    My first suspects are the dancing Mossad agents.

    Well, as I said, this clearly doesnt involve guns, and somehow it probably demonstrates that more guns are needed. Sorry, not probably. Definitey. It definitely shows how gun control is bad. And guns arent related to any of this. Certainly not. And you just know Obama is behind this.

    I think maybe I'll turn on the radio and get information about the story now.

    If it was another terrorist attack on a U.S. military installation President Obama would have already declared it violence in the workplace and that Al Qaeda was on the run and was being decimated.

    Wait a minute, Obama was given a second chance and was re elected so he doesn't have to lie any more.

    Aren't the offices of the NCIS located there?

    in all seriousness, this is a sad day for the victims and families.

    at this time we do not know the motive of the shooter(s).

    I won't be sad if there are more shooters that the police just take them out. Would save the tax payers the cost of a lengthy trial.

    Done with your daily dose of sarcasm now?

    When an area is declared a Gun Free Zone, the only people who obey it are the good guys. Somehow, having a Navy Yard declared gun free sounds ridiculous. How did the stop the first one? Shot him. Throwing a book of rules at him probably wouldn't have had the same effect.

    I look forward to more vomit inducing gun control measures because of this.

    It's not an unreasonable conclusion to jump to.
    I have no real issue with the mind jumping to that. I think that's somewhat natural.

    I do have issues with people:

    1. Jumping to any conclussion in these type of situations and then arguing things as if that assumption was actually fact (Happens both with muslims and Tea Partiers given the circumstance at hand)

    2. The conclussions that some inevitably attempt to draw or infer OFF of the original conclussion. IE..."Hm, I think Muslims probably did this. This is why we must be distrusting and check out ALL muslims!" or "Hm, I think a Tea Partier probably did this. Just more evidence why Tea Partiers are racists that hate the government!"

    Also, I'm a horrible person because I heard this and the first thing MY brain went to were NCIS jokes...

    They don't look like happy campers over on MSNBC and CNN. It's being reporter that the shooter wasn't white and no Tea Party connection has been found.

    I agree. We have so many laws that makes robbing, killing, etc a crime. Doesn't really deter the bad guys.
