On Wednesday, a gunman opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing near Washington for a charity baseball game.

The attacker wounded at least 5 people, including house majority whip Steve Scalise, according to media reports. The gunman was armed with a rifle. He was shot before being taken into custody.

The shooter was identified as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials.

The attacker’s Facebook page allows to see that he is not a Trump supporter.

“I want to say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office.”

    That’s what you get when you demonize your political opponent and brand him as the reincarnation of Hitler. Some nutter will act on it. After all, if Hitler is bad, then killing Hitler is good, therefore you are doing a good thing by taking up arms and try to kill Hitler.

      if Trump will be killed will be a great day. He is an asshole, like liberals :D Maybe will be a civil war. Also an american civil war can be a good thing for the world :D

        Screw you.

          “El muerte”: in spanish “el muerte” is a bit strange. Exist “la muerte” or “el muerto”, but not “el muerte”. Can be a neologism. (this is not a nazi-grammar comment, but is your nickname so…)

            And i don’t speak spanish :D EDIT: searching with google is a slang. My bad :D

        I couldn’t care less if Trump were shot, but there is a whole building full of traitors that need to go first. Trumps just an idiot, but CONgress is full of traitors. The only ones that would cry over them is Israel.

        • RichardD

          The US legislature is full of bought and coerced Israel firsters whose Jew masters are diametrically opposed to America First and what Trump says that he wants to get accomplished.

            you are a low information racist idiot, the real powers are agnostic, ie the bilderberg group

          • RichardD

            Really? The Bilderbergs are Jew world order collaborators.

          • El Diablo

            Jews, Saudis, banks, a bit anyone with a lot of money.

            “You sound like an Infowars Jew funded commercial”

            It doesn’t make sense, Infowars totally support Trump as you do.

          • RichardD

            Not according to Kellyanne Conway who says all of the Infowars stories about turmoil and pending firings in the Trump Whitehouse are bs. Aka the lying Jew media.

  • RichardD

    I’ve received Zionist social media death threats much worse than what preceded this attack. It’s incidents like this, and the history of Zionism, that make me take them seriously. This shooter was a Jew supporter and the Jew cabal is trying to start a civil war in the US. These people are dangerous fanatics and a severe threat to US national security who are armed with nuclear weapons and who have substantially infiltrated and compromised the US security establishment and government.

      95% of the world’s Jews live in just 5 nations, the US, Israel, UK, France and Canada. The UNSC NATO P3, Israel, GCC Jew world order axis is a huge problem for humanity. The Talmud and Wahhabi cults are two peas in a pod.

    This reeks of an inside job. Some MK-Ultra shit like the Orlando shooting.

    My daily carry is a Kel-Tec P32 handgun pocket pistol without a holster using a pinky grip extension on a 7 round magazine in the well and 2 additional loaded 10 round extended magazines for reload. And a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 folding carbine in .40 S&W in a 9 inch by 17 inch soft case in my vehicle or a shoulder bag. With one loaded 10 round magazine in the well and 2 loaded 10 round magazines in the soft case mag holders. Using flat nose penetration rounds for anti material capability. For a total of 3 .32 and 3 .40 mags for 6 altogether. With a 50 round box of .32 APC and a 50 round box of .40 S&W in my 18 inch shoulder bag. I also have 30 round mags for the Sub 2000.

    I have much heavier weapons, but the above is my daily carry for my existing threat assessment. If I’d been at the ball park, I would have gone after the shooter if I thought that it would have been helpful. And wouldn’t have interfered with the 2 police officers in the congressman’s security detail. Who from the looks of it may have been out gunned, both of whom evidently got shot, with one being incapacitated, and the other returning fire while injured.

    At the distances involved, a Sub 2000 in .40 S&W with a 16 inch barrel, which is comparable in ballistics to a .44 magnum handgun, and with much better long range accuracy, would have been a much better match against the shooter than police hand guns. And with special forces, USMC, shooting academy and private security training. Depending on where I was when the shooting started, I might have been able to stop the shooter with fewer people being injured.
