    Shots fired at US Capital

    http://www.komonews.com/news/nationa...226339521.html

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A police officer was reported injured after gunshots at the U.S. Capitol, police said Thursday while putting the entire complex on lockdown.

    "There are reports of injuries," said Terrance Gainer, the Senate's Sergeant at Arms.

    CNN Blitzed Wolf is a moron

    Sounds like a car chase ended near the WH, when the driver exited the cops may have shot at him - the shots fired.

    Great. More ammunition for gun grabbers.

    Other than that, expect more gun grabbers foaming at the mouth again.

    "Police are on the scene outside the U.S. Capitol after reports of multiple shots fired following a car chase.
    According to multiple news outlets, the incident started at the White House, where someone attempted to ram a gate. ABC is reporting a female suspect is reported dead."

    I'm glad no innocent bystanders were hurt or killed.
    That said, the logical solution to this is to ban all cars in the DC area. Because as we have now witnessed they can be used to ram gates. Except for Smart Cars because they are tiny, and when I see one more often then not it's a hot girl driving.

    Female suspect tried to ram the 15th Street White House barricade, then started moving toward the Capitol Building where she was intercepted by police. Shots were fired. She was taken into custody and the lockdown has been lifted. Suspect had a baby in the car. SS Officer injured by the attempt to ram the barricade, no one else other than the suspect injured. Press conference imminent.

    My guess was with the shut down, her Obama money dried up.

    Glad this turned out not to be a senseless shooting. Would've undoubtedly brought more proposed infringements against 2A.

    Of course CNN still has a mis-leading headline. I noticed FOX refrained from publishing a "Shots Fired" headline with obvious implications of a "shooter" until the real facts rolled in.

    I have been following this since the first broadcast. I have heard no media saying she had mental problems. Where did you hear that?

    It's coming

    Why so many police??? I thought things were shutting down in the gov.t'. ; With ALL the fabulous GUN Laws in D.C. ONE would think there would be less need for Police since it's illegal to own a gun there. That IS what the gun control morons want you to believe !! Is Marshal Law next ??
    I truly Love my Country, But the government scares the he!! out of me.

    DEMAND IT
    Congress SHALL NOT receive A salary greater than any service member and will be given EQUIVELANT insurance as any service member

    I came into this world kicking and screaming covered in someone else's blood. And if necessary to protect the Constitution of The United States of AMERICA. I will go out the same way

    Why would the gun grabbers say anything? The lady used her car to ram a barrier. It was the cops that did all the shooting, after all they are the only ones that should have them anyway.

    Where did all the shots go, where did the boolits go? Ya know if an air-shot is fired it's gonna kill a baby a mile away! Florida is even considering legalizing warning-air-shots!

    ETA: Will celebratory-air-shots be next?

    No, the next step will be "Desk pops".
