    Is it just me, or do these atrocities tend to happen on Fridays?

    well, the fallout from this isn't going to be good at all...

    did they ID the firearm yet?

    It says a cop took a round to his ballistic vest. Do police routinely wear level IV armor? Or was the POS using a handgun or shotgun?

    This is literally 10 minutes from my house.

    A guy I know works in public utilities. I pray he's alright.

    Workplace harassment to the point where he snapped I bet. It is a big setback for our pro-gun agenda, gives the lib MSM a boner.

    I hate the fact that when shit like this happens, I have to be worried about my rights in addition to being concerned for the victims.

    Thanks leftists, thanks a lot.

    No word yet on the weapon used, but it happened right down the street from police headquarters.

    Yeah. Sandy Hook and Vegas were on Friday, Pulse Saturday, Las Vegas on a Sunday. Seems mostly on the weekends.

    I've always wondered how many more suicides happen on Sundays and Monday's as opposed to other days of the week.

    It's likely that the responding police were coming from HQ, so Lvl 4 vests wouldn't be far away and it's not like it takes a long time to put on a plate carrier with Lvl 4 plates in it.

    They have released NO info on shooter identity....I think that rules out white guy, cuz they'd rush that info out. I'd love to be wrong, just seen how these things evolve...

    Funny story, as a kid our parents took us to Virginia beach. Back at school in September, when asked to draw a picture of what I did on summer vacation, I obliged but titled it vagina beach. If only...

    (My spelling hasnt gotten much better)

    what do you mean no word? Ask anyone in the news business, they already identified it as an "AR15" [sarcasm]

    We need to ban public workers. Even if it saves just one life.

    They are currently scrubbing his social media.

    What a terrible tragedy.

    I hate to admit it but I’m anxiously awaiting who the shooter was.

    His characteristics will determine any anti Second Amendment fallout.

    CNN just reported it was a semi-automatic pistol and a rifle. No word on the type of rifle but the anchor is desperately trying to confirm the type of rifle.

    Yes but Fox isn’t covering the shooting so I thought I’d check out the lunacy on CNN. Might be fake but imagine at least a handgun was involved anyway and “rifle” could mean just about any long gun although w 11 dead I’m betting it won’t be a bolt or lever action rifle.

    Turned Fox on at 8, wasn’t being covered, switched to CNN which is covering it nonstop. Fox has mentioned it briefly when I switched back but Tucker had a few segments & guests that had nothing to do w the shooting. He’s going on about UFO sightings now.

    From Fox News: 11 people killed in Virginia Beach shooting; suspect dead
    No job is worth getting that disgruntled over, least of all a city government job.
