The Amish drive SUVs now? Sorry...

I notice that Fox News initially included the word “black” in the description of the perp, now they’re just saying “a man” and “bald”.

Oh oh....they just described one of the SWAT vehicles as a “black armored vehicle”....that will not do!

What a quandry.

I guess the PC term is ‘African-American armored vehicle’ BUT this will upset a lot of people also.

Of course this is the same press that will call ANYTHING from a backhoe to a gradall to a pan a BULLDOZER....

Bulldozer is their ‘catchall’ much like AR15 for anything more powerful than a ‘Red Ryder’ or SUV for anything that is SAFER than an Electric Device for Transportation.

As far as I know you are right. The AR-15 designation is for civilian use and semiautomatic only. M-16 is military with full auto select.

Helicopters still pulling people off the roof.

If the shooter yelled, “Allahu Akhbar,” then it’s a case of workplace violence.

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.

-— 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.

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.

“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.
