Bryce Williams fatally shoots self after killing journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward on air
Today has been a particularly bad day in this nation; senseless gun violence has taken more lives and has robbed our nation of lives that mattered!
(CNN)—After he shot two journalists on live TV and before he shot himself, Bryce Williams sent a message: “I’ve been a human powder keg for a while….just waiting to go BOOM.”
Those were the words the gunman wrote in a chilling fax to ABC News, according to the network. The document purportedly from the Virginia shooter came after he gunned down WDBJ-TV journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward, spurring a manhunt that ended when he turned a gun on himself as troopers closed in.

Every time there is an act of terrorism committed in the name of Islam we are told we’re not supposed to judge all Muslims by the acts of a few Muslim crazies, but the acts of a few American crazies are enough for damned near the entire Liberal Left to condemn ALL Americans who own guns.
Can anyone besides me see the hypocrisy of that statement?
Liberal journalists and broadcasters immediately jumped all over these shootings with cries for more gun control. Today the Liberal outrage on the Dallas Morning News and the Houston Chronicle was pathetic.
Regarding the shooting today Hillary Clinton said, We Cannot Wait Any Longer to End Gun Violence. Well, OK Miss Know it All, just what do YOU have in YOUR little bag of tricks that will end gun violence? And let’s talk REAL solutions, not the typical Libtard screeds of, *If no one had guns* or the ever popular, *We need to register ALL guns*, OR, *We need to make America a gun free nation… *
Yeah, I really like that last one, *gun free zone*, but I have never understood how you get that *gun free zone* thing over to the criminals.
We, the legal gun owners of America, are supposedly responsible for the actions of these sick SOBs today and any other day that an act of heinous gun violence occurs, but it’s NOT people like you and me, the readers of this blog, or SANE American gun owners that are going out and committing gun crimes.
We are NOT committing armed robberies, we’re not killing our fellow Americans and no one I know wakes up in the morning thinking *Ya know,today is the day that I’m gonna go out there and commit a few murders…*
That is NOT the mindset of ANY sane person.
Liberals always blame Conservative Christians and *redneck* gun owners by saying that we perpetuate the violence, that we cling to our guns and bibles, well, this guy today was the antithesis of everything the Left hates in American gun owners; he was Black, Liberal, a race baiter and, according to the paragraphs below, he was a homosexual. That’s not the type of person the ant-gun Left is used to condemning, and somehow, I doubt they will do a condemnation of him.
In a 23-page fax to ABC News and a follow-up call, both after the attack, the man identified himself as Vester Flanagan and as Bryce Williams. He said he suffered racial discrimination and bullying at work and was attacked for being black and gay.
“The church shooting was the tipping point,” he wrote, according to ABC News, “but my anger has been building steadily … I’ve been a human powder keg for a while … just waiting to go BOOM!!!!”
Well, on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 he went boom, murdered 2 innocent victims, shot and wounded another person and ruined many lives with his insanity before he killed himself, bringing grief to his own family.
It’s way past time for this to happen but the Left and ALL anti-gun people in America need to realize; the gun didn’t do it, the gun is an inanimate object, the person pulling the trigger is responsible for the actions committed with the gun.
Gun control, in the sense the Left uses it, is NOT the answer and frankly, I have no idea how to stop the insanity of senseless violence, but I know this; more restrictions, banning guns and ammo and more laws is not the way to get guns out of the hands of CRAZY people.
Rest in Peace Alison and Adam. I’m sorry we couldn’t help you in your time of need. At least your killer is dead and on his way to hell, and for that I am grateful.
