Shooting Near New Hampshire Polling Station; One Dead, Two Wounded

Apparently up in Pittsburgh, New Hampshire (a town fairly near Canada), there was a shooting at the local polls. Initial reports say one dead, two wounded.

(Hat tip: Gateway Pundit)

I have absolutely NO direct information, and am stuck at The Day Job until this evening, but I can tell you based on my own experiences as a lifelong New Hampshirite, with a good chunk of time living in the North Country: I do not think this was political in the least. My hunch is that this was a domestic situation that happened to unfold at the polling place.

Alternately, this could be a nutjob who just snapped -- that's happened up there before.

Again, I have absolutely no hard evidence to support my own theories and hunches here -- but I've got a good track record of predicting how these things play out.

Update: As a couple of folks pointed out, the shooting didn't happen AT the polling station, but caused it to be shut down -- and a school locked down. Sorry, folks; I read too quickly on my lunch break.

I WOULD advise using some of the new Gorilla Tape. Touted to be much stronger that that cheap Duct tape you're using right now. It should contain your head explosion tonight after all the returns are in.

If it was my polling station, there would have been more than one person doing the shooting.

It's New Hampshire.

I vote (and campaign) armed.
