Our Capitol is Turning into Tombstone
shooting at the US Capitol earlier this afternoon that placed the entire Hill on lockdown. The shots originated at the Capitol Visitor's Center and one policeman suffered a minor injury while the shooter has been apprehended.
You have to wonder how many Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats (hereafter referred to as NRA fucksticks) on Capitol Hill right now are honestly thinking to themselves that this mayhem is all worth it to protect our second amendment rights.
So, go ahead, Trump, go look at your fucking fine print. I'm sure that bringing guns to the RNC convention in Cleveland will prove to be a corker of an idea. What could possibly go wrong?
Note how far down the Capitol shooting is right now on Twitter. Someone fires shots near the Capitol Building and it barely cracks the top ten. What does that say about our country when perhaps the most accurate barometer of the nation's mood and thoughts after shots are fired within the seat of our federal government shows we can barely notice it?
It's as if we're, I dunno, used to this.
(Addendum: Actually that was a bad analogy. Why? What's the difference between our Capitol and 19th century Tombstone?
Tombstone actually had gun control laws.)
Yell, "Allahu akhbar,"- terrorist. Yell, "I'm a prophet of God", patriot exercising his rights. #Capitol https://t.co/2jJcbzULnF …— Robert Crawford (@jurassicpork59) March 28, 2016
