    What Dora and helenk3 said. My stomach turned upside down when I heard the news on the radio.
    Stay safe!

    11 Dead. Confirmed just now by VBPD. I guess the national news will catch up soon. I’m gobsmacked, while it was breaking on our local news, there was nothing on Fox, et al.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    13 now, including the shooter. Damn. I thought this would be an easy open thread, local news and all. Guess not. So sorry 😦

    So sorry for all the families of those killed and injured. As usual, twitter is full blown gun control, can’t even wait a decent interval. Glad you and your neighbors are safe.

    I’m sorry. I wasn’t worried about you because the grandkid is here, and he’s watching some anime thing on Netflix so I was oblivious. But I am glad to know you, the General, and Special Greg are all safe. ❤ When he goes to bed, I'll catch up on what's been going on.

    OMG, I just walked by the TV that was on FNC in my bedroom and saw the VA Beach shooting. I immediately thought Denise, OMG is Denise OK. Glad you and your neighbors are all safe!

  13. swanspirit says:

    Denise!! So glad you and yours are ok! All those people in the municipal building shot, it’s a mind numbing tragedy. Words are not coming. 💔

    Just got home from traversing the d.c. beltway. This had not hit the news/push notices before I left Virginia for Maryland and I listen to music commuting.

    Glad you and yours and the neighbors are fine. I just got a text from a colleague saying she and family are fine as are a couple other former coworkers.

    How is special Greg? I know he likes to watch some of the news channels.

    Sympathies to the community and especially those directly effected.

    I posted a link to AG Barr’s CBS interview on the last thread. If you haven’t already, you should watch or read the transcript. I really like this man.

    I couldn’t resist this tweet. . .

    Checking in to check on Denise. Relieved she’s safe!

  20. Island Girl says:

    Thought of you first thing Denise! Horrible!
    Today is the season of disgusting flying termites on Hawaii, threw some shit out, life is better. 🤗

  21. Dora says:

    My niece was there. She works for the EMS and was called to the scene. She didn’t have to deal with bloody gunshot victims, but rather others in the building who needed help. One man had a serious heart problem worsened by all the excitement. She got him out safely. The whole scene was chaotic, but she made it through alright.

    Here’s the latest.

    13 dead, including gunman, in shooting at Virginia Beach Municipal Center

  23. taw46 says:

    I don’t know if he really called her nasty, but if he did, he followed up with compliments. This will be awkward when he meets Harry, lol. Also, according to the article, the left has massive protests planned, busing in people from all over the UK.

    • lateblum says:

      Where does “the Left” get all its money? They seem to have access to buses everywhere. From Iowa to Britain – they are always busing people to protests or caucuses or the voting booth.

      • lyn says:

        Rich leftist bigots like Soros and Tom Steyer pay for it. There’s also another guy who made his money from Enron.

    • taw46 says:

      Brazil has strict gun laws and one of the highest murder rates in the world. Because the criminals have the guns. President Bolsonaro plans to allow more gun ownership for citizens to protect themselves, so naturally this POS travels to Brazil to interfere with their government.

    Lot’s of stuff all over twatter about LA being a disease ticking time bomb and now people from the Congo apprehended in Texas arousing Ebola fears. Imagine an outbreak in a homeless camp.
