    Unfortunately, this is what it has become.....

    No time for sadness, for the victims, just "Who did it? What nationality, religion, etc.", (and I do not mean you personally Cookman).

    I've said it before....Social Media is the Devil.

    I do not believe that actions like this can be stopped with more gun laws, but something needs to be done.

    I would say condolences to the victims, but honestly, I don't know them...sadly, they are just one more statistic.....

    Sounds like a local guy. He ran but was caught five miles away in another town and either was killed or killed himself. (caveats apply)

    Texas has had several small town church shootings over the years. One high school...one or two denomination church. Presents a concentrated group for the town's mentally ill picked upon.

    Towns that small are usually controlled by one or two families. Law enforcement...judges...city management...etc. The shooter may have had a grudge against that structure and took it out on them at the church where they would all be clustered up.

    We'll probably know relatively soon as someone apparently knew him. Even if he was from a couple of towns over.

    I'm sure we will also see a demand for tougher truck control laws as well.

    People can’t even go to church and be safe. What a screwed up country we live in. I’m surprised by this, a big gun state like Texas and nobody had a gun on them? Pretty dang sad situation all the way around.

    It’s not about WANTING to know this first, it’s highly suspicious when it’s not out immediately.....since that’s the norm if they’re of certain demographics.

    They have identified him as Devin Patrick Kelley. Crapper rumor he is a recent convert to Islam. Emphasis on unsubstantiated rumor.
