day in America.

Even as I post this article, the liberal New York Times has the articles about this shooting at the bottom of the news section under the title "More News." Higher up on the NY Times front page, under the main news section, they have a much more breaking news article titled: Gay Male Stand-Up Comics Await Spotlight

They’ve identified the FRC shooter as Floyd Corkins, 28 years old. So far, the information I’ve found on him says he lived in Herndon, VA, that he was an elementary school teacher at Tuckahoe Elementary School in Arlington, and that he may have been in the Air Force at one time, and may have been stationed at Andrews AFB. He also apparently lived in Oklahoma City previously.

I won’t give the address I found, just in case, but it appears that the total property value for his property in Herndon is $330,640.

He appears to be affiliated with George Mason University (probably a former student) and signed an online petition - http://www.petitiononline.com/petitions/gmutariq/signatures?page=2 - demanding that Tariq Khan be released. Tariq Khan was a GMU student and former Air Force member, who was arrested for leading a violent protest against military recruiting on campus (i.e. definitely left-leaner).

This may be his Facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/Floyd.Jackie.corkins

I haven’t seen any pictures released of the perp yet, but from his Facebook friends list, he is probably African-American.

Might explain the Tariq Khan connexion. A lot of the names on the petition were Muslim, as well.

Looks like a pervert nut.

According to the news, he just bought the gun five days ago. He allegedly had thirty rounds of ammunition and Chick-Fil-A leaflets. He also said that he did it because of the FRC's stance on gay marriage.

The shooting is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism.

Just as it's impossible for blacks to discriminate against whites, liberals trying to kill Christians for being against abortion can not possibly be terrorism. You people just don't get it do you?

Irony of the day.

The shooter’s sole Facebook interest was “Living a Happy Life”.

As long as Eric The Red and his ilk are in charge of the DOJ, the blacks will get away with endless acts of discrimination from white voter suppression to generalized intimidation.  You wait, we'll see New Black Panthers and billy clubs manning the doors at polling places in November.

Just another MSNBC Klux Klan useful idiot, demanding ‘Tolerance!’ through violence.

Rachel Maddow should be held DIRECTLY responsible for this. She has been pimping this anti-Christian HATE for weeks now.

It’s not suprising that one of her followers, already teetering on the edge of sanity to begin with, would step over the line.

If you go to the Advocate, under this news story, click on the readers comments. They are terrible. Here is a few of them.

what goes around, comes around... FRC: your hate begets hate! personally, I think whomever shot the security guard should have waited for tony perkins to come out of their compound... I have no tolerance for religiously psychotic hate groups like FRC, Exodus International and others... they can all go to hell!

We give Martin Luther King and “nonviolent social change” most of the credit for the civil rights movement, but it was people like Malcolm X and the Black Panthers who scared enough people that things finally changed. We have asked nicely for far too long with virtually no progress. I am sick and tired of whiny wimps saying “violence is never the answer” because it is the answer when anti-gay people and groups continue to attack us! FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE! Fight back, it’s time to stop being such sissies and bash back! How many more stories of violence, torture and murder against gays and lesbians will you tolerate? The bigots need to feel fear, real physical fear, just like they try to do to us and I say...FINALLY! I wish he had gotten the leaders!

I think the teaching and the Air Force stuff is an older (55) man of the same name in Herndon. Perhaps the dad. I found that age related info on Veromi, a people search site.

Not necessarily. There is another Floyd Corkins who is 55 and lives in the area. This is apparently a picture of him:

Doesn't look like the guy they're showing on the news, so I suspect the schoolteacher (pic is from the school website) is the 55 year old, not the 28 year old. They may be related, but I kinda don't think it's the same guy now.

From FOX Nation:

Sources told Fox News that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.”

Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism, although James McJunkin, the head of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman’s motive.


DON’T KNOW??!!!

If you read the statements and follow the actions of many of the nuttier leftists, there must be thousands right on th edge. They certainly don’t shrink from wrecking things. Many of them regard humans as equal to chickens. And of course, we have the 20th century where leftist madmen murdered tens of millions.

If you’re serious, Glock G19 and training. It fires 9mm so good stopping power and manageable recoil. Once a full magazine is inserted and a round chambered all you have to do is pull the trigger to fire. Training because you want to be able to hit your target and all you have to do to fire it, after it’s made ready, is pull the trigger. It’s a quality, reliable gun for not a lot of money, relatively speaking.

Freepers tend to lose their firearms in boating accidents, so they may not be good sources.

Just last week I lost an entire reloader. And all the supplies. My wife told me I didn’t need to bring all that on our canoe trip but NOOOOOOO I wouldn’t listen.

The trouble is that it's such a traumatic experience that most of the victims can't even remember what body of water they were in at the time.

That's it. Ban bodies of water.
