    They have experienced a tiny bit of the terror school children experience when gun fire erupts in school and colleges. Sometimes you have to experience it before you realize the seriousness.

    Thank God everyone is safe and now that this is over, Congress can go back to Not doing their job as usual.

    "The members of Team Graham, who are working during the government shutdown, are fine and accounted for."

    Love the way Miss Lindsay politicizes this ...

    CNN is still reporting "SHOTS FIRED".

    All other news sources are reporting that police chased and shot a female driver in her car. But, CNN is still trying to solicit the anti-gun crowd's reaction.

    @ThinkAgain Lindsey Graham is a male Senator from South Carolina. I doubt he would appreciate either your or your use of "Miss" to refer to him.

    Pretty sad that CNN doesn't even mention Tim Griffin's earlier tweet blaming the shooting on Democrats.

    I think you got that confused- that would have been Boehner's tweet.

    This lady most likely is angry about not having any daycare, rent do, car note do, and no food in the fridge. I pray Congress get on with it and help these poor broken people that they have held hostages. We really need to call a prayer day, you all, are all angry you cannot move forward in strife. Go and Pray all of you!!!

    If they shot her, how did they do it without firing shots?
