Texas Governor Abbott condemned the “evil act,” writing on Twitter, “Our prayers are with all who were harmed by this evil act.

The victims were praying when they were slaughtered, ya ironsided sociopath imbecile. Fat lot of holy grace it did to save them.

Funny, right wing idiots are falling for photoshops of the guy's facebook page that shows an antifa flag along with likes of CNN, atheist pages, and MSNBC. These people are so fucking pathetic - desperate to paint this as a liberal thing. I hate Antifa as much anyone, but I'm even more sick of people falling for fake news. Maybe he was, but what's been released is clearly fake.

He taught or assisted @ bible study classes, and apparently had a tie to the church from his mother in law.

The trollbaiters, whackjobs , crackpots, and conspiracy kooks all have come out of the woodwork, some posting such insane BS, that I had to click out of the comments in disgust.

now I'm reading he was apparently dishonorably discharged from the AF for domestic violence, meaning he could not legally purchase firearms. but all he had to do was lie about it on his background check form.

I've read about how background check laws are passed, but no legislatures ever apportion funds to actually DO the background checks, so in practice they are meaningless.

but hey... in this case it would mean one more gun sold. only 27 people died so Armalite or Bushmaster or whoever could make $700.

The reality in America is: that is an acceptable arrangement.

Where does it state in the 2nd Amendment that US citizens have the right to own rapid-fire weapons to defend against govmint tyranny?

b/c that is a common excuse given by gun hoarding ammosexuals. I suppose that some do, b/c their cache's value would soar in the black market, if assault weapons are ever banned.

Kelley uploaded an image of his assaUlt rifle, but no one who knew that he was DD ratted on him.

I don't blame them... who would rat on a homicidally crazy person with an assault rifle? I doubt very much the local PD would take an interest in doing jack shit about it.

Not the locals, but the service branch who DDed him.
