    Agreed. I was being sarcastic. I am also impressed by how much the response improved when Hillary didn't have to be consulted, as was the case in Benghazi. Has Susan Rice come out to blame a YouTube video yet?

    A 50-year-old Navy employee whose employment status had recently changed has been identified as the deceased gunman, ABC News reported.

    Re: Active gunmen in US navy Yard

    Despite all the speculation in the media coverage about the terrible tragedy at the Washington Navy Yard, the following are among the only facts known so far:

    1. There were casualties, both injuries and deaths
    2. A suspected gunman was killed

    Whether any other persons were involved in the shootings and the possible motive or motives are unknown.

    In any case, my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this shooting, along with their families.

    3) Guns and availability of guns have absolutely nothing to do with this, except for the fact that this could have been prevented by more guns.

    mmmmm....Sad situation....MSNBC is now reporting that someone gained entry using a stolen badge, so reports of who did it are still unclear.

    Those are also my sentiments. We have to wait and see what the investigation reveals. There's a lot of speculation right now.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Active gunmen in US navy Yard [W:69, 700]This is a specific topic to discussing the breaking news that is occuring. This is now the second post you've made that doesn't actually deal with, talk about, or debate the topic directly but is simply throwing out baiting one liners in a trolling fashion. It needs to stop, now.

    I think it is more likely to be one of those Christians you here so much about. I understand there are lots of them in the U.S.

    There is even a possibility, outside possibility I admit, that it is some crazy person that has no strong religious affiliation.
    geesh.



    How many incidents of gunmen shooting at multiple victims has happened in the U.S. ober that last 10 years?
    How many of the perpatrators have been Muslim?
