Security Guard Shot at Family Research Council in Downtown DC (complete details)
NBC Washington ^ | 08/15/12 | Carissa DiMargo

Posted on 08/15/2012 12:44:39 PM PDT by winoneforthegipper

The shooter entered the building at 801 G Street NW at around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday. He approached the front desk and said he was an intern before pulling a Sig Sauer 9 mm handgun from a backpack.

The guard confronted him, and they had an altercation before the shooter fired, striking the guard in the arm. Despite his injury, he gained control of the weapon and held it on the suspect.

Authorities found two loaded magazines with 15 rounds each in the suspect's backpack, as well as Chik-Fil-A promotional materials, NBC4's Jackie Bensen reported.

Killer girlyboi alert!!!!

NBC is reporting this? Oh, wait. that’s right. Next will be the spin as to how the Right is “inciting” people to “protect” the Left by doing this kind of thing. Always the Right’s fault, ya’ know.....

NBC left out the details the he spouted anti-FRC speech before firing. This was an act of terrorism.

From the article:

The suspect apparently took the Metro downtown and parked his car at a Falls Church Metro station, Williams said. It's not currently clear whether it was East or West Falls Church.

Kind of a stupid criminal. Was he planning on a fast getaway via subway?

I'll admit to being one of the people who thought "what's so heroic about getting shot?" after reading the initial versions of this story.

But come to find out the guard got shot, then wrestled the SOB to the ground, disarmed him, and held him at gunpoint with his own gun... Heroic indeed!

Here's to that guard's swift and full recovery! Shame the only gun he had available was the one he took from the shooter, though maybe disarming him was the best option: "charge a gun, run from a knife."

Just odd really...

Sure had a potent weapon and suitable ammo to perhaps not comeback.

So, did the perp yell “Obama akbar” or “MSNBC uber alles” before shooting?

He may not have intended to get away. Fortunately it's moot thanks to that guard.

Another indication of the left’s derangement syndrome. As we get closer to the election and if it looks as if Odummy is going to get rolled, look for more of these supposedly open minded free speech types to start rolling.

My advice, carry em if you got em.

The current report at CNN leaves it out, too. The "news" media need time to figure out how to spin this to keep the Left from looking bad.

Heck, for all we know, the treatment he is likely to get in prison from the other inmates might be a dream come true for him.

many of us knew this was coming just by looking at how the homostapo .
The homostapo and the loony left have been targetting people for siome time and it was only a matter of time before this happens and comments like Biden yesterday only helps their twisted minds to do this.

Sadly much of their bigotry could have been stopped if our side would nto have ignored the homostapo’s actions, boycott, this, protest them , hell even a cake maker was targeted by the homostapo.

Our side ignores all of this thus letting the left get away with their actions and people on TALK RADIO, O.R. \HANNITY etc

TAKE NOTE, YOU COWARDS

If Zero has bad numbers going into October, I expect shenanaigans like this to rev up. If he has a bad night on Nov. 5th, I expect serious unrest, at least in urban areas.

Have your bugout bag and gear ready. Plan now, especially if you live in or near a city. I'm considering a short "vacation" in the country.

FOX is not even running headlines on this, they’re all nervous that it might be another homo, just like the homo who gave our secrets away and still our sdie ignored who he was.
They want their sexual fecal sex out there for us to know then they shouldn’t be telling people to shut up when the homo does something based on their fecal sex

TAKE NOTE, YOU COWARDS

That web page says the house was sold in 2002... which would make now 28 year old an 18 year old when he bought the house.

The MSM may have heard the address on a scanner, plugged in property info and popped out the name... may have shooter's name wrong. Or maybe he is Floyd Jr.

I’m probably wrong but it doesn’t look like the same guy to me. It would be unfortunate if we repeated the Error from the Colorado movie shooting.

Yeah, so I think either the name is incorrect or he is a Floyd Jr. He’s definitely not the teacher posted above.

WASHINGTON — The man who allegedly shot a security officer at the D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council expressed opposition to the group’s positions on gay marriage and had a Chick-Fil-A bag on him when he entered the building, according to multiple media reports.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, officials with the FBI, the Metropolitan Police Department and the Family Research Council would not confirm the reports that the suspect expressed his displeasure with the FRC’s opposition to gay marriage. Law enforcement officials said the matter was still under investigation and it was too early to speak to the individual’s motivation.

The incident could be handled as an incident of domestic terrorism depending on the suspect’s motivations, an FBI spokeswoman told reporters on the scene.

NBC and ABC7 identified him as 28-year-old Floyd Corkins of Virginia. Fox News obtained photos of the man, apparently taken by a witness, that show the suspect in handcuffs and his bloody shirt fully unbuttoned.
