Think Obama will mention that his "other son" would look like Aaron Alexis?
The large mouthed idiot should!

Shooter took a shotgun into a no gun zone city (no constitution zone city) and into a high security no gun zone. There was a double gun ban where he did the shooting, where he took a guard's pistol and ar15

Well the shooter IS an out of work Obama supporter.
Maybe there was a pay-off?

"Tuesday, on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper," Michael Ritrovato spoke at length about his friend, suspected Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis.

After expressing his condolences to the victims and their families, Ritrovato then expressed his shock over the actions of a man he described as being "like a brother to me" and a "good-natured guy."
Ritrovato went on to explain that two of them had a close relationship based in part on their differences, specifically race and politics.

...Ritrovato described himself as conservative and Alexis is "more of a liberal type" who supported Barack Obama:
......Aaron wasn't conservative like I am.
He was more of a liberal type; ....... He was more happy with this [the Obama] administration -- as far as presidential administrations....."

I am not sure an AR15 was involved, there seems to be conflicting views. But it is generally said he took a pistol from a guard and possibly others, using others guns and his shotgun. So to prevent this do we disarm guards, and police so the gunman can not use others weapons?(Of course not.)
But now we have had two shooting cases on military reservations without armed military personal, interesting.

There are no conflicting views about an AR-15 being used.
The shooter brought a shotgun and took handguns from the cops he shot.

The party-line 80 page gun ban document that was handed out to Democrat politicians and the MSM was scripted for an AR-15 event.

They blew their propaganda all over their shoes.
Pitiful sight, but colorful though.

By the way, the shooter was an unemployed Obama supporter.

"‘If We Had the Ammunition, We Could’ve Cleared that Building,’ Son at Navy Yard Told Dad
September 17, 2013 - 5:24 PM

In the wake of the horrific shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, one individual made an interesting point about yesterday's mass shooting at the Navy Yard in the nation's capital:

"I know a lot of people are concerned about guns these days, but you know if everybody had arms, then there wouldn't be these problems.

"My son was at Marine Barracks -- at the Navy Yard yesterday - and they had weapons with them, but they didn't have ammunition.
And they said,'We were trained, and if we had the ammunition, we could've cleared that building.'

Only three people had been shot at that time, and they could've stopped the rest of it."

As far as I can see -- it hasn't revived anything. Only the same old tired arguments from people who hate the fact that someone owns something they hate.

They remind me of cat lovers who would seek to ban dogs. They just don't get that some people actually enjoy their right to own a dog.
