single shooter, at least 27 being reported dead, I'm assuming it was Sunday mass...


Sick, sick person to go and do this

I've also seen reported that the shooter reloaded multiple times. Just another example of how magazine limits don't do a damn thing. These mass shooters almost always reload, the idea that making them reload more often would somehow save lives is bunk. It only takes a second or two. No one was able to stop him while he was reloading.

My thoughts is that someone had a serious issue with the people in this town. I don't believe it is random, IMO.

Isn't TEXAS a state where anyone can carry a gun? I surprised the guy wasn't shot by one of the parishioners.


I grew up a southern baptist and we don’t take guns to church...
My grandfather was a chief of police in a smallish town and would leave his holster empty at church...

Out of the 250 people in our church I would bet at least 30 or so is carrying. This would be in KY.

As far as a "pill for everything" goes. Thank God. I see what they do everyday. Plus how many of you would be dead in a month if not for "pills"? From heart attack and stroke from hypertension, diabetes, liver disease, depression and suicide, metabolic and endocrine disorders, and on and on. And on and on. Be glad we have pills.


I think the general idea here wasn't that all pills are bad, but the default to them when there may be alternatives is bad, and in general pushing mentally ill people off to the pharmacy after a 15 minute interview probably isn't the best idea either.


I don't know of any practitioners who do that. It's typically that the person who needs to come in, doesn't.

Comments on one the links are saying "Christopher Ward " is the killer. Maybe someone with google skills can look into that a little better.

I understand what the pills do, but they are not a cure they are meant to mitigate the symptoms and not meant for indefinite usage.

We have to get back to trying to heal people not just treat the symptoms.

Well now you do. I've had them do that to me before.

All accounts are that it's a small town. Perhaps if the shooter is local he knows who carries and those were the first people he shot. That's pure speculation of course.

Anyone notice how small the actual parking lot is?

For 20+ people being dead and 20+ more wounded, there certainly doesn't seem to be 40-50+ people worth of actual cars there.

I see a TON of law enforcement vehicles. No tow trucks. Hardly any "other" vehicles.

If so many people were victims, where did their cars go?

Bodies aren't even cold yet, and rather then trying to dig for DETAILS ya'll are out in la-la land on soap-boxes.

Seems we've gotten lazy in our facts, and fat on our personal soap-boxes.

Sad, tragic event, no matter the motive, reason, etc. The loss of human life in any mass-event is tragic and should be handled with the utmost respect and dignity. This isn't twitter/4chan/reddit where anything goes.

Twenty-seven people lost their lives, possibly even a lil one who hasn't even really had the chance to live. Lets show some respect, and honor and find DETAILS, and make sure this isn't whitewashed away to the obscurity and annals of time and propaganda.

I heard that the "pursuit" between authorities and the shooter went all the way to a neighboring county, but now that the shooter is deceased (and we don't know whether by their own hands or the hands of authorities)

In small towns, believe it or not, on a nice day walking to church is a nice way to start the day.

I used to walk to church where I used to live. Was about 3/4 of a mile one way, and a great way to reflect and clear ones head.

I have not seen video or pictures of this yet.

But being its a small town probably families riding together, if each vehicle was full would that make the number work a bit better?

Thoughts go out to the families and friends of the victims.

R.I.P.

Senseless loss of life and they just keep coming, all over the place.

I just got an alert about the numbers. Jesus Christ...

Now I wonder who it was and the motivation....

Just another day in America with a mass shooting, nothing to see.

I wonder about the over prescribing of antidepressants though. Granted, I am sure they are necessary for some, but I had a friend that was prescribed an AD, and she was unable to cry. I was boohooing at a movie one time and looked over at her and she was totally dry-eyed. I whispered that I couldn't believe she wasn't crying in this scene, and she whispered back that her medications keep her from being able to cry!!
