Shot Fired Into GOP Headquarters

September 2, 2004

BREAKING NEWS: 2 Dozen Bush Supporters Were Inside Huntington Building

A shot was fired at the Republican Party headquarters in Huntington Thursday night, while two dozen supporters of George W. Bush watched him accept his party's nomination on television.

Huntington police said reports came in about 10:30 p.m. from the building on 4th Avenue at 14th Street. One bullet hole could be seen in a large glass window, through a sign that said marriage is between "One Man, One Woman."

Police said they had not found bullet fragments inside the headquarters and had no way of knowing what type of weapon was used.

Eyewitnesses told 13 News they heard a loud bang but weren't sure what had happened. One woman said she found pieces of glass on her neck and shoulders.

Tune in to 13 News Friday morning for more on this story.

Oops looks like a homo had a hissy fit after hearing GWB speak of marriage being between a man and a woman.

Oh, oh - we're supposed to believe they're peace loving "couples" that just want the same rights as NORMAL people and their not violent. Nah ... LOL!

They are OUT OF CONTROL!

With the absolutely reckless hatred the left has been throwing at the President for 31/2 years this is no real surprise. The democrat party better get a hold of these Marxist Anti American leaders in their party or they are going to cease to exist.

My 14 year old son and I were watching W's speech tonight, and when they frog-marched out the fruitcake, my son said, "why would anybody be SO stupid as to try that?" I pointed out that you didn't see ANY of that kind of crap going on in Boston. Makes a very pointed statement about the contrast between the levels of civility of the two parties, eh?

Well, all kidding aside, I worry that you might be right. So I will pose THE question -

How long will it be before a shot is fired into a crowd of President Bush/Military Supporters?

I live there (here). If it were weather, or flooding, they would have interrupted the broadcast continually. Was not even the lead story after W's speech in fact, when the news DID come on. Hey, it's West Virginia, and we are 2:1 dims here. Home of Robert Byrd. You know, scare them with guns, or hoods, or burning crosses if necessary.

[Totally apologetic; most of us here are not like this (he says with a reddened face]....

It's only been 90 minutes since this happened, and the story was probably written less than a half-hour after the attack. Give them time.

May not be a gunshot. We had a series of "shootings" here some years back, where cars on the freeway were getting their windows blown out by someone. The cops could never find bullet fragments. Then they noticed lots of glass marbles lying around in the areas where the shootings were happening. They finally came to the realization that someone was perched up on a hilltop, firing marbles with a slingshot. THe marbles would shatter and mix in with the glass fragments, which is why they didn't know this was happening until whole marbles were found. If they don't find bullet fragments in this case, I'd put money on the marble/slingshot theory.

I think the GOP convention, with the focus on the military and values and patriotism, just sealed the deal in West Virginia for Bush. Arkansas, too.

They said they didn't find any fragments. Did they find an intact bullet?

No form of violence like that should be tolerated in the least.

My guess is that it was an emotionally-driven protest of the Republican platform's stance against gay marriage, and not meant to harm or really frighten anyone. Probably someone who cannot fathom that there is a reason (other than pure hatred) not to change the definition of marriage.

My policy is 10 shots to the torso and pause to negotiate with one left in the chamber, the clip dropped and another one in hand. I've got a Colt 1911 but it's too bulky to conceal during the summer in New England.

Fire a shot into a building and not mean to harm or frighten anyone?

Reminds me of a radio contest to determine the biggest redneck. One question was, what's the biggest thing you've ever shot. The eventual winner said "a building". "Was anyone in it?????!" "Uh .... I dunno."

You know, I couldn't help wondering that myself. If these "people" (and I use the term loosely) are behaving this way now, when President Bush gets re-elected will his life and/or the lives of others associated with him become a "quest" shall we say?
