Nine killed in shooting at South Carolina church, gunman still at large

Charleston Church Massacre

Nine people were killed late Wednesday at a historic black church in Charleston, S.C. after a white gunman walked in during a prayer meeting and began shooting.

Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen told a press conference early Thursday that the gunman, described as a clean-shaven man in his early 20s, was still at large and “extremely dangerous.” SOURCE

Hate, insanity, who knows what motivates a person to do such a thing, to attack a group of Christians engaged in a prayer service? One would think this to be a crime, an action that a Muslim would be involved in.

If this was the action of an insane person again I ask, gun ownership or the possession of guns by the *insane* is already against the law. Did no one spot some telling action(s) or words from this shooter?

I have no *inside* information on this shooting but I am going out on a limb once again by speculating that if this was NOT the work of a Muslim terrorist, if this were not the work of an insane person, then sheer hatred, racial hatred, must be looked at, looked at in great depth. 

Racial tensions are at an all-time high right now and incidents such as this will do nothing to help quiet them down, quite the opposite; this can, and likely WILL serve as a catalyst for even more violence as trust levels fall to zero.

It’s a travesty when events such as this take place and a terrible sign of the times when people of ALL faiths feel they must be armed simply to attend a service at their church.

To all; I urge constant vigilance and situational awareness; protect yourself, your family, friends and congregation.

EDIT: Well, I guess my idea of a racist were correct:

    I hate to say it but there is clearly a war on religion. Who can say at this point what motivated this young man to do what he did. The fact that the pastor was a politician has to be taken into account. I feel that the media has a lot to do with pushing the meme that religion is at the base of all these instances with it’s references to far left, think tank organizations such as the SPLC and their ilk. I, for one, don’t believe for one moment, that our government even thinks about God and the Constitution when making the new laws that are destroying our freedoms bit by bit. I pray every day for God to deliver us from the treacherous people who would seek to enslave us to a New World Order. Every incident like this brings renewed calls for more “gun control” and I have to feel that there is some sort of (I’ll say it) conspiracy to frighten the low infos into believing that WE THE PEOPLE should be disarmed. Our country has drifted so far to the left that I think Hillary or Jeb could be the end of the USA as a soverign nation if bo doesn’t get us there first. Stay well Fred.

    Many churches in Detroit, both white and black, are telling their members that if they have CCW permits, to carry to church. I know of churches in the St. Louis area where trained armed members are positioned throughout the church and bodyguards are always accompany the pastor during services. The church I used to attend in Montana tells its members to carry during services. Churches of all denominations are under attack in America.

    In actuality, this isn’t new. It is to us in America but it goes back to the time of Jesus Christ. You can say we were forewarned of this in the bible and the example was given to us. Prior to the invention of the handgun, the sword was the most deadly weapon a man could carry. When Jesus went to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane , the Apostles who accompanied him were armed in as much Peter used his sword to cut off the ear of one of the guards who came to apprehend Jesus. One of Jesus last commands to his disciples was to sell their garments if necessary and buy a sword

    The possibility of this happening anywhere is why my church has a security team in place that I serve on – and we all carry.

    • TexasFred says:

      You need to carry, all good people should carry, and get training if they don’t know how to use guns properly… I wonder? Would that be an acceptable summer program in a church?

        “So, Johnny, what did you learn in Vacation Bible School today?”

        “Sight picture and sight alignment …”

    I smell a race war brewin. Obama has wanted…and NEEDED a huge uprising of chaos and I feel may be a reason he is stoking racial resentment between whites and blacks.

    Obama used race to gain the presidency, and may used it once again to keep it. Imagine racial uprisings everywhere to the point that martial law is declared and elections suspended.

    Hitler had his brown shirts, obama has his brown skins.

    Hopefully I am simply paranoid, and that is not the case. But either way, the president that was supposed to heal the planet, make the middle east love us, put everyone back to work, and settle racial tensions, has accomplished none of it. In fact, EVERY ONE of those things is worse due to his presidency.
