Texas in the headline, NY in the first paragraph.

you can't explain that!


Maybe I can. from the middle of the article

"Alexis, 34, of New York, was a Navy aviation electrician's mate, third class, who spent time in Texas and Illinois. It was not immediately clear if he was still enlisted. "

BunkoSquad: Obscene_CNN: Seems like he entered the navy yard with a shot gun then "upgraded" his weapon by taking new ones from the people he killed.

"HE'S VIOLENT BECAUSE OF VIDEO GAMES"....COME ON DOWN!!!! YOU'RE THE NEXT CONTESTANT ON 'THE KNEE JERK REACTION TO TRAGEDY IS RIGHT'!!


You gotta admit. He was pretty good at headshots. Maybe someone grounded him from CoD?

Altitude5280: The Freepers are deeply disappointed that he is not a Muslim. But he is black, so they have THAT going for them.


he could be a secret muslim, like our black President.

Fuggin Bizzy: He is believed to have a criminal record there and to be a holder of a concealed carry weapon permit.

Way to go, Texas. 'tards.


Star Telegram says he was arrested for discharge of a firearm within a municipality, but never actually charged.  So no criminal record.

AngryDragon: vrax: AngryDragon: shower_in_my_socks: One man killed 12 people, just as the authors of the 2nd Amt intended. I eagerly await news of which well regulated militia he was member of so we can get to the bottom of this. The rest of the world thinks our gun laws and gun culture are crazy, and they are farking right.

Ironic that they don't let soldiers carry sidearms on a military installation isn't it?  The ultimate expression of a gun-free zone.

It's interesting that even the military sees the need for limits on when and where it's appropriate to carry weapons and yet people are fighting for the right to carry them everywhere out in public.

And this shows how effective this policy is.  It makes no sense that probably THE most trained force on the planet regarding firearms is not allowed to carry them.   It's a political decision not a common sense one.


Is it?  Who is the Navy trying to impress?

Obscene_CNN: He is from New York, so he didn't have a concealed weapons permit.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/09/16/active-shooter-at-washington-na vy -yard/


Well sure he lived in Texas most of his life. But he did visit NY before heading to DC, so "from NY" is technically correct.

vernonFL: FLMountainMan: I blame the gays.

The area around the Navy Yard used to be home to a few gay nightclubs, it really wasnt the best part of town. When they built the stadium the old nightclubs closed.


OMG it's worse than just gays -- it's gay ghosts!

Good old FoxNews. You can always count on them:


Although the motive was not yet known, the shooting brought to mind another mass shooting at a military base, on Nov. 5, 2009. That shooting, carried out by Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, an American-born Muslim who became a jihadist while in the military, left 13 dead and more than 30 injured.

Get that Muslim angle in there!
 
2013-09-16 04:49:42 PM
Thank heavens all the dead victims didn't have guns.  Can you imagine the level of carnage there would have been if anybody had been able to defend themselves in a manner consistent with any reasonable interpretation of the second amendment.  Just remember that when seconds count the police are always minutes away.

You know this because how?

You can't imagine non-political reasons they might like to know where every weapon on base is?

AngryDragon: The military should be the MOST competent and trusted with firearms.


They are, that's why they don't let people who aren't trained specifically for certain situations from carrying weapons around bases and other installations. MPs can carry guns around, because they're part of their job and also because they're trained not only in using them but in dealing with various circumstances that may arise. Someone who spends their days sitting at a desk doing paper work may have gone and qualified at the range by that doesn't mean they're trained as the MPs are in how to deal with things, like someone walking around with a gun on base.

I thought he picked up a weapon from an armed guard in this "gun-free zone."

T-Servo: Depends. I live a few blocks away, and the nearby Marine installations certainly are armed. Hell, there's a parking lot on L Street with a 24-hour two Marine standing watch at the entrance, armed with M4s or (more commonly) shotguns, and the Marine Barracks on 8th swarm with armed Marines.

But your typical sailor isn't like that.


Only the guards and MPs are armed. All the other weapons for each unit are locked in large arms rooms. If someone gets past them (which isn't very hard if you have ID) then there is really no one in their path.

I don't care if you're an OORAHMARINEOMGSMASH, you're not bullet proof or armed

He lived in NY 10 years ago. He was arrested for firing his gun and evicted from his Fort Worth apt in 2010. I have no idea why Fox News would consider him from NY now...

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Over/under on when the right wing derposphere will start claiming the guy is a registered Democrat...?


It is a Fark Progressives greatest dream that one of these incidents will have been  perpetrated by a straight, white,  middle aged, male, tea party/NRA member, Christian, registered GOP, pro-lifer, having something to do with either the coal or oil industry.  Failing that they will settle for a disgruntled  now ex-government employee because of sequestration.

Given that the perp is a black American male and given  that they tend to vote Democrat in the 95% or better range I think the odds are better than average that the perp is a Democrat if he is a member of any political party

What I can't understand is why a Black American male would feel the need to do this seeing how much that demographics  conditions have improved under this administration.

RedVentrue: WOW. A tragedy that plays into a lib political agenda? Whoda thunkit?

I feel your pain. It must suck to have facts and data consistently side with your opponents.

That must explain the liberal butt hurt
Andrew Joseph Stack - IRS Building attack : Posted his anti-business, anti-bush, anti-religion, anti-"big pharm", anti-capitalist manifesto online prior to committing murder.


James Von Brunn - Holocaust Museum Shooter: Registered Democrat, anti-Christian, 9/11 truther, hated the Bushes and raged about "the neo-cons"


James Chester Blanning - Aspen Co. bomber: Made bombs off gasoline and cell phone parts and came with notes warning of "mass death." and planted them in banks and an alleyway. His suicide note contained "Do not f*** with us or there will be mass death like we have all been part of over in that f***ing quicksand trap that rove and chaney's monkey bush put us into where so many of our soul mates and brothers died very horrible deaths."

"monkey bush"... an appopriate form of political speech, right zero supporters?


The Weathermen (Bill Ayers) - Friend of obama and murderer : Involved with 25 bombings, they intended to kill members of the military. In 2001 Bill Ayers said, "I don't regret setting bombs; I feel we didn't do enough."

Carol Anne Burger - Huffington Post killer : Stabbed her roommate 222 times with a screwdriver before she killed herself. Burger's last story for the HuffPO before she went down the memory hole? "Christian School Teacher Takes Female Students to Palin Rally." Yes, those Christians and Palin fans -- they're the ones you have to watch out for.


Amy Bishop - 2010 University of Alabama in Huntsville shooting: Obama-loving amy took a gun to work and murdered 3 of her coworkers and injured 3 more.


Bradley Neal Crowder - Manufactured firebombs then brought them to the Republican National Convention. Member of the left wing "Austin Affinity Group"

GRCooper: strykerman: yet another mass shooting in a "gun free" zone, in one of two major cities that had outright gun bans that the supreme court ruled thoroughly unconstitutional.  kudos to people who told us when guns are illegal, incidents like this wont happen...

You do know you're arguing FOR Federal gun control, right?


I laugh every time I see the "gun-free zones caused this!" argument. They just don't realize how stupid it is.
 
2013-09-16 04:52:07 PM

Debeo Summa Credo: FLMountainMan: Let's get to what's important - is he white or black?  Will he be liberal or conservative?  I've got my tu quoques ready to launch.

It doesn't matter, the gun haters will exploit this tragedy to push their anti-gun agenda just like they do everytime a crazy person with a gun kills dozens of innocent people.

When will the gun grabbers learn that the wake of any gun created tragedy is NEVER the time to suggest more gun control? Rather, it is a time to heal and reflect upon how a better armed populace could prevent such occurrences.

Of course, when we happen to have a month where a gun caused massacre doesn't happen, that isn't the time to suggest more gun control either, because hey what's your problem with guns? A bunch of school kids or office workers haven't been killed in a gun-dependent slaughter in like six weeks. Relax.


MOAR GUNS!

Seriously though, on behalf of the sane population I would just like to thank you. You and your fellow gun nuts have won the debate. We will never be able to control the amount of guns in this country, you have mad it an all or nothing scenario. We thank you for yet another mass shooting.

This is because the military, unlike the redneck, mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, gun-totin' rest of AMURICA practices gun control.

That's the most retarded thing I've ever read.  The military should be the MOST competent and trusted with firearms.  More evidence of the deranged idea that the firearm is the problem and not the capability of the carrier.


This was the Navy Yard, though.

Most Navy ratings don't require any firearms training or certifications.  So they not only don't have firearms (under most circumstances), but they also don't have the training for them.  Naval civilians, likewise, don't have any normal reason (or authorization) to carry firearms while on base.

And most bases prohibit concealed carry.

Thank goodness we have all these spy drones watching us, NSA eavesdropping and thousands of public/street cameras everywhere to spot these mass shooters before they strike.

In this case, police with guns were seconds away. The first thing he did was shoot the guy with the gun and take it. Gave him more ammo to kill innocent people.

I wouldn't go so far as to consider the Navy THE most trained force on the planet regarding firearms. I think most of them only fire them at basic training.
