    So, not surprisingly, there is very little media coverage about this. Clearly that's because it directly contradicts the left's narrative about guns.

    If you haven't seen the video, watch it. The guy shot 2 people and was shot in the head by a private citizen volunteer security team member all in less than 6 seconds. So, for the Jack wagons who say, "Guns are bad, just call the police!" LESS THAN 6 SECONDS, ya morons! The guy would have killed countless people in the time it would have taken the police to get there. If you can't or won't accept that harsh truth as a fact of reality, you are part of the problem and frankly, you do not have American values.

    More guns in the hands of law abiding citizens is THE answer to the so-called "gun problem" although it is not a gun problem at all. The only gun problem we have in this country is these freedom hating liberal politicians trying to disarm us.

    What say you, resident freedom hating socialists/communists/fascists? scisports salt water guy , I would just love to hear your defense of your beloved big government on this one...

    As if it would have been a LOT better somehow if no one was armed so the shooter could have killed as many parishioners as he wanted to. Ridiculous. No fan of the mainstream media here

    So Rocketship, you don't think there will be any coverage of the incident on The View?

    1) I don't watch the view.
    2) I didn't make any predictions about what coverage might happen. Rather, I stated that I haven't seen or heard much media coverage this far.
    3) I don't watch the view.

    Saw the video and agree! Both of my kids (24 & 22) live in Texas and both have their CCW and never leave home without their guns.

    In 6 seconds. Educated shooter. He remained calm, thinking clearly, made a good decision. He saved many people much suffering that day. I am sure he wished he could have saved the other two unfortunate victims.

    It was on the local news here in SD.
    They didn't say that it was a good thing that he had a weapon.
    The guy that shot the shooter said in an interview that basically he didn't kill a man he killed evil.
    We need more like him.
    No gun free zone signs there.
    Maybe this will make another shooter think twice.
    Thing that gets me is the people that do this are said to be good people but have mental health problems. If the people that say this why don't they turn them in and save other people's lives.

    It is unfortunate that there are people out there who have the forethought (is that a word??) to walk into a church (or any gathering) and have the will to pull the trigger and kill people. It is unfortunate that we now live in a society where there is the need to carry in case something like this happens.
    You want to carry? Fine - just don't be a d!ck.
    You need to carry? oh cr@p.

    I would rather see a sane person carrying a weapon then a crazy nutcase carrying a weapon no matter what people say about him being a really nice person.
    But then again that's just me.

    Like so many Left.. putting all of their eggs in Joy Behar's basket... not a bigger dypshyt in the world than Behar.. and Goldberg is right behind her. I havent really paid attention to the story.. but I assume they've already blamed Trump for the shooting?

    Well.. all thats left to say is, this is CA. This state is all about restricting the rights of good citizens.. and all about allowing the bad guys and their guns to roam free. Its much easier to scare good citizens into coughing up their weapons than it is try and chase down a bucnh of bad guys and take theirs.

    Haven't heard anything from the opposing side yet about carrying concealed weapons. I thought that carrying a concealed weapon was suppose to put the public in harms way.
    I don't think that bullets were flying around killing innocent people.
    What say you.

    Well I am on the left. But I believe in the second amendment. I think though people should go to the range and be sure they have accuracy with their guns if they are gonna carry.

    Sorry to tell you but being part of today's left doesn't allow you to "believe in the second amendment".

    I am not a Republican but I lean conservative basically because the left wants to take your freedom. I literally cannot understand why anyone would align with a party that so clearly desires to strip away your freedom.

    Nothing will ever be perfect with our government but having a mostly hands off government is the closest we can get. That's called freedom. Freedom comes with a few "downsides" like you have to earn your keep and not be a free leader, your responsible for you and your family and their well being. Being a liberal is being lazy and irresponsible. Its asking the government to be accountable instead of yourself. Its asking for fascism. It's an absolute insane thing to do.

    I do appreciate an answer from someone on the left though. It's no surprise that Sdfish.com's resident freedom haters, scisports and salt water guy have nothing to say about this because it threatens their desire to watch the American people be enslaved under their beloved fascist left!

    Totally, Kyle. I'm not excited about each and every person carrying anything - open or not. There should be some major league enforcements/parameters with this.. psych reviews, huge amounts of mandatory training, massive background checks, bonding, and the list goes on. Not every citizen should be carrying. People dont think about the ramifications of carrying part because all they see is the Superman Syndrome for themselves and the light of the cameras on their faces should they be involved in an incident. What they never think about however is the fact that no matter what, it's going to be written up as a homicide investigation just like any other shooting - good or bad.

    I think most people on the left are pro second amendment. They don't want to take your guns away. It's that they want stricter regulations. If you want a hunting rifle or a handgun for personal protection, I'm all for it, as long as you have properly been trained to use it. It's harder to get your driver's license than it is to buy a gun. I believe only CA as of now requires you to have completed a gun safety course.

    This is the most frustrating thing for those of us who actually love and appreciate our freedom. "Stricter regulations"??? WT actual F???

    First of all, that is NOT the second amendment.

    Secondly, how do people still not understand that criminals do not abide by laws? Jeez-US!!! Making "stricter regulations" is literally saying we will disarm law abiding citizens and make it easier on criminals. It is already against the GD law to shoot people up. That law ain't stopping ANYTHING!!! The fear of being shot before they finish out their plan is a much stronger motivator.

    Bearing arms is a constitutional right! Driving is a privilege. It should be harder to obtain privileges than it is to live by your constitutional rights. How is this in anyway unclear to anyone?

    I am literally shocked at the level of ignorance in our country about this. It is sickening because this mentality will lead to fascism. How is that not a motivator to not be a freedom hating leftist? The only answer I can think of is that lefties have no matter of perspective. You don't appreciate what you have and you believe the BS narrative that it is better elsewhere. Ask Mexico how gun control is working out for them.

    You don't want to carry? Cool but stay the ever-livin' F out of it if I do because by RIGHT as an American citizen I do carry. If you CHOOSE to give up your rights, think long and hard before coming to demand I do likewise.

    Rose McGowen just stepped right in with them
    And now Virginia, of all places, is following our CA's incredibly stupid lead. Can't believe it.

    The Texas shooting clearly demonstrates that when seconds count, the police are minutes away. As Rocketship pointed out and reports have confirmed, it took less than 6 seconds. It is encumbent upon good people to protect themselves and their loved ones from the evil of this world. It is easier now more than ever to get your CCW in San Diego. I hate the fact that the Sheriff thinks that your 2A right is not a "good cause". But still, Sheriff Gore has been issuing if you have a "good cause". I can neither confirm nor deny that I carry concealed, that's up to you to decide. As for me, I will protect myself, my loved ones and anyone else that may need my help. It's not about left or right, Republican or Democrat, It's about taking responsibility for my own safety. Call me paranoid, I care not about your feelings.
