Looks like the Hysterical Left has resorted to violence in the shooting today in Virginia
This is “rapidly evolving” and the police briefing was very short on facts.
1 shooter in custody. Some unknown number of police injured. 5 transported via ambulance. 1 congressman (Steve Scalise, Republican House Whip) in hospital and surgery, prognosis for full recovery ATM.
As it was a Republican practice and the shooter asked who was practicing, it is pretty clear it was partisan.
I’m very surprised that with the number of congress members involved they didn’t have stronger security. An interview with one of the congressmen (Ohio?) who was on the field where the shooting was happening, said many took shelter in the 1st base dugout and a security officer started shooting back (toward the 3rd base dugout) and that it “wasn’t a fair fight” when you have “pistols against a rifle”. Even local police now carry AR-15 rifles in their vehicles and high end security details have bullpup auto Personal Defense Weapons under their coats; so a few brave officers with pistols seems light to me. Then again, it was early in the news cycle and the perp got taken down fairly quickly, all things considered.
A “man on the street” interview with a person watching from a gym across from it all said the perp had an AK like rifle “with a curved magazine”.
Of course, the Democrats are already calling for “gun control” ( Virginia Governor said there were “93 million” lost to gun violence each day in America… did it a few times before being corrected to “93” no million…) and of course little Chucky Schumer the camera hound was in front of one as soon as possible. (I don’t know he ranted on gun control, but he always does. I changed the channel as soon as his face hit the screen…)
So look for The Usual demands that individual constitutional rights be removed. Never mind that it was an assault on Republicans from The Progressive Left.
Watch out for copy cat shootings, and probably a good time to avoid high profile behaviours and events.
Figuring one congressman, one shooter, and a couple of cops injured, that leaves one additional injured TBD.
