Terrorist Attack in Washington D.C.

BREAKING: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and Aides SHOT, Lawmaker Asked, “Are Those Republicans or Democrats?”

According to both congressional and law enforcement sources, the shooting appears to be a “deliberate attack.” Alexandria police said earlier Wednesday they were responding to a “multiple shooting” in the city. The tweet also said the suspect is in custody “and not a threat.” CNN has reached out to Capitol Hill police for details.
Brooks said there were a number of congressmen and congressional staffers lying on the ground, and at least one of them was wounded. The Alabama Republican said he used his belt as a tourniquet to help one of the victims.
ISIS will not be claiming responsibility for this.
UPDATE:

The shooting went on for roughly 10 minutes, with some accounts putting the number of shots fired around 100. Four people were injured, including two Capitol Hill police officers and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana. The suspect was also shot.

“The only reason why any of us walked out of this thing, by the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. We were inside the backstop and if we didn’t have that cover by a brave person who stood up and took a shot themselves, we would not have gotten out of there and every one of us would have been hit — every single one of us,” said Bishop. “He was coming around the fence line and he was looking for all of us who had found cover in different spots. But if we didn’t have return fire right there, he would have come up to each one of us and shot us point-blank.”

    I think everyone can see this for what it is.

    A very ugly inevitability is now self-evident.

  2. MadBrad says:

    100 rounds shot. 4 casualties, one of the was the gunman.

    The Civil War that will soon be upon us will not go well for them.

    I will say that most people who bought guns and ammunition during the last eight years did so to defend themselves from acts like this. Many of us thought the hatred being ginned up for the Republicans, whites, and Christians would ultimately end in violence. Now we see we may have been right.

    This shooter was not well trained in the use of his rifle. Evidence of that is that he encountered a crowd standing on a flat field, had the advantage of surprise, fired dozens of rounds and mostly missed. The range was short – inside a baseball diamond. The security people took him down – most likely with handguns.

    If you have a defensive firearm train with it. It will give you an advantage over people like this shooter.

    Just heard in my place of employment…

    “Well if you do any research on Steve Scalise you will see that he’s a White Supremacist”.

    I think your headline is accurate, MadBrad. If Timothy McVeigh was a domestic terrorist (yes, he was) then so was this dumb shit.
