There's a gunman holding at leat 8 people hostage on the 18th floor of The National Labor Relations highrise building in down town Phoenix right now.

Apparently it's been going on since about 4:00pm today. I saw news helicopters hovering over the building when I cam home from work about 6:00pm . I just watched the news, there isn't much information still at this point (9:00pm here).

Will update when I know anything else.

There is irony here somewhere. I am just too tired to find it right now.

Hope there is a happy ending.

Come on, only 8? You have an AR and some rope, put on that Arfkom T-shirt and go out there and get us on CNN! Be sure to yell 'In Before the Lock" when you swing through the windows.



I'm on my way...see you guys on the news.

Do you think I need more than 6 30rd mags?
