Texas Massacre



Texas is rocked by the worst mass shooting in the Lone Star State's history. By now we all know the details, how Devin Kelley fired five magazines of 5.56 into a small church in Sutherland Springs, killing at least 26 people and wounding 20 more.

Thank God  for the plumber who had the bravery and skill to shoot and chase the deranged Kelley, putting an end to his killing. Kelley's motive? Apparently domestic conflict with his in-laws was the motive and doubtless his aggressive atheism made shooting up a church all the more appealing. 




How could this catastrophe have been prevented? By the Airforce reporting domestic abuse Kelley to the FBI on his dishonorable discharge, which might have stopped him from buying a firearm. Or, as a noted art philosopher commented, "By everyone qualified to carry a weapon actually carrying one." 




Good point. If everyone had been carrying their pistols Kelley wouldn't have got so far. That he did, and that such a thing occurred at all is a tragedy.

Pray for the victims of this atrocity and their families.

I"m sure there's a warm place, or is that a cold place, in hell for him.

May they rest in peace, Linda.

My personal take-away is, "ALWAYS carry a gun when you go to church."

LSP said...

Thanks, LL. And well done that plumber. Good presence of mind.

That's for sure, Brig.

Infidel, I'd be surprised if things were going well for Devin right about now.

Seems to be the wisest course of action, LL, sadly.
