Today's Good Old American mass shooting brought to you by...

A church in Sutherland Springs, TX, just outside San Antonio.

reports are 27 dead; shooter apparently dead as well. story still developing.

Standard disclaimer: it's still too early to politicize this tragedy, nothing we can do, hands are tied, Constitutional rights, etc.

Only thing that can stop an evil gunman in a church is a good congregation packing heat.

Or will Jones, Limbaugh..et. al..label this as a false flag?

Nahh...b/c a good guy is now in the Offal Orifice.

Actually...I'm curious to know how many of the parishioners were armed, and if there was any return fire...I kinda would have thought hayseeds in a podunk backwater town in the southern part of Texas would be packing all the time.

Texas would be packing all the time.

"A woman wrote on Facebook that she saw the man flee the scene in his vehicle before crashing it not far from her daughter's house. She said he then ran on foot and was pursued by police."


"The shooter was killed after the brief foot chase into Guadalupe County, according Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office spokesman Robert Murphy.
But it's still unclear if the gunman shot himself or was taken down by authorities."

Anyway the first (I think) address of the press at a conference by any official since the incident.

The Governor is starting out.

So the guy was white...police estimate in his early 20s.

Police saying they haven't ID'd him.

I guess he had no identification on his person.
