Recently there was a shooting at the Washington Nationals stadium in DC. The shooting happened near the third base gate and fans were told to leave.
Nobody was killed, but there were two injuries and a lot of people were very upset about it. They wanted to go enjoy a game and instead they got swept up in somebody else’s drama with a shooting. It made headlines and folks were pretty scared.
A shooting has been reported outside of the Third Base Gate at Nationals Park.
Fans are encouraged to exit the ballpark via the CF and RF gates at this time.
We're working with law enforcement to provide more information as soon as it becomes available.

Why Did the Shooting Make Such a Big Splash?
This shooting made a big splash because it happened in a place where nobody expects it and because DC is a very liberal area. Therefore, folks assume that shootings are only things that happen to “other people.”
The fact that they came close to live gunfire in a place they didn’t expect rustled their liberal sensibilities.
This isn’t supposed to happen, not here! That’s the thing with violence and shootings: they’re not supposed to happen, but they still do. Conservative reporter Caleb Hull made an insightful comment on Twitter about this.
He said that liberals were going nuts over the shooting because it was in a “gentrified area” and that when it happens in the inner city they don’t “bat an eye.” Hull is 100% correct.
Olbermann the Liberal Idiot
Liberal host Keith Olbermann commented on Hull’s post saying he’s a “f—ing idiot,” telling him that the Second Amendment and right to own guns isn’t even real to start with.
This is apparently becoming a popular thing on the left since Talking Points Memo head Josh Marshall recently tweeted out the same thing.
These loons think “keep” doesn’t mean own and that 2A is made up. Yet, they call other people idiots?
You’re a fucking idiot; you know nothing about that area; and oh by the way the 2nd Amendment doesn’t include the word “own” or any synonym for it, so shove your condescension up your ass.

Remember Keith Olbermann?
Olbermann is a man who was so crazy on Russiagate that even the liberal media left him aside. He used to be on MSNBC railing against conservatives.
Then, Olbermann eventually migrated to YouTube where he became well-known for ranting about how Trump was a Russian agent and America was on the brink of total fascism.
This absolute clown has gone on from his failed conspiracy theories to being a big time liberal booster of Joe Biden and the vaccine. He’s now posting cringe-worthy videos about how wonderful the vaccine is and how evil and dangerous anyone is who doesn’t get it.
As for guns? He’s all about cracking down and keeping everyone “safe.”
His claim that Hull doesn’t know anything about the area is obviously a “street cred” attempt; meanwhile, Olbermann is saying that DC has a large minority population and crime rate.
Remind me, does that make Olbermann wise and compassionate or racist and stereotypical? Because it looks a lot like the second option, quite frankly.
