Didn’t the White Hut take a few small caliber a couple of years ago?

I think so. I had forgotten about it till I saw it again on the news a couple of days ago.

"Ortega blamed Obama for problems with the federal government and believed Obama is the devil, the witness told federal agents."

Not at all irrational these daze.

Thanks for the link. I wonder why they did not say he was a tea party activist?

At the time, it didn't seem to me that it was straight shot from the South.

The graphic makes it clear that the shots were made over open ground, and not at all errant/lucky.

VOTER fraud was rampant in Ohio, Pennsylvania and more than likely the other 55 states..after all Hussein told us there are 57 states in this Country..

so was he legitimately elected to two terms..I am doubtful..it is a sad world that we can't trust the president, Congress, and the MSM…for they all lie to the American public, any more when Hussein Obama comes on TV I change channels. Once you are known as a Liar, you will never be trusted or believed again.

Very interesting. And under-reported.

Can’t tell if what was used is an AK47 variant (generic “assault weapon”) or a Dragunov (which can be construed as an “assault weapon”, but is designed for sniping). I’m guessing the latter, as the distance was near exactly 600m.

What’s shocking is that involves what we may safely presume is an idiot driving up to a street-level open-access point, at 4 hours past sunset, firing 9 rounds, and hitting a residence window - _and_getting_away_, found only because the idiot _abandoned_his_car_, weapons included, about 2km away. No wonder the occupant is paranoid.

Yogi Berra said it right. De ja vu all over again. How many time are we to hear these words from this guy?
Will he lie to us about this just like the Nidal terrorist killings in Ft. Hood that are now termed “work place violence”.
Or the Benghazi attack, that he claimed was due to a video. Remember he aid he'd get to the bottom of that too. Attackers are still free but the poor schlep is the scape goat.

"Romanian Cugir semiautomatic rifle" [with scope].

According to Wiki.

I had found a more detailed description, but can't find it now.

No matter what he’s commenting on - unless it’s about an uncoming fundraiser - he always looks so very bored.

"I wonder if he will sign an executive order to outlaw guns in America? You know he would like to"

Nah. That's too drastic.

He'll disband the military completely since work place violence happened twice within 4 years.

"Not terror its “soldier to soldier”."

Is this a new term we are to use from now on? First it's work place violence,now it's soldier to soldier. m'kay.

Saying that it "soldier to soldier" diminishes this situation. As in, Oh,it's just boys doing what boys do.

Crazy man to humans is more appropriate.

"Every time Clown Prince nobama uses “folks”, I throw-up just a little. This criminal gives me the creeps."

Same here...he has kind of ruined the word.

Try saying 'folk dancing' - there's that little reflux.

Try saying 'Volkswagen' - same deal.

Good dancing and motoring but I'm all 'folk-ed' out of B. Hussein O.'s use of the word.

'Period'.
