“Shooter is contained but not yet in custody”—Fox. Fox hasn’t said anything about more than one shooter as of yet. NBC,
Wash Post etc are saying 2 or 3 shooters.

Hearken back to a discussion about the “trifecta”:

* a financial collapse or panic;
* race riots sparked by a high-profile incident;
* another mass casualty event involving guns.

Either all at once, or in rapid succession. And look what we have thus far:

* Precious metals took a dive in the spring;
* The GZ Trial saw protests, but few riots - but we have the massive uptick in black-on-white murder;
* And today’s festivities at the Navy Yard.

I'll wait until it's all over before I believe there was really multiple shooters.

But, if there were, this wasn't a "lone nut" or "workplace violence". This was a planned attack, for a specific purpose.

There have been several instances in the past with early reports of multiple shooters that turned out to be only one. I’ll wait for a more definitive report before thinking this is a coordinated attack.

If there are three of them, there must be some theme or believe uniting them. Could they be black muslim males?

What difference does it make?

What a dumb question posed by a CNN anchor...

“I don’t understand how the gunman got into the base...especially with a gun!”

If she had any common sense, she should have assumed he/they worked there and drove in showing an ID card.

Wow, from your link to the WaPo, their photo shows a cop on a Segway. Wouldn’t he be a sitting (standing) duck if he suddenly encountered one of the perps? Or is there a built-in machine gun?

The eastern border of the Navy Yard is 11th St SE. When it crosses the Anacostia River into MD it becomes MLK Blvd so I'm pretty sure this is TP (also /s).

Isn't the Washington Navy Yard in DC? Doesn't DC have some of the strictest gun laws in the country?

Isn't the obvious solution to pass more gun laws? < / sarcasm >
