.. now , another shooting at Fort Hood .

.. 3 dead , 13 or 14 wounded , including 5 or 6 critically …

.. thankfully or unfortunately , the cowardly murderer took his own life once he was cornered . At least he saves the taxpayers and the families a great deal of grief …

.. the first time , it was most definitely terrorism . Now , it is much too early to tell . It will take time to investigate . With the murderer Nidal Hasan , it became obvious very rapidly that it was terrorism …. and the ObamaCraps called it ” workplace violence ?? ” … no way …

.. the evidence will tell the story , folks . Just give the authorities time to investigate the situation ….

.. my prayers and best wishes are with the families of those who were killed and those who were injured …. pray for those folks who will take a very long time to recover …

.. more on this , later …

White House press secretary Jay Carney reiterated President Obama’s desire to pass gun control legislation, though he sounded cautious about appearing to use the Navy Yard shooting to political advantage.

“[I]t is far too early to say anything about who did this and the broader meaning of it,” Carney told reporters, per a live transcription. “When it comes to common sense legislation to reduce gun violence, the president has been very clear,” Carney added, recalling Obama’s frustration with congressional leaders who voted down a gun proposal in March.

The comments came under repeated questioning from American Urban Radio’s April Ryan.

“That was a shame and we will continue to work to take action to improve gun safety, to reduce gun violence in this country through executive action and, hopefully, Congress will work to reduce gun violence as well,” he said.

Ryan pressed him about gun control in a follow-up. “Jay, you say it’s far too early, and I understand that, but we do know for a fact that these were shooting deaths, and going down that seven: Fort Hood, Binghamton, Tuscon, Aurora, Oak Creek, Newtown, and the Navy Yard now.”

“And countless other deaths, as you know April, countless other deaths, and this is why we should take action to reduce gun violence, we should take common sense action supported by Americans from every part of the country,” Carney replied.

.. logo of Naval Sea Systems Cmnd …

who are there , just going about things and doing their normal business …

.. wake – up call , considering the close quarters in D.C. (near Nationals Park , less than a mile to the Capitol , about 2.5 miles to the White House complex) , and the tens of thousands of tourists , civilians , and others , going about their normal business , and , yet they hear about this ?? …

.. makes people think twice about security , including our nation ‘ s security , that more attention and resources should be devoted to it . politicians should pay more attention to the subjects …

[link] — wikipedia piece on the Navy Sea Systems Command , the probable location of  the shooting …

.. may God bless Those folks (our fellow citizens) many of whom devote their lives and careers to our nation ‘ s defense , and to their families , for the numerous sacrifices that that service entails …

.. D.C. is federal turf , especially the shooting is at a military installation , which is definitely federal ground , throw the book at them , include the death penalty (for the surviving scumbags , if any) …

.. Our Nation ‘ s Capital does not need to be an armed camp , yet we need to pay much more attention to security . A good number of those in that military facility were likely armed , and may well have helped to bring the scumbag down …

… Nats – Braves has been rescheduled … understandible … too close to the Yard , if I understand it right …
