If this were in California, I’d say yes. They’d require Hazmat to clean up the lead from the weapons fire.

False flag operation for the purpose of identifying ex-military as not being worthy to have firearms!

Bowbama and gun violence! Can't or won't watch him on the tube. If there's a lie (ve) thread, I'll watch it.

DC Police chief saying they're looking for two more perps. One is dead and the other two are on the run. Probably escaped, since they were in some type of military uniform, with workers as they left the building(s).

Yep. He gave his obligatory 60 second acknowledgement of the “tragedy unfolding not far from here”....not he’s on prompter finding ways to work “I” and “we” into every sentence while simultaneously inferring the whole thing was Bush’s fault.

We...we...wee wee!

re:

http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/16/dhs-internal-report-navy-yard-shooting-has-no-known-connection-to-terrorism/

The internal report was sent out to law enforcement officials at 9:22 a.m. by the Intelligence Watch and Warning cell inside the National Operations Center (NOC) — a DHS group that operates as the “hub for domestic incident management, operations coordination, and situational awareness.”

Hence the airport shutdown.

Probably this crowd picked up my tweet re: misinformation earlier, (AR-15, simply stated, they should get an expert re: gun knowledge, not nasty, being uber ‘helpful’ in wording... I wouldn’t want them to look bad yada, yada). Of course I didn’t offer what’s actually issued (so they could push those).

http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/09/16/breaking-shooter-opens-fire-at-washington-navy-yard/

Maybe that’s why they went back to ‘long gun’ (deja vu).

I knew better.

At 11:57 AM Eastern I believe I was the first on FR to predict there was only one shooter. Now they're talking about two more, even describing them.

I had this "one shooter" feeling because the Fort Hood shooting came instantly to my mind....lone terrorist employee or fired employee already inside a military compound sounded more likely to me than a group of shooters coming from outside..

We'll see if my intuition was correct.

Agreed: the timing of this right after the gun grabbing dems lost big in CO is just too much to take as coincidence - especially when they were complaining their gun-ban efforts were being “chilled” by what the voters in CO did.

I'm going with the one shooter theory as well. It's so easy to have conflicting eyewitness reports... it'll take time to sort it all out. I think it's just another sudden Jihad Syndrome situation (aka Amish person).

The odds favor it being a lone shooter motivated by a domestic/work-related dispute.

We’ll see.

Mass murderers are typically loners that feel slighted somehow and are seeking revenge or recognition.

Yes, she's back in Virginia, thank goodness. She texted me, said her ambulance got back - that was about it. I'll have to wait until she gets off her shift to find out the details though. She gets off at 8:00.

Who was the guy who was found shot at the CVS & METRO station? Who shot him? How did he end up there? When was he shot? Was he in the Navy Yard and walked out after being shot? Did he die? They said he was shot in the face.
