This is really sad.
I go to Belmont church usually and they have armed guards every Sunday.
Can you believe it? Actually feeling like you need armed guards at church? But I understand their concerns.
I'm praying for all of you over there MamaJ.

I'm going to assume it was a white male because that usually seems to be the case with mass shootings.
White male gun owners are a danger to the world, why do we let them still buy guns?
This is horrible, my thoughts are with the victims and their families.

The preacher, they call them in C of C is white. A very integrated congregation. Black and white folk being shot at on this one.
Hours after the Sunday morning shooting, the U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, the FBI and the Civil Rights Division announced they were investigating the case.
Murfreesboro police reports released Monday show Samson had a suicidal incident in June reportedly involving a gun.
Samson also had an additional handgun and an unloaded semiautomatic AR-15 rifle in his SUV.
One of the businesses listed at that address is G4S security. According to state records, Samson had a license to be an unarmed security guard from 2014 until January 2016.
G4S has not immediately responded to questions about whether Samson was employed.
Dimas Salaberrios, an African-American preacher from Brooklyn who flew to Nashville to help console the community. Salaberrios noted he had also been in Charleston, S.C. two years ago after Dylann Roof, a white supremacist, killed nine people in a shooting rampage at a black church there.
“The devil tried to start a race war there and I believe he is trying to start one here but he will not be victorious,” Salaberrios said.
then studied psychology at Mott Community College (probably for not more than two years), and then worked as a security guard. There is still a big block of time that is unaccounted for. I suspect the shooter spent time in the military, like so many other whack shooters.
