You know they will try to use this to get the Obamacare fiasco off the news. Knowing what I know about whose behind them I wouldn’t put it past them to have caused this. They’ll say guns are the problem, that’s what we need to be talking about…
With any luck the shooter will be a white protestant conservative, hopefully a vet, could they even hope for a tea partier…

In this aerial video frame grab provided by CBS-LA, fire and rescue personnel gather at Los Angeles International Airport on Nov. 1, 2013.
A gunman armed with an assault rifle entered a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport today, killed a TSA agent and wounded six other people before he was captured by police.
Th e shooting sent hundreds of passengers streaming out of the terminal with many fleeing onto the airport runway. Dozens of flights to and from the airport were delayed or cancelled. It also triggered a "tactical alert" for the Los Angeles Police Department.
The shooting began around 9:20 a.m. in the usually crowded terminal.
Police Chief Patrick Gannon said the shooter was armed with an assault rifle, blasted his way past airport screeners and "got back very far into the terminal."
Police "tracked him through the airport... and engaged him," Gannon said, eventually taking him into custody.
The FBI quickly took a lead role in the invesitgation.
Witnesses described the shooter as a young man, carrying a long-rifle and seemingly targeting TSA officers.
One of the shooting victims was a TSA officer who died of his wounds. Six others were injured and taken to nearby hospitals.
"One arrived in critical condition and two are listed in fair condition," a spokesman from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said in a statement.
Three other patients were taken to other hospitals.
The LAPD said it was on "tactical alert due to a major incident" at the airport and the fire department said they were assisting at a multi-patient incident.
Police said they believe there was only one gunman, but are sweeping the terminal and surrounding areas as a precaution.
An eyewitness, Leon Saryan, told ABC News Radio that a "fairly young" gunman with a rifle came down a corridor in Terminal 3 and shot perhaps 20 times.
A TSA officer holding Saryan's shoes was shot and wounded, he told ABC.
Saryan said the gunman asked him, "Are you TSA?"
