FTA  "The shooting happened just before 7 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Cornerstone Church,"

Did they close the door to the parking lot? I've been told that proper door control will keep us safe.

All the people in that so-called church must be sinners or JEEBUS would've protected them from the bullets.

This happened because they took prayer out of church or something.

Maybe we've got the order wrong...  Let's try Prayers and Thoughts this time.

Well the shooter killed himself, does that make him the good guy as well as the bad guy? It's very confusing who's who in situations like that.

3 dead, even counting the shooter?

The gun humping good guys ARE cumming.  That's a big part of the problem.  Oh, and they think the bad guys with guns are the good guys with guns.

Modest proposal, we need to locate gun shops near schools, hospitals and churches. Guns can already easily available but sometimes you have to drive over twenty minutes to buy one. If the shops are a two minute walk pastors, teachers and doctors can walk past the cowering police, buy a gun and be the good guy.
 
2022-06-03 11:11:22 AM  
I'm sure this will all be fixed as soon as they allow prayer in churches.

Once you have a gun, you're not a good guy. #ACAB

Of course, it just plays into the twisted and tribal conservative mindset that there are no good or bad actions, only good or bad people, irrespective of their actions. A "good" person (someone from their in-group) is good even when they do bad things and a "bad" person (everyone in the out-group) is bad, even when they do good things.

Where are the good guys with the guns? Seems to be the big talking point.

When fast reading, I read that as "God not found"

Sad. Curious to see the details, pretty sure Cornerstone Church at least used to be associated with a certain cult-like student group at Iowa State, and probably still is.

Just shoot anyone holding a gun, eventually the problem will sort itself

This state sucks and is run by republican f*cks. I'm over it. I want to move, and am looking at other opportunities, but it takes time. Covid Kim can go have her thoughts and prayers. She is a sh*t governor-in my opinion-and deserves to be voted out.

Thought the same thing.  Aren't mass shootings considered to be 4 or more victims?
 
2022-06-03 11:21:04 AM  
Men murdering women (I assume this will turn out to be her husband, ex-husband, boyfriend, ex-boyfriend) is something that concerns gun humpers and police even less than murdered children.

I mean, he only killed 2 people. That hardly counts as a mass shooting. In fact, it happens nearly every day, so ... what's the big deal?

We could set some up beside Planned Parenthood offices, too. That way no one has to be left out.

It used to be a purple state, there was an equal chance that the governor could be republican or democrat and we had both a republican and democrat as senators. Now the rural rednecks have taken over and even Grassley who was a moderate 20 years ago is kissing Trumps butt.

To be fair, many faith groups do not allow firearms on their property. There are thousands upon thousands of faith groups of all kinds across the nation. Despite what the media, who loves reporting on and sucking up to evangelical terrorists would have us all believe, MOST of them are not far-right wing, fascist nutjobs.

In 23 years of attending my place of worship, we've had one person bring a firearm. The teen religious education class were discussing gun control when a 14 year old spoke to say "I have my gun with me all the time. I've got it right now." The R.E. teacher told the teen that she would need to speak to him after class. She explained that he could not bring the firearm any more. They had a person whom he really liked and trusted greet him each Sunday and ask him to turn out his pockets for a month or two to be sure that he listened.

I don't know whether the R.E. teacher reported it to the teen's parents. Many teenagers find our place of worship on their own. They turn up on foot, on a bicycle, or an uber. They attend for years without any of us meeting a parent. The parents we do meet are often shocked that the teen has been disappearing to worship every Sunday morning. The teens go away to college and often we never see them again. A few come back to announce an engagement or married with kids of their own -- often after an absence of a decade or more.

No, you can't even go to an ONION FESTIVAL, a farking Onion Festival, without risk of being shot in the United States of America.
