Security guard shot at Family Research Council headquarters | The Daily Caller
these are the storys that aren't supposed to be reported.
(aren't guns illegal in DC)
Thank God there was a leftist shooting to try to distract us from the recent murders committed by righties.
LOL really. I'd say it's all pretty square in terms of the number of nutjobs.
Nutjobs do not know political affiliation..
Here here Darryl!!!
Agreed but that's not usually the way these things get spun...especially around here.
With all the culture of hatred and intolerance we see from the left on a non-stop basis, it's no wonder when something like this happens.
While it may very well turn out to be that this was a hate crime or domestic terrorism - it does seem that Fox is jumping the gun.
From the Fox story:

Some good advice from Slate:
The Family Research Council Shooting and "Hate Groups"
I'm also a little curious.....from what Fox reports, it was an issue of gay rights and/or gay marriage - why does that automatically equate "leftist" in the minds of posters here? Is that an acknowledgement that gays are not made to feel welcome in the "righties" world and therefore, would never be part of the conservative world? I believe there is a group of gay republicans, isn't there? I also believe that nutcases with guns can be, simply, nutcases with guns - and without political affiliation.
Patrad, Harry, WP, why your rush to make this guy a "leftie?"
I look forward to the liberals in here displaying the same amount of sanctimonious, self righteous outrage witch they would display if, say, it was a Planned Parenthood clinic that was under attack.
Really? And I looked forward to the conservatives in here displaying the same sort of sanctimonous, self righteous outrage which they displayed when ABC jumped the gun and said James Holmes might have had ties to The Tea Party without waiting for all the facts to be in.
Or when we jumped the gun and blamed the Giffords shooting on the Tea Party.
It's like we can't wait for the next crime so we pin it on the other side.
I guess its possible that this nut, Floyd Lee Corkins II disliked the FRC due to their liberal policies.... isn't it
I can't remember what side I'm on when it comes to nutjob terrorists shooting places up. All I know is that whatever the other side is, I'm very, VERY outraged at them!
Why and how some choose to rationalize the irrational is beyond inane.
I think you're jumping the gun, Mrs., by accusing the media of jumping the gun in this case. With the James Holmes shooting, Mrs., you had an atmosphere that wasn't political in nature. To take a shooting at a movie theater, Mrs., and attach it to the Tea Party was quite a stretch, Mrs., to say the least.
However, Mrs., in this case, the target was a political advocacy group - and a conservative one at that, Mrs.
Whoops! Turns out the shooter was an LGBT volunteer.
But nope, I'm sure this wasn't politically motivated, folks. Just because an LGBT volunteer with a Chick Fil-A bag in his hands shot up the building of a conservative Christian group is no reason at all to think it may have been politically motivated.

would a rational and sane person make the same choice Wolf?
How about a mostly rational and mostly sane person?
I'm just interested t see if the national coverage of this - as well as this forum's reaction - is equivalent to what we see when, say, a Planned Parenthood is attacked.
The guy is a p.o.s. and it sure looks politically motivated to me. If he had his way, there would certainly be some dead bodies in that building but fortunately his plans were stopped.
I think we should try him under one of those hate crimes liberals are always espousing.
But if it's a "righty" I"m sure that the situation is different right?
