More on the Texas State Shooter

It's early yet and we've got to understand that these things take time.  But, there are a few things that we know, and a lot that's being reported.  Some of it true, some of it false.

What we do know is that some deranged cowardly dick-head shot up a church in Texas yesterday.  Twenty-seven ?? dead  We know that a local citizen ended the shooting, by busting caps on the cowardly shooter.  We know that the shooter left the scene and was found dead elsewhere.

We also know that several Godless Democrat senators called for gun control before the blood was dry or the bodies even cooled.   I have written my Senator, John Kennedy of Louisiana, asking him to rebuke his colleagues on the Senate floor.  Dancing in the blood of the victims is despicable, and I used that word in my letter to my Senator.

There are lots of things we don't know, as of this writing.  Was he an Antia member?  Snopes says no.  Did he obtain his weapon legally?   Did he receive a Dishonorable Discharge?  Was this rampage random, or did he have some connection to the congregation?    All these questions and more will be answered in the days to come.

What we do know is that he was a cowardly little sonofabitch,  We also know that he murdered dozens of people in a place or worship, and that act in itself is still against the law, even in Texas. This fact, above all others, shows the absolute futility of any laws that might be promulgated against such things.  The little coward didn't care about the murder laws, so why would we suspect that he would care about gun-control laws? 

We know that an armed citizen stopped it.  He saved lives.  That is the basic argument for the 2nd Amendment.

One thing I am curious about that I doubt will be mentioned in the news: Did the church allow concealed carry? I know businesses in Texas can ban conceal carry, and the penalties there for violating it are MUCH stiffer than where I live.
I know of churches in other parts of Texas where many attendees carry; to me the toll of dead and injured suggests that no one in the church was armed, and given that it WAS Texas, the only reason I can see for no one to be armed was that the church did not allow it.
