Police say 2 shooters have killed
4, injured 8 on grounds of
Washington Navy Yard

Washington Post, by Peter Hermann & Maggie Fazeli Fard

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 9/16/2013 11:00:51 AM

Police now believe two shooters, including one in fatigues, have killed four people and wounded eight others at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, throwing the region into fear and chaos during the morning commute. At least one of the shooters is “down,” police said mid-morning, but it was unclear whether that means the suspect has been arrested or shot. They said the other suspect remains at large, and police believe they have pinned down one between the third and fourth floors of one of the buildings on the installation in Southeast Washington. Police on the scene said at least

Are our active duty military who work here allowed to carry their guns, or have they been stripped of the ability to protect themselves and others?

I´ve seen reports of one shooter, two shooters, three shooters ... The only thing you can count on as accurate is shots fired and the general location. I pray no more are killed except perps.

Ugh. This could either be another Hassan or another one of Obama´s sons. Or just a jerk who thinks he shouldn´t have been disciplined.

In any case, I believe military installations like this are mostly "gun free zones".

Prayers for the victims and their families. So awful.

How is this possible? D.C. has very strict gun control laws.

Surely no one would violate gun control laws in order to shoot unarmed victims!

Someone has violated D.C.´s strict gun control laws in order to shoot victims who were unarmed because of the same gun control laws.

Clearly the only solution is to pass more gun control laws. We need more unarmed victims!

Some background info on the Navy Yard. Any federal worker with a federal govt ID can access the base; its general access such as to a food court. Individual buildings probably have additional security. I don´t know - I never tried to enter any of them. The security is not as heavy as some reporters have been describing: although a civilian just cannot walk or drive onto the base. Adjacent to the base is the headquarters of the federal Dept of Transportation which is just across from the Metro station, Navy Yard/Stadium. Just to the east of DOT HQ is the Nationals baseball stadium which you can access from the same metro station: either
entrance.

In years past, say a decade ago, the biggest worry in this neighborhood was general crime but the are has experienced a revitalization so it is not nearly rundown as it use to be. The historical Marine Barracks (Eighth and I) is also located in this area.

It´s fun to watch these firearms ignorant ´newsies´ tap dance around what to call the weapons used by the perps.
It started out a long gun, then a shotgun, then a rifle now it´s the most dangerous rifle in the entire world an AR15. It can kill anything on the continent and entire world.
The truth folks it´s a medium powered weapon with a 22 caliber round. Puny when compared to larger caliber firearms.
Stuttering Wolf Blitzer even covered the housing and who lives at the Navy Yard. WOW! I´m impressed.
I want to know if they are Obama´s people, black muslims.
Unarmed Military bases and gun free zones. It´s time to dismantle the military and turn it into pizza delivery for the UN.

So,you need ID and a security clearance to walk through the front door past the scanner and the TSA guy at the front door. What do you need to walk through the back door with a trash bin? What do you need to service the cafeteria?
More proof that all the scanners and uniformed, blue-gloved ´security´ personnel are just theater. Or a thinly veiled federal control force. Gun control? No. it is citizen-control.

Loaded weapons can not be carried by most military personnel at "peaceful" installations because a small percentage of military personnel are just plain careless with their weapons. You wouldn´t believe the number of both enlisted and officers who leave their small arms in phone booths, the chow hall, etc. and then have to report them lost.

That said, the government asks these people to be ready to lay down their lives at any time but refuses to give them ammo for their own safety. I would not serve again in the US military because today´s stupid PC rules needlessly get people killed in situations like this. Far better to have a few accidents or lost weapons than to leave our people helplessly unarmed during a terrorist attack.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.
