There is a lot we still don’t know about today’s shooting on Capitol Hill, but early reports are that all shots fired came from police officers:

Sources: deceased female suspect shot by police after her car rammed cruiser. No evidence that she shot at officers. @nbcwashington

That hasn’t stopped many from attempting to place the blame on the NRA and Tea Party.
If the reports are true, all of these people apparently believe the Capitol Police and other responding officers are all Tea Partying, card-carrying members of the NRA:
The Capitol Hill shooter was arrested. No report yet if he is a card carrying teababgger… or just an ordinary #NRA fan hopped up on Beck

oh, and in case you wonder why I am absent over the next days, I am just busy and not been shot by an #NRA supporter yet. 🙂

According to reports, an officer was injured, but by the suspects car and not a gun.
More kneejerk lunacy:

Some simply choose to keep their eyes shut:
Well, we hope we’ve helped clear things up.
A question to ponder for those who need it:
So which is the #NRA’s fault? That the DC Police had guns, or that a car was used to crash a barricade?
