The low information folks aka bottom feeders, won’t pay anything for Obama Care. You and I are going to pick up their tab.

This story is obviously a fabrication. Everyone knows that DC is a weapons free zone with some of the strictest gun control in the country. I’m sure a retraction will be issued soon.

Could this be the beginning of an orchestrated ‘state of emergency’ the Raghead In Chief needs to declare martial law and ensconce himself as dictator? Or is this the first sign of genuine revolt against him ? Stay sharp,patriots!

Senator: 'Shots Fired Outside Capitol'

"The U.S. is third in murders throughout the world. If you remove Chicago, Washington, D.C., New Orleans and Detroit then the U.S. is fourth from the bottom.
These are four cities with the toughest gun laws in the nation and, of course, these are four cities ruled by Democrats.

Actually, I don't care what anyone tried to do as long as it was not trying to do something to Senator Cruz.

I could give a crap about the White House or any of its occupants.

The entire response system of real-time media interaction HAS to contain the new in-vogue phrase "shelter-in-place."

Well, all I've got to say is how about how long and how deep real-America has had to "shelter-in-place" since this half black, full Muslim, affirmative action, Narcissistic megalomaniac has been in office?

I expect to see now how close our pResident came to being endangered by this middle aged, white, conservative on a mad-dog illegal gun rampage......

ABC reporting one SS vehicle was seen upside down. It was traveling at high speed when another person raised ‘in-ground’ barriers.

Just sounding all clear in Capitol and office buildings

Woman in the car didn’t have a gun. Cops are saying she tried to run them over so they blew her away.

Thank you for that link, "X"
I am always open to clear, authoritative education.
I originally questioned the report, but never got reliable responses.

It may take me a while to unravel the reality, since both sides use the confusion/change the metric technique to validate their position.
