First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX, was the scene of another senseless mass shooting this morning about 11:30 am during the Sunday morning service. At least 27 people have been killed and more than two dozen injured.
The shooter took off after the shooting with police officers in pursuit. The gunman was killed after a short chase. It is unclear if the shooter was killed by police or if he took his own life.
There are still lots of unknowns about the shooter.

How about getting in touch with your elected officials and demanding that something be done?
I respect your views on prayer, but the shootings would have stopped if prayer had that much power, as millions have been praying. It's done nothing to stop these senseless acts. Sorry, but I'm way past that. This country should be past that at this point and should be demanding action. People, including our so-called leaders, send their thoughts and prayers and then put it all behind them and go about their day. The same thing will happen in another week or two. And again, and again.
Thoughts and prayers just don't cut it anymore for me.

If everybody's DNA was taken, they'd find out how MANY parts of themselves come from the 'others' over whom they feel superiority, and espouse hatred of.
It would be a rude shock to some, but then again you've got your deniers, so it probably would make very little difference.
What a bunch of cowardly chicken-splats with grandiose and twisted agendas.
Wonder why hanging the heads of criminals in the public square for the crows to eat went out of fashion?
That might take the 'glamour' away from being an infamous murderer...no mention of their name in the paper, just a rotting head would be their legacy.
