If he is Christian he will be a “gun nut belonging to a right wing militia”. If he is Muslim it will be “workplace violence”

I work next door. The whole Navy Yard is shut down. Tons of police driving by and helicopters flying above. Was supposed to go over there this morning for a meeting - glad it was for later this morning.

Another Gun-Free zone in which the natural right of people to protect themselves has been usurped by the Government.

Washington Navy Yard is a military installation, you’d think there would be a few armed people there.

Our military is not allowed to carry loaded weapons on US soil, it might hurt someone’s feelings.

By all means we must enact stricter gun laws in the DC and surrounding area. Oh wait. They’ve already done that. Hmmm? I guess terry mcawful will have a new reason to violate the 2nd in Virginia once he gets elected. Maybe he and nannie bloomers can have a beer summit and the MAIGgots can start a new org..... GAG. Governors against guns. Or does that already exist?

Hemmer on phone with Capt. Chuck Nash, former US Navy.

Nash says no guns are allowed inside the building, except for security personnel — basically, a gun free zone.

WOW! that’s good to know. But we now have to assume that the shooter is unable to read English. [/s]

We interrupt this Free republic thread with breaking news... Ken Brockmann reporting--

As the search continues for the shooter at Washington Navy Yard... President Obama says, "Our original intent was to use a search pattern that would have been very smooth and disciplined and– linear– However, due to the Republicans normal evil attitude and obstancy, we may have to shut down the government and the search until my dear, dear friend Russian President Putin can offer up a policy we can all agree upon and implement."

Wasn't I in this same movie... back in the 60s?

Yeah, you were, you dumb schmuck... and you rode a atomic bomb!

And perky Katie Couric... showed off her new boobs, exclaiming, "I back the President 'cause I've found love again!"

Back to the Navy Yard search, to help ease recent immigrants into society, President Obama... has ordered them to help in the search even if they do not have any badges.

Now in private life, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered no comment on the Navy Yard search... saying it would not make any difference anyway.

And with this breaking news, Charlie Sheen confirms... that the shooter is not recently fired Selma Blair.

According to several sources, President Obama has broken his silence and confirms his complete support... for Ben Affleck as the new Batman.

We now return you to this Free Republic thread already in progress... this has been Ken Brockmann reporting.

1person pointed out on that feed that this is the METRO area, not Navy Yard. I could not believe the old yard looks like that.

Meanwhile, all kinds of news places are begging him to use this photo even though it’s bogus. Geesh. And we wonder why true urgent news is usually so wrong.

Not again! Prayers up!

But I have to say (post) publicly...how odd I find that photo. Civilians are helping the downed man; EMTs are no doubt racing to the scene, but some how that guy in the suit has yellow police tape? Just odd. Very odd.

Check replies. 1 person states it is near Metro station, but no one listens. I’m quite positive the old yard does not look that clean and cosmopolitan.
