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?

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:

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.

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

The FBI is quoted as saying that also.

Don't look like an assault type weapon to me but tha's just me.
The new MSM and anti gun definition of "assault weapon" is whatever you want it to be. :rolleyes:

I had a anti gunner tell me once that an "Assault weapon" was anything capable of killing more than one person without reloading. I replied, "So a single shot or double barrel shotgun with buckshot is potentially an assault weapon then? What about a blunderbuss from the Revolutionary war?" :rolleyes:

What? The guy didn't fill out a federal form and have a background check? :eek: But I thought universal background checks were supposed to be the cure for all this? That's what all the politicians on both sides are claiming. :rolleyes:

The MSM when doing a story never gets to the bottom line when interpreting a story like this. The bottom line, the guy was stopped when good guys with guns showed up.

Of course he would have failed the background check as a felon...of course that's only if the "authorities" sent the data to NICS.
