Gunman Kills At Least 24 In Texas Church

NOTE: We will have to wait to learn the gunmanís skin color before we can decide if it is terrorism or mental illness.

Several Casualties Reported in Texas Church Shooting
Source: NBC

A single shooter walked into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and opened fire, Wilson County Commissioner Albert Gamez Jr. told NBC News.

Gamez said he had spoken to the sheriff and other officials who said there were multiple fatalities and multiple wounded, but it was not immediately clear how many were dead or injured.

The shooter was "down," Gamez said.

Several other law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation also said "multiple" people had been killed, with as many as 15 injured. The FBI and ATF were headed to the scene, the sources said

At least 27 dead in Texas church shooting

The gunman, who is reported to have been killed in the aftermath, entered the church and opened fire at around 11:30 local time (17:30 GMT).

"The details are kind of sketchy but what I know right now, what they're telling me, like 27 deceased and over 20, 25 injured," Mr Gomez Jr said.

"They're talking about the shooter is dead also," he added.

*If a non-Christian did it, then it is terrorism.

*If a black man did it, then it was Black Lives Matter

*If a Hispanic did it, then it was the fault of immigration policy.

*But, if an old, bitter white guy did it, then the good ole boy just had a mental illness.

I agree. Dead is dead. Unfortunately, our right wing friends do not see it that way.

I hear what both you and gordy are saying. Whoever he was, whatever he believed or a point he wanted too make means absolutely zilch after the heinous act was committed. That goes for any mass shooter or bomber or dumbfuck who thinks violence is the solution to whatever crawled up their ass that day!
Thanks from imaginethat and Sensible

I notice that neither in the press, nor on this thread has there been the usual "it was probably a Muslim" type of posts.

I wonder why.

Disclaimer. I haven't checked Fox News or Breitbart.
