    I don’t mean this to be tasteless, but why does it seem when Obama’s shit is hitting the fan, there are guns fired somewhere and that becomes the shiny object to look at.

    • Determined

      Because we as a nation have too many guns and too many people with mental issues and too many people who think that shooting other people is a solution to their issues/problems.
      Because we have shootings every day. Every hour.

      • redrick

        Agreed and far to many of those with mental issues and guns vote democrat

        • modera8

          Ironically, the Democrats are the ones who want to get rid of the guns. Perhaps you should reconsider your opinion.

          • Amy

            Disarming all registered Democrats would be a good start.

          • modera8

            “A good start” on what? Your comment doesn’t even make sense, Amy. No one was talking about starting anything. Forcing all registered Republicans to learn proper English and not reproduce with immediate family members might be a good start on our way to a less embarrassing U.S. population.

          • trixiewoobeans

            What an elitist snob. Make up your mind! Are they “rich white Republicans” or trailer trash? Seems you phonies just pull a name out of a hat to slander people to fit your narrow worldview and stunted opinions. Freakin’ troll, who’s paying you, you small-souled cretin?

          • Jay Stevens

            Down vote, several if I could, but Disqus only allows one:
            1. Amy’s comment was perfectly grammatical and in context, made sense. That is two downvotes if I could.
            2. “Forcing all …” I won’t count that even though I have seen much more incoherence from liberal commenters here.
            3. “… and not reproduce …” is both needless and unfounded. I find it amusingly ironic that all the organized, kinky sexual organizations are liberal in nature. That is another downvote if I could.
            4. As far as “a less embarrassing U. S. population” is concerned, I have seen more idiocy from the liberal side of the spectrum.

          • Clete Torres ✓ᵈⁱˢᵍʳᵒⁿⁱᶠⁱᵉᵈ

            Your post elucidates the primary reason why it’d advantageous to start the process with liberals.

            And for the record, intermarriage between family members is far more common in Europe, Africa and the Middle East than America. But your revisionist history probably doesn’t cover that, does it?

          • Amy

            Even George Zimmerman, for all the Zimmerman-haters out there, was (and still is) a registered Democrat. He’d probably be dead today if he hadn’t had a gun that night, but Saint Trayvon would be alive.

          • modera8

            Zimmerman was defending himself when he killed Martin. What the hell does that have to do with anything? Why do you call Zimmerman by his last name but Martin by his first? Brainwashed?

          • Jay Stevens

            Sigh. Downvote again.

            What does the reference to Zimmerman have to do with “anything”? Again, context. Amy was replying to redrick about Democratic shooters. And that was in the context of disarming Democratic shooters.

            Amy wrote, “Even George Zimmerman, …” (full name, unless she edited her reply. And even if she did edit her reply, so what? Most of the MSM referred to George Zimmerman by his last name (dehumanizes him) and Trayvon Martin by either his full name or just his first name (personalizes him).

            If Amy did refer to Zimmerman by only his last name like most of the media did, the media must also be brainwashed. Yes?

          • Amy

            No, I didn’t edit my comment, Jay Stevens. I referred to George Zimmerman as George Zimmerman in the first instance, for clarity’s sake, and then as Zimmerman thereafter. I referred to Trayvon as Trayvon because that seems to be the media’s and his supporters’ preferred way of referring to him. See “Justice4Trayvon,” “We Are All Trayvon”. etc. No offense was intended — Mod was just determined to take it anyway.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™ ✓ certified

            I call GZ, GZ… and Martin is Tray-Tray™. Be careful, use of his name could result in copyright infringement.

          • http://ondina.co/ Marco Ceppi

            Yeah, but it borders Virginia which is far more gun liberal. It’s pretty easy to go in to DC from a bordering state with guns.

          • Amy

            It’s illegal to do that.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™✓SAP

            Isn’t that something along the lines of transporting ‘contraband’ across state lines?

          • http://BeltwayWatchdogs.com John Turner

            And – ONLY law abiding citizens care if it’s illegal. Criminals DON’T CARE! They will be the only people in possession of guns in an area where guns are outlawed. How is it liberals can’t get that simple fact?

          • Amy

            They think if we make it MORE illegal, then people who have not the slightest inclination to obey our existing laws will obey THAT one.

          • Amy

            Yeah, people do things that are illegal. That’s no reason to punish all the people who DIDN’T do anything that was illegal.

            I mean, rape is illegal. Some men still rape women, but the vast majority do not. No-one’s proposing we react to an illegal rape by cutting off the willies of all those men who HAVEN’T raped anyone.

        We have democrats willing to fall on their sword for their beloved leader. They lie, retire and live in martyrdom. Some are willing to die for their cause. We don’t have enough guns and training for the law abiding citizens of the country.

      • Holly Smith

        So far, the only definitive shooting was by the police and not the woman. It is too early to jump to the conclusions that you have. At this point, it doesn’t sound like the typical mass shooter.

      • Johnny

        Please keep in mind this incident did not start as a gun related incident but as a car ramming the WH gates……Cars are far more dangerous as projectile weapons than guns. They are much more proliferated and one does not have to have a background check in order to buy one. Cars operated by people cause much more damage and kill more people on a daily basis than guns do…….So before we look at the instrument, lets look at the operator…….

        Guess what skippy? When the mentally ill were institutionalized and/or getting treatment that they needed, incidents like this were RARE.

        You liberals just love blaming the gun, the NRA, the TEA Party, everyone but the true cause of the problem: liberals. Yes, liberals, who, through the ACLU, saw to it that the mentally ill that need help, or need to be institutionalized, are cut loose, and out in public, to both fend for themselves with limited ability and success, and to cause these types of incidents. How many recent high-profile incidents were committed by the mentally ill? Go ahead and count them up. We’ll wait.

    • Last Word

      The government Shutdown wasn’t President Obama’s fault. Last time I checked Congress was responsible for passing the bill to Obama, that never happened so a shutdown occurred.

      • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        The republican controlled House passed multiple bills. It was the democrat controlled Senate that refused to pass any of them. Obama has also said more than once, even if the house passed bills were to pass the Senate he would veto them. That being said, had the, again, democrat controlled Senate bothered to pass a budget this year, the CR wouldn’t have ever happened and Obamacare would have been fully funded. So yea…..Obama’s fault. Sorry.

        • Last Word

          The republicans are trying to revise ACA something that’s already law and 60+% of Americans are in favor of the ACA. The Republicans are still trying to pass revisions and yes Obama along with the senate will not agree with that. Perhaps the republicans should remember why they’re in office and that’s to serve the people. 72% of Americans OPPOSED of a shutdown over ACA.

          The republicans continue to hold America hostage simply because THEY cannot have their way. The blame goes to the small group of ruthless republicans who fail to listen to the majority.

          • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            No dear, current polls show that 60+% of American are actually against ACA. Using polls from 2009 are a bit irrelevant. Another problem….the current form the ACA has taken is not the one passed by Congress without a republican vote and is not the one ruled on by the Supreme Court. Obama has changed the law to his whim, 17 times, I believe it is. I would certainly think a “man of the people” like Obama (and no, I wasn’t actually able to type that with a straight face) who would give big business a delay in their mandate would certainly extend the same concession to the American people. Finally, none of this would be happening at all if the democrat controlled Senate would have done their job and passed a budget. Those is the house fighting against this horrible, job killing law were voted into to office based on their promise that they would do whatever they possibly can to get rid of ACA, meaning they ARE serving the people who sent them there. As far as your last paragraph and “listening to the majority”, guess what? The United States is not a straight up, majority rule democracy.

          • Last Word

            Where’s the link showing 60% are against ACA? There’s also live video footage from Jimmy Kimmel show where random people saying their against Obama care yet for ACA, so the folks saying that don’t even know the what the hell their talking about, they just automatically siding against Obama because he’s a Black leader. Again we have a SMALL group of ruthless racist republicans holding American hostage. Fully 72 percent of Americans disapprove ofshutting down the federal government over differences on the Affordable Care Act. http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2013/09/30/new-poll-only-one-third-of-americans-support-repealing-defunding-or-delaying-obamacare/

          • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Ok, so on one hand, people are stupid and don’t know the difference between Obamacare and Affordable Care Act (which obviously, there is none) yet they are fully able to understand why the government is shut down and how that came about. Really? I would then refer you to Obama voters, very excited to vote for Obama (and really, it was probably on Kimmel too, just don’t remember where I saw it) who, when the question was presented in a certain way, were super excited to vote for Obama and his wonderful, black VP nominee Paul Ryan, while saying they would never vote for Joe Biden because he’s a racist. By the way, would you care to address any of the other points in my post, other than the 1st 2 sentences?

      • Determined

        Actually, Park Police were affected by the Sequestration and many officers and staff had to take furlough days. I would not be surprised if they were also affected by the current Government Shutdown.

        • 1NonPermissive

          Steve worships the government.

        • JBDestiny

          Actually, Steve, the Park Police are being called back, because the WH considers it essential for them to keep “the masses,” especially elderly vets in wheelchairs, away from the open air, 24/7 monuments that were never closed in prior shutdowns. Also actually, if the Capitol police are “affected” by the current shutdown, you can bet your buddies in the media would have been shrieking it from the rafters before now.

        Doesn’t last anywhere near as long though, and much fewer casualties.

      • pwndog3

        yeah but they have more legal guns down there so if someone does start shooting a lot more people will react and save people getting shot at

      • JBDestiny

        Hate to say this, but Steve the Broken Clock is correct as far as he
        goes, which isn’t far enough. The rest of it is that their targets are

        No, but they get mowed down by 20 or so law abiding good Samaritan citizens.

    I am sure a fake FB account is being set up that will identify the perpetrator as a rabid conservative.

    I hate that I have become so jaded by Washington and our leaders that one of my first thoughts is that this is a set up by some progressive operatives to try and make conservatives look bad.

      • Amy

        Just a propos nothing, I checked the voter registration rolls out of Tallahassee a few weeks ago. He’s still a registered Democrat. Not the brightest spark out there.

        • QueenB ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          To be fair, I’m sure changing his voter registration isn’t exactly high on his list of things to worry about.

          • Ryan Johnson

            ha, that’s what I’d just said.

        • Ryan Johnson

          HA! THAT is amusing. Well, he might still be a registered Democrat on paper, but it’s not as important to deregister considering his life is on the line and all that. So when it’s time to vote he might remember it was democrats who wanted his head.

          I NEVER wanted to side with Zimmerman, and I still don’t side with him, but the crap that comes from the Dem side of this whole thing makes it difficult not to.

          • Amy

            Yeah, he’s never been a very sympathetic figure. But like you, I do sympathize with him over the fact that his own party decided to try to lynch him to appease an angry, racist mob. No one deserves that… even registered Democrats.

            Agreed.

      Since they keep referring to the woman the cops shot dead as “the shooter”, I think they’re gonna hope she actually had a gun, and fired it at least once. Otherwise there’s gonna be a lot of egg on a lot of faces.

      • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

        She had a gun, weather it was there or not.

            I’d rather they use the passive tense than assume facts and get it wrong.

          • Amy

            Then why were they also calling her “the shooter” and “the shooting suspect”?

          • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

            I presume, as per their usual custom, the media outlets were jumping to conclusions without any evidence.

          • Amy

            Yep. I should have learned by now. Next time there’s “breaking news” having anything to do with guns, I’m just going to tune out for a few hours until the media get their act together.

          • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

            That’s why during the Gulf War, I watched FoxNews to see what was actually happening, turned to CBS to see how badly we were loosing. True to form, CBS was reporting on flat tires and breakdowns in the fastest blitzkrieg in history.

      Yet, these same “news” companies are the ones calling her a “female shooter.”

      You can’t be a shooter if you didn’t shoot.

      • Marc Vellat

        Perhaps she had a sinister-looking Pop-Tart on the front seat.

  • Jeff Dyer

    Does everyone believe this outright? To Hoosierdaddy’s point, every time Obama is under the magnifying glass, something happens involving “firearms”. And to Steven’s comment “too many guns and too many people with mental issues”, I disagree with the former and agree with the latter. We the People don’t have too many guns. The DHS does. It is our God-given right and our Second Amendment Right to defend ourselves, especially against this administration who is trying to take complete control of everyone in this country. Us “sane” people will not let that happen. The real news should be focused on what we the people are going to do about the tyrant and his co-conspirators. So, I wouldn’t be real quick to believe this is some random act of violence.

    • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

      Lowest common denominators. Some one uses a gun wrong and the majority of people have to pay with loss of gun rights. 10% of the population doesn’t have health care so everyone else must have theirs changed. It goes on and on and on. The minority is now controlling the outcome for the majority. I just want my country the way it was when it worked.

    Actually, this appears to have been a traffic incident … gone terribly awry. Female suspect may have accidentally “rammed” barriers (and police car?) – then was pursued by S.S. – and killed by S.S. – no indication so far that she was armed – all shots fired may have been from S.S.
