Speculation abounds that the Christian Church shooter was an Islamic "community activist". That may or may not turn out to be the case. In the interest of ecumenical fairness though, a determination should first be made to determine whether or not there were any monuments to Robert E Lee or George Washington that might have provoked the ire of a community activist of the violent Democrat party .

Well first let say the whole thoughts and prayers BS and then letís remember it is too soon to talk about guns when another mass shooting happens with guns. But nevertheless, welcome to Putinís puppet Trumpís disastrous America where on tragedy after another continues to happen on trumpís divisive watch. The terrorist and the neo-Nazis feel emboldened now that idiot Trump is destroying this country.

The gunman is described as a pathetic white loser, mid 20ís male wearing tactical gear and a Make America Great Again hat. Another pathetic disgusting fox news viewing Trump supporter.

I am a confused old man. A church is a place where people go to worship God. If his worshipers are gathered in church and Satan sends someone into the church where he can kill God's people, WHY DID GOD NOT STRIKE THAT SOB DEAD before he could kill God's people?

Well perhaps trucks should banned also because the mass killer in New York last week used a truck, no guns, just a truck. Maybe we should ban box cutters and butcher knives too....let's not stop there...we should ban ropes and panty hose, crock pots and iron skillets. How else can someone kill another person???? Maybe we should ban buildings over 2 stories too because someone might get pushed off the roof of a tall building....oh yeah and bathtubs and water because you know people have been drowned in a bathtub before. Get off Trumps case, he didn't cause this, the left has called for a civil war against anything they don't like. We suffered through Obama without losing our minds and calling for death and destruction, surely the left can manage to behave for a few years while Trump fixes what Obama destroyed. Grow up and act like an adult. Pouting time is over, give you blanky and binky to a real baby and pull you big boy pants up and act like a man....or woman...whatever.

Billy, sometimes we don't understand things that happen or why God doesn't always intervien in these events.The Bible plainly tells us that these things will happen, that His people will be hated. This is not Gods fault, this is pure evil and when someone does this, he will surely answer to God for it. It breaks my heart that you said you are a confused old man, please don't lose faith in God over the evil that Satan does.

Seems you are wrong yet again. The lunatic appears to be a distempered atheist sleeper agent like the atheists here, taking his marching orders from the recent calls from anarchist malcontents to start killing Republican Christians. You all are inviting the Wrath of God.

First, Satan is in control of the nations of the world. The Bible says that Satan is the god of this world. God will strike them dead in due time. As of yet, He still holds out a hand of mercy but that will end one day and then they will face reality.

Typical idiotic right-wing tea-bagger Trump supporter argumentÖ Only guns can do as much damage and kill as many people in such a short amount of time (other than a bomb) so easilyÖ But youíre too stupid to understand the difference between guns and other ways that people can be killed.

Trump is the most failed (illegitimate) president ever. It has been almost a year and he has control of every branch of the government and he doesnít have not even ONE legislative victory. Recent polling shows that Trump is seen as a complete and total failure to this point and the majority of Americans blame him and the GOP for everything that is wrong, and will be blamed when their health care cost increases. Youíre the typical fool who is supporting a fraud who committed treason by colluding with Russia. But people are catching on and Robert Mueller is closing in and Trump and all his buddies will be kicked out and locked away.

Yeah, okay....see, the difference in you and me is that I don't feel the need to call you names, or belittle your intelligence. I know that you have bought what MSM is selling and that is your right. I have yet to see any truly non-partisan news that is reporting that Trump is a failure. From what I have seen, Trump has behaved with dignity and wisdom. He has had a lot to handle since he took office and has made very good decisions. There is absolutely no evidence of collusion with Russia involving Trump. However, there is evidence of Treason from several in the Democratic Party, including Hillary, stemming from the uranium deal with Russia, not to mention the false report that that was bought and paid for by the Democratic Party to slander Trump. You can hate him all you want, that is your right, but you can not change reality or history to suit your taste in politics. This is reality, he is the president, he was elected, and regardless of the narrative that you choose to believe, he has done nothing to disparage women, to disrespect people of color or to take rights away from people who can't decide what sex they are or who they may be attracted to. Fortunately, my psychi is not bothered by your opinion of my intelligence, I feel sorry for you that you are so uncertain of yourself that you must attack people who disagree with you. The truth is that the elite have started this destructive path that we are on and intentionally turned this country in on itself based on color, sex and religion, because as long as we fight each other, they control us all. It's very sad that it has come to this.

Also, btw...when they take the guns away from all of us "right wing nut jobs", exactly how do you propose that we protect ourselves from criminals??? Do you believe the criminals won't have guns??? Do you think they are respecters of no gun zones? If so, how is that working in New York and South Chicago? If I'm not mistaken, there are far more gun killings in Chicago than in the rest of the country combined. How does that work in your philosophy of restricting guns from law abiding citizens? Also, I'm interested, when someone breaks in your home, do you trust the police to get to you before the criminal kills you with his illegal gun? I'm the wife of a cop and I'm glad I don't have to wait on the response time of police officers to protect me. Even if they are there in 3 minutes, which would be incredible, an intruder can do much damage in that length of time.

Your, Obama's and Jeremiah Wright's true colors do eventually come out...

A good guy with a gun stopped this maniacal Antifa member acting on the specific Leftist Democrat Antifa published agenda to kill Republican Christians.
