Well, it looks like Cantor’s office may not have been the intended target… indeed, based upon the trajectory of the bullet, it looks probable that there was no intended target to begin with… just some redneck in gun-happy Virginia squeezing off a few rounds into the sky to celebrate… well, whatever the fuck rednecks celebrate in Virginia this time of year:
Police said a first floor window was struck by a bullet at around 1 a.m. on Tuesday. The building was not occupied, police said. A preliminary investigation determined that a bullet was fired into the air and struck the window at a downward direction, landing about a foot from the window. The bullet had enough force to break the windowpane but not penetrate the window blinds, according to a news release.
There are no suspects, Gene Lepley, a spokesman for the department, said.
So sorry, GOP me-too victims, you’ll need to try a little harder next time if you want to show that Democrats are just as awful as you.
