    Yeah there is. Their son. He said he wanted to "Save my country from you people". Republicans say that all the time about Obama and blacks.

    don't derail a good anti gun-anti GOP rant with facts now!

    I wonder where he bought the gun. to do it legally it had to have been after he turned 21. However, other sources say his father purchased it and gave it to him. not a crime unless the father knew the shooter was a "prohibited person" under the relevant gun control act of 1968 (18 USC 922 et seq)

    He has no point. Churches should not allow guns in a house of Worship.

    EDIT - The shooter's family instead of victim's. Can't believe that one slipped through.
    They're not victims. They may be affected by his actions, but they're not victims of his actions. The only victims here are the 9 black people who were killed by an admitted racist.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yep, you're right, I wasn't paying close enough attention and chose the wrong word. The family of the shooter are certainly not victims, my concession is they may(may not even) be good people but the judge should not be putting any priority on their feelings right now.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    why not? are you saying worshippers are less responsible than say mall shoppers, TGIF diners, Victoria Secret Lingerie customers or Ford Truck potential buyers?

    or do you believe "GOD" will intervene and strike down infidels seeking to harm the faithful

    what a stupid suggestion

    what about worshippers make them either immune from criminal attacks or incapable of responsibly possessing a firearm

    there is no reason why a church should be a victim disarmament zone.

    can you tell us why-other than you apparently are against people owning or carrying firearms no matter what?

    Spare me, do you have specific knowledge about the family, (one that you can post a link to a source)? My guess is you dont. So unless you can post a link affirming that the shooter's family exacerbated his rascist feeling by say, taking him to extremist meetings, buying him certain "literatuire", skin head music etc. , you conclusion is simply a rant.

    Would a private seller (non FFL vendor) be obligated to adhere to the over 21 law?
