Politician and Aides Shot in Virginia
Breaking: 'Top Republican hit' in multiple shooting

From the article:
Quote:... Majority Whip Steve Scalise and aides have been hit by gunfire.

Senator Mike Lee, a Utah Republican, texted Fox News to say that Mr Scalise had been shot in the hip and would survive.

Mr Lee said the shooter had used a long gun and was dead.

More to come...

*update*

Shooter appeared to be a "chubby, middle-aged white male".

Nobody wants to see the innocent people being hurt......


But hey, if you throw in some lawyers and a few used car salesmen, it couldn't be all bad, huh???

6 shot on DC ballfield
House whip Steve Scalise is shot but in stable condition. The gunman is in custody. Someone had them staked out - they always practiced at that ball diamond.

Looks like the targets were all republicans. Not certain if the gunman knew that or ... maybe that was the point. Dodgy

Should find out soon.

Threads merged.

This is a very bad thing to happen, both for itself and because of its possible use as a rationale for more antidemocratic moves by the administration.

False flag?

Too early to tell. I doubt it. Certainly something that will be able to be twisted, though.

Let's see:

Congress critters vote to
* take away health insurance from 23 million people (but they and their families enjoy cadillac plans) AND
* reduce much-needed social safety net protections (SNAP, Medicaid, Social Security) AND
* give tax breaks to the top .01% (repeal estate tax) AND
* make it easier for mentally unstable people to obtain guns AND ...

You get the picture.
What could possibly go wrong ...

Yes, violence is not the answer but really, is anyone surprised that desperate individuals with little-to-nothing to lose are resorting to 2nd amendment solutions?
It was just a matter of time.

By the way, this is how The Handmaid's Tale starts.

Sad

I fear we will see more of this if they push people too far.
And I worry about the ramifications. Will this lead to reduced access to our elected officials?

The whole thing is no bueno.

There may be some truth in what you say, but we cannot afford to be hasty. Could be domestic terrorism, could be a personal grudge, could just be another whackjob like the one that shot Gabby Giffords.

We just don't know yet.
