NBC News is reporting that a gunman armed with an “AR15″ has shot at least seven people at the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington DC this morning. The military installation is located along the Anacostia River, near the Dept. of Transportation. Around 3,000 military and civilian personnel work at the Naval installation that builds, buys and maintains ships and submarines for the U.S. Navy.
As this is breaking news, not much is known about the perpetrator(s), their motive or what weapon(s) they may be using. NBC is reporting that the gunman “may be armed with an AR15″.
Keep in mind that often times early news reports are wildly inaccurate, as they were in Sandy Hook. The reports of an AR15 being used may or may not be accurate.
The one thing we can bet on is that Obama and his cronies will seize this opportunity to push for more federal gun control laws if any type of semi-automatic military look-a-like rifle was used. Ready those email clients and phones, we will need to make our voices heard yet again in defense of our rights.
