Appears that a car smashed into the barrier. Two people are on stretchers. Can’t see whether it’s an officer or civilian pic.twitter.com/Ud5WYGyKFu— Jacqui Heinrich (@JacquiHeinrich) April 2, 2021

Well it’s not the Q-Anon Shaman; if it was him, it would be the sound of a spear tip clanging off the concrete sidewalk and the crowd of fraternity brothers behind him yelling “CHUG! CHUG! CHUG!”

Fence stays, NG stays, untrustworthy citizens must surrender their firearms. If it saves one life. Meanwhile the CV19 death toll approaches 560,000. Depending on the certificate of death “cause” box.

I remember there was a shot fired outside the WH less than a minute into one of Trump’s press conferences. They had to pull him back into the interior away from the windows. Many at the time said it was all an overreaction.

Gunfire in DC was never an excuse to lock down the entire Capitol before. Seems to me, just from observation, gunfire in DC is pretty common. Except, none of the Jan 6 protesters fired a gun even though at least one was shot dead. By the police.

One would think that fencing and the presence of the National Guard would be sufficient.

Probably someone trying to steal somebody else’s valuable Lil Nas 666 Satanic LGBT Nikes that came out this week during The Season of Lent.

DC is no longer safe for our ruling class. I propose they be moved to a safer location, somewhere out in the asteroid belt maybe. We can work out how to keep them supplied at a later date.

That was the sound of Joe Biden falling down the White House stairs, not guns. Hope they don’t shut down the city every time he falls
