While that may or may not be true I wish everyone would quit speculating until the facts come out. 

Does this apply to the alleged Russian collusion thing as well?

It's frustrating how the spin starts with a simple headline.  

CNN - Representative Scalise.

Fox - Republican Scalise.

Every. Damn. Time.

JFC.  Can you ### hats give it a half hour before you start with the political garbage.

People getting whipped into a political killing frenzy "to stop their agenda" is worth talking about.

Welcome to the FFA, hope your stay here will be an enjoyable one. There are refreshments in the back and nice 'welcome to the forums' gift for stopping by.

Shocking that all the comments at Foxnews are positive this is an attack from an Obama-Clinton crazy liberal with absolutely no info on the shooter.

 

After seeing this I went to Fox News to read their reports and saw absolutely nothing about narrative regarding the political affiliation of the shooter.

 

If you are speaking to the comments section, my only response is what does that have to do with Fox News other than being at their site?  I remember well a ton of irresponsible comments being made after the Giffords shooting.  Crazy seems to being running high in limited numbers on both sides of the political spectrum.

Scumbags using events like this to get in their pet political points is one of our most consistent traditions in the FFA.  Sadly, there are lots of opportunities these days.

Is that a quote or are you just making things up?

We don't know that this guy wasn't just a nut, like Jared Loughner.  Lots of people jumped to conclusions in that case too, and everybody who did ended up being wrong.  Why not just wait and let the facts come out?

50 shots and 5 hit, doesn't seem the shooter was very accurate.

I'm grateful that the shooters in these instances rarely seem to be well trained....

I think this place confirms most political message board posters are loonies

It's my actual quote.  I said that.

Oh, I get it now.

You're just a POS.

Have a super day, scumbag.

There's a lot of information trickling out on Twitter.  Gunman reportedly asked 'who's on the field, Republican or Democrats?'

Because there are far too many people who treat politics like a cult and are incapable of not seeing every single event in the world thru a political lens...

I heard 50-80 shots fired.  How is this allowed in this country?  

Reporting now that a lot of those were Capitol Police shooting the shooter.

Typically you go to a gun store or order via Amazon. I thought this was fairly well known?

What country are you in?

And here is your answer.  They view it like a sports match.  My guys vs your guys.  So dumb.

I'm currently on lockdown in a daycare about a block away. Standing in the hallway with kid.

Hope for the best for everyone involved.

Glad you're safe, GB.  Impressive on-the-scene FFA reporting, too.

Both titles are also carefully worded.  

Regardless, you said "the spin has started" or something to that effect. I don't see how a fact is spin.

I spent 8 years trying to get people to understand how ridiculous it is to blindly hate (Obama) or blindly love (Palin) just because of their political affiliation.  People didn't get it then, they don't get it now.

Herd mentality.  It's not much different than sports fandom - "hey that guy is a pos"... "oh, he signing with my team I'm sure he's reformed, great to have you!"

People don't care about right and wrong, they care about winning.

Man defends himself from dog attack.

Man kills beloved family pet.  

Both state the same thing.  A man killed a dog.
