    Piling On- VA Hospital Shooting In Chiraq Today

    Sounds like a false flag to me. The word is that the shooter is not a veteran.

    Dude, that's Chiraq. They shot and killed 8 and wounded 40 this weekend. That's down a few from the weekend before.

    Yeah..we had rain in the forecast and the thugs apparently don't like to get the inside of the 'ride wet when they roll the window down.

    The gun used in the VA hospital shooting was described as a "high powered rifle' in the nightly news show...the video of the LEO picking it up looked like it was a Mossberg 500. The shooter did not target anybody and laid down the gun when confronted.

    YEP their gun control efforts are definitely working !
    the guy is in big trouble now , he should know that he can't bring a gun into a Federal facility!
    If I am not wrong Security Guards at VA hospitals are not armed?
    either a poor shot or was trying for attention?

    true, plus the drive by car has problems with traction with all the temporary spares on it in the rain!

    The guards were armed and on the scene in a minute. It smacks of a false flag to me for sure. The shooter was babbling as he fired...where did the gun come from?

    Still not identified...they don't want anyone to know the guy's background:

    Here's the video that I saw...at 54 seconds you can see the gun. Doesn't look like any Modern Sporting Rifle I've seen:

    Last Thursday I called the VA office in Galesburg, IL. First thing the VA's robo machine asks is.

    "If this is a call about a medical emergency, hang up and dial 911."

    Then it asks,
    "If you are feeling suicidal, hang up and call the VA Suicide Hotline, at such & such number."

    I never did get to talk to a human.

    ^^ Just two choices? How unimaginative.

    And of course the article said it was an "assault rifle" in the very first sentence.
