How horrible!

Another mass-murder by a gun-crazed nut in Virginia! My condolences to the families of the victims!

These days, this type of terrorism seems to barely make the news!

Poor Jenifer, another victim of the Associated Press...

AP says "Police refused to speculate on a motive and would not say what type of weapon was used. Molnar also gave no background on the suspect."

Wow, there All Propaganda looses their two basic templates for this kind of story, but Jennifer filled them in from her memory: "gun-crazed nut". Only, too bad for AP and the mushheads, they can't blame this one on some evil bloop gun or something.

Jennifer, if you "thought" instead of "felt" you could discover with a little research that guns save many more lives than are lost. And a little more research shows that when "gun-crazed nuts" perpetrate "this type of terrorism" it is usually in a "gun free" (aka: "killing field") of unarmed people created by bureaucrats pretending to care about people like Jennifer.

Jennifer, read my post carefully, there are a lot of ideas crammed into a tiny space.

When will the families of the victims be notified? I'm wanting to know if a friend is ok? How do I go about finding out if she and her family are safe?!

This crime wasn't a type of terrorism, dunce. Was the shooter part of some organization trying to effect political change through threats of force or acts of terrorism? No? Then it wasn't a terrorist act.

The terrorist is Christopher Speight, a 39-year-old white Christian American male. He used a handgun, has a conceal-carry permit, and a card-carrying membership in the NRA. So yes, he was part of of an " organization trying to effect political change through threats of force."

You just don't want to believe he is a terrorist because he is white and Christian gun-freak--exactly like you!

Of course he is a terrorist. The entire neighborhood is in lock-down. You don't call that terrifying?

...

Speight had collected at least 25 firearms, including black powder weapons, replicas of Old West era "cowboy"-style cap and ball six-shooters and many .223-caliber AR-15 semiautomatic rifles, which were among Speight's favorites."

Sad.

Anyone who *truly* believes in Christ doesn't go around shooting people.

He was no Christian.

Why, because YOU say so? He may believe that he believes. You don't know what is in his heart and you don't get to ex-communicate him just because you want to shed some guilt by association with him. That sword cuts both ways, doesn't it?
