Plenty of those Tea Party types in Tennessee, it can’t always be the Amish, y’know.

I'll bet we learn what kind of clothes he was wearing before we learn his race or religion.

Unless he is a white guy, registered Republican or a professed Christian. Then we will know all about the most minute details of his life before the sun goes down.

Second recruiting shooting on Obama’s watch.

Wonder how much they will tell us about how long this guy was on their radar this time.

Via SkyNews—”Police told the station they suspect the alleged gunman was an employee relieved of duty who opened fire after returning to their vehicle.”

Looks like maybe it’s only 2 people after all. CNN saying some kind of fight between National Guardsmen at a NG unit located next to the Naval facility.

Second recruiting shooting on Obama’s watch.

Headline says 4 shot at Navy recruiting base. Body of the story says 4 shot near Navy recruting base. No indication at all that military personnel were involved.

No, not Amish,

but probably guaranteed that his name contains some variant of “Muhamed” and/or “Hussein”.

If the perp is muslim, it’ll be “common workplace violence.”

If he’s white and especially a TEA Partier, it’ll be “yet another in a series of racist, right-wing terrorism.”

As opposed to release of the most minute details almost prior to the shooting, as the Enemedia releases the pre-written "news" of wag-the-dog crisis generation and headline choreography.

Local Memphis news reports indicate this one really is workplace violence; a disciplined worker going out and getting his gun, then going postal.

According to Fox’ Shep Smith, 2 people injured-—one person shot in foot; another person shot in leg. Shooter used a small handgun.

Shooter, according to Fox source, had just received some discipline, “maybe” had just been fired (another source: “relieved of duty”), went to his car, and retrieved a small handgun.

Shooter in custody.

Apparently a national guardsman opened fire after being disciplined/relieved of duty.

I handled a firearm exactly one time over 5 years while in the Navy and that was in boot camp. No need to any other time since I was in a technical field.

This was actually work place violence. I live in the area and one o my boys is an officer stationed on the base. Probably wasn't a Navy recruiter that did the shooting, if the story is true about him being disciplined by the National Guard. There is a recruiting command on the base, but I don't think that actual recruiting is done there. Also the National Guard is actually on the Nzvy base. The rent-a-cops on the gates never check for fire arms even though signs say no weapons.
