    Afterall, it is their "constitutional right".

    "A woman who said she works at a gas station across the street from the church told ABC News she heard rapid gunfire around 11:15 a.m.

    Congregants fled the church and ran to the station cowering for cover, she said.

    “We heard several shots and we all started running inside the store,” said the woman, who said she is 49 but declined to give her name.

    '“It lasted about 15 seconds," she said. "I yelled, ‘Get down! Get inside!’ and we all went into hiding.”

    Within minutes of the gunfire, emergency personnel arrived at the scene, she said."

    Not sure where to put this. It's not exactly political, nor is it religious. What it is is appalling, and raises questions as to just what this nation is coming to:

    At least 20 people killed, many more injured, in a church shooting in rural Texas:

    Guess we will need to wait and see if they discover a motive for this horror.
    Had to be some reason for him to come from out of town to this particular off the beaten path town.

    There had to be some reason.
    Unfortunately, the shooter isn't talking. He's dead.

    Perhaps explore the means rather than motive.
