The Tennessee capitol has the flag at half-mast.

The flag at the US Capitol is flying at half-mast today.

John Boehner posted this moments ago on Twitter.

Meanwhile President Barack Obama still has not ordered the lowering of the U.S. flag to half-staff at the White House and federal properties as a sign of respect and mourning for those killed, even though he (and former President George W. Bush) did so for previous mass killings by lone gunmen.

UPDATE: The White House finally ordered flags at half-mast late Tuesday morning.
