Firing in the air? Interesting.

Did anyone say if he made requests re: info or a particular person/persons?

That was a direct quote from a witness. Two rounds went into the air.

I wonder how anxious the Administration will be to tie this to Assad and give them a Casus Belli.

I think I have to take my AR15 back to the gun shop. Mine only shoots one at a time.

Of course, an M4 will shoot three automatic shots at a time.

I wish these folks would shut up about weapons unless they have been trained.

Martha just said it was an M-16 and then went on to call it an AR-15 that fires in three shot bursts. LOL

-— That would assume that some in the military carry arms when on base here in the U.S.A. As the Fort Hood Islamokazi showed us, that is sadly not the case ——

Did some contract work at a base recently. The front gate was guarded by heavily armed private security. Crash barriers were in place. Bomb inspections of cars without passes.

Meanwhile, there were no arms visible on the base, and the base perimeter was protected by a chain link fence. Can’t imagine how a chain link fence could be defeated.

There is so much talk about the weapons. This is an attack on the military. That should be their headline.

Witnesses describe shooter as ‘tall black guy’.
Shooter shot toward them. All were inside of a building. Fire alarm was sounding to evacuate the building.

The other thread says THREE shooters.

Anyone know if this is true?

Washington post reporting 3 shoooters: http://www.washingtonpost.com/

Listening to 105.9 FM/630 AM WMAL via I(heart)radio on my iphone. Pretty good non-emotional reporting

More importantly, BLACK eye-witnesses describe shooter as “tall black guy”....so it’s OK.

First woman said “it looked like he was dark skinned”, but then the black FNC reporter asked if it was a black guy and both witnesses said yes, a tall black guy.

Obviously not something anyone would want to speculate about...like the the kind of gun used, etc, boy it’d be bad if the reporterette speculated about that....

Washington Post reporting 3 shooters, including 1 in fatigues.

Description is now tall, over 6 foot, black male for one shooter, in “fatigues”. (Just trying to be verbatim)

6 nearby elementary schools on lock down.

Incoming flights at Reagan airport allowed to land but no outgoing flights all per WMAL radio via Iheartradio on Iphone.

Just saw an interview with two people. A black man and a white woman. Woman described the shooter as dark skined, black man said he was black. LOL. Woman being PC and man telling the truth!

“Regardless, Fox News has reported that an AR-15 is involved, and you know exactly we will be hearing about “assault weapons” and the usual misinformation all over again.”

Not only that, but they are saying AR-15’s are capable of 3-shot bursts.

No, but FNC is reporting that officials are blasting high volume audio messages to “shelter in place” to those in the buildings
