Thank you gun lobby for ensuring that the right to conceal carry a handgun wasn’t taken away by irrational people who think self defense is morally wrong.

Pretty awful thing to see your parent murdered in front of you inside of a place that is supposed to be a sanctuary from the craziness of the world.

at first I thought this convinced me that guns really did have value under certain circumstances but even though this was a best case scenario, his k:d was still 2:1. the guy he killed seemed like he was trying to pull out a gun and failed. maybe reducing bad guys with guns is statistically worth reducing good guys with guns

Yes, it's a good thing that a reasonable person had a gun to protect those around him. We would however benefit even more from common sense gun laws that reduce the number of guns out of the hands of people who are obviously high risk. Letting the gun manufacturers dictate our laws to their maximum profit has to stop.

The shooter had a criminal record in multiple states and a documented mental illness yet he was still able to walk into a crowded church with a pump shotgun in broad daylight? Can’t say I’m surprised anymore.

before we praise these fellas... how about all the shootings that don't have people like this. let's not celebrate something short lived. Glad that at least 2 "follower's of GOD" are taken out. fyi GOD isn't real

Guess the fact everyone is carrying guns doesn't stop gun violence.
