The Washington Post reports that someone took a few pot-shots at a building on the campus of the National Security Agency at Ft. Meade, Maryland. A spokesperson for the Park Police, who were investigating the incident, “found evidence of multiple shots hitting a wall of a building.” No injuries were reported and, as usual, the NSA has been mum on the incident . . .

Maryland has some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation; although residents may obtain a Maryland “wear and carry permit“, they must go through a very stringent application process, including supplying a “good and substantial reason” for wanting to carry a firearm. This last provision means that such licenses are issued only rarely, and then mostly to the wealthy and politically-connected. Indeed, a permit is required simply to purchase a handgun in the first place.

In this case, however, the laws do not appear to have any impact in stopping a determined shooter. As usual, members of the civilian disarmament industrial complex have had no comment on the failure of the laws they advocate as the solution to “gun violence.”

  1. Hey it could just be a spook target practicing. Funny but my son works for another covert agency in Maryland. But he told me only the Po-leece and military should carry guns.

    • Like the IRS? I figured they’d be the first to get shot up, considering the extreme number of people they piss of annually.

  2. I would bet every last cent that the person(s) who fired those shots did not possess Maryland permits to carry.

  3. We all know it was some OFWG Tea Party Gun Owner. This is why we need to ban guns from the serfs.

    • No – “Tea Baggers” that’s the phrase they use today. Because self sufficiency, self reliance, and individualism is “extremist” talk.

  4. Could it have been a handful of bullets skipping over a backstop on the qualification range? After all, even 9MM M892 ball will travel upwards of 2,000 yards, and 5.56MM NATO over 3,500.

    • Being fired out of BLACK, fully Automatic AR-15’s and handguns with high capacity clips,using Armour piercing bullets.
