Interesting you should state this, SBH.On a side note, if I would have been there to restrain him and not been packing heat, he might still not have lived.
This church appears to be a liberial bastion. According to one of the news reports, this church founded a chapter of the ACLU and has been a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Now, they have their right to do as they please, but this is a case of the chickens coming home to roost. It was terrible what happened in that church. Anytime a person takes up a firearm to do harm, it is a terrible thing. Bottom line I do not believe this church and its members will do any more to handle security because it would "send the wrong message". They will collectively bleat that the government must do more to protect them. In fact the radio news Had a church member talking about the shooter. She kept referring to the guy as "some how disenfranchised from society, has a disconnect with people" and so on. The church member was actually making excuses for the shooter. If that was my church and they asked me, all I would be concerned with is if anyone has a rope.
Hate crime legislation cheapens the life of white males. Suppose a white man kills a black man, obviously it's a hate crime and the punishment is more severe. Murder and hate crime.I don't understand the term "hate crime", it makes no sense to me.
