There’s been a lot said about the shooting that happened in a Knoxville church this weekend. Some want to blame the conservative media for making this liberal church a target. Some blame the lack of gun control. I’ve even seen comments that suggested that this church asked for it. (I know right?!)
The thing is this happened at a church where there was no expectation of violence (much like a school shooting). The congregation was kicked back enjoying a children’s program when a madman burst into the sanctuary with a shotgun and shot 5 people. Two of those people are dead. As far as I know this kind of thing has never happened before actually it has, several times.
The fact that they were liberal matters as much in this situation as the gunman being a truck driver.
