Not necessarily, MS-13 is very big in Alexandria.

I guess in a country full of guns, there's nutters possessing guns on both sides of the spectrum.

This exactly. I'm anti-violence even though I am so extremely opposed to many of the folks on the right. I don't want to see them hurt or killed. Whoever did this is not helping anyone's cause. It's fucked up.

But you can see that they are already trying to spin it for more guns with arguments like, "All we had to fight back against him were baseball bats," as if any of them would have been packing heat on the field with them. Rolleyes Whatever- I'm glad no one was killed, and I hope everyone recovers fully.

Quote:Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, speaking to reporters, said he heard a very loud shot and then a rapid succession of gunshots. He said that the man had dark hair and was wearing a blue shirt and jeans, and had a rifle.

“It was obviously a large gauge rifle,” he said, adding that people were hiding behind trees, getting on the ground or running. “Bullets were flying. He had a lot of ammo,” he said of the gunman.

I think it's all ghastly.

I don't care who was shot at, it was wrong.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: 6 shot on DC ballfield
The shooter was a member of many anti-Republican groups, and he actually walked up to two of the guys leaving the practice and asked what party the players were. They told him they were Republicans and the rest is history.

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".

Just another day in America. Scalise will in all likelihood be back in Congress robustly defending the right of people like his shooter to be able to buy a gun like candy.

Apparently the shooter was a Bernie Sanders volunteer. I'm telling you the Weathermen are back.
