So you can walk out of a store with a gun designed for mass killing simply by lying on a form. Makes complete sense.

The title of this thread should be changed since there is no evidence that this was a terrorist attack. I'm sure the OP wouldn't want to conflate a terrorist attack with that of a mass shooting.

Harold asked why anyone needs to own an AR. No private citizen "Needs" to own one. No private citizen needs to own a Cadillac...but there are choices. I explained at least why I own one. If you prefer to think I am a mass shooter, then I can't fix stupid!

And you are offering prayers for what?
And yes, I am claiming they are useless unless it makes you feel better to do it.

I stated that the victims were Christians. In that faith they are fine so I posed the question (see my post- it was a question).
Now...you want to talk about being an asshole? Your response falls squarely in that category.
The prayers are not useless. I am praying for the families of the victims, those that have been injured, the community where the church is, and our country in general because of these senseless crimes.

I personally believe that if those that were murdered were professing Christians, they do not need my prayers now, the are with their heavenly Father. I am praying for those left behind.

Interview with Johnny Langendorff. The guy that drove the pickup with the so far unidentified guy that engaged the shooter. Good man!

How do you know this guy was "mentally ill" as defined by law? Do you believe that if someone is thought to be mentally ill that we should strip him of his rights under the 2nd, 5th and 14th amendments just on your say so?

After one shooting, the talking point was "even someone on the no-fly list can buy a gun." Then, it was "silencers" and when that was quickly shown to be foolish, all of a sudden everyone was an expert on bump stocks. Apparently, someone spun the wheel and this time we are going with "the mentally ill."

In every case, we get the "WHITE GUYS ARE TERORISTS TOO!" and the new one, "Your thoughts and prayers are worthless"; even though many saying these things now offered the same thoughts and prayers last week when it was Islamist Uzbeki mowing down people with his rent-a-truck.

You are Bruce are right in line with the progressive talking points today. You guys are just a tad bit more subtle but the sentiment is pretty much the same.

They were in church. They had the prayers shot right out of them. Maybe try something else.

I don't have time to search for talking points, but go with that narrative if you need to.

If you are convinced your prayers do some good, go for it. I care as much as you do for those died and their families, I just don't believe prayer makes any difference.

What you call whining is what most Americans would call fed up.

Progressives!!
Hahaha. Just stop.
A GoFundMe page for the survivors and families will do a lot more than prayers.
How do prayers work for fire victims, hurricane victims, earthquake victims, genocide victims, cancer victims, mass shooting victims, acts of terrorism victims, etc.?
God’s will?
Exactly why I left “the church” many years ago.
Faith wasn’t enough.
