lol... If there was even a hint that this was the start of a coordinated effort to take evict the tyrants from power... I would leave work this very moment and start driving to DC to join the battle...

However... Its probably just anther democrat suicide bomber sent on a mission to change the subject.... Or give the progressives in the GOP a “reason” to whimp the F out....

This is why they want to eliminate the 2nd amendment. The political class knows they are inflaming people, and destroying lives.

The political class fears the public that they are tormenting.

I surely hope it is not some Conservative who went mad. This would be terrible for the Republicans right now and for gun owners. We sure don't need this. However, it is coincidental...whenever the Dems want to prove a point, or are having trouble...there is some sort of shooting.

Funny how I don't care about Obama or if he is safe./s

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As if Reid could give a damn. If he could care less about some child dying of cancer before he compromises and signs a piecemeal bill - he sure won’t care if someone gets shot at the Capitol.

I would guess it’s one of three things...

Another crazed Democrat “bringing a gun” as Obama has suggested...

Some “taker” that blew a gasket thinking his freebies were going to stop...

Someone accessed the clown’s social security records again and took a bullet to the head like the last guy.

I surely hope it is not some Conservative who went mad.

See my post 28. Republican Rep. Duffy from Wisconsin, an outspoken opponent to Obamacare, was grabbed and yelled at. He is unharmed.

Who do you suppose would be upset with him? : )
