Texas active shooter. update Tuesday 7 Nov 0335 Eastern

Tuesday,7 Nov 0335 Eastern

Amplification on why this individual was able to buy firearms. Link below.

As of now: Monday afternoon


MSNBC and CNN are saying the shooter had a "bad conduct discharge", as opposed to a "dishonorable discharge." If it was a BCD it wouldn't have prohibited him from legally buying weapons. Fox and several State of Texas authorities say it was a DD, which would have. Lots of hooting and hollering from the left wing media about more gun control.

It appears this was a case of some psychopath "getting even" with his mother in law. Otherwise, no much else in the way of new information.



Original Post Sunday Night:


The news says this guy was kicked out of the Air Force with a dishonorable discharge.

So, he was breaking the law by possessing any kind of firearm, and it was a federal offense too boot. So much for the efficacy of "gun control laws."


"With this characterization of service, all veterans' benefits are lost, regardless of any past honorable service, and this type of discharge is regarded as shameful in the military. In many states a dishonorable discharge is deemed the equivalent of a felony conviction, with attendant loss of civil rights.[17] Additionally, US federal lawprohibits possession of firearms by those who have been dishonorably discharged[18] per the Gun Control Act of 1968."

The news is also saying that a neighbor ran over to the church with a rifle, and the neighbor and some random civilian passersby chased the shooter into a ditch where he got dead, though there's no word on what croaked him yet.

  1. Tragic.

    I wonder what will get covered up with this one. Vegas has gone down the memory hole, but much of that story makes no sense at all -and it keeps changing. Now that we have a new one, we forget everything that went on before. Rinse and repeat.

    1. I feel the same way. Maybe this was a straight forward nut case, it looks that way. But your point about Vegas being shoved under the rug, and then this comes up to further move the Vegas shootings into the distant and remembered past. It does seem a little too pat.

  2. early indication shooter was either recent islamist convert or as one associate said"radical agnostic." that's a new one on me, but one of his facebook posts looks very muslim to me. either way, kudos to the neighbor. too bad he didn't go to services that morning. or someone else with a gun...like i told my wife, this isn't new. the jews and others have dealt with it for decades and more. its just our turn, so arm up and do your duty i say. couple guys at the door, one in the lot with comms ought to do it. uzi in the pulpit for insurance.

    1. There's a lot of scuttlebutt floating around right now, I'm hoping that the good news web pages (not the television media, except perhaps OAN) will start filtering it and we can get some more hard facts from them. I think most of what is on the television is "made up."

      You're right. This is the new normal. It can happen in a city, or in a small town, and anywhere in between. I don't even take my wife to town for supper or to the park to walk without a pistol on me.

    1. Sue, I appreciate that. One nice comment makes up for 10 that I have to delete and not post because they're just obscene screeds. ;-)

  4. Harry, Sutherland Springs is just about 30 miles from me. Have distant cousins that live there. It's the last place you would ever expect this kind of evil. They say the shooters ex inlaws attended church there, but were not present that day. Surprised some of the congregants weren't armed, if they were they were caught be surprise.

    1. Randy, that's mighty close. Things like this are like asteroids, if you happen to be where they come down, you are SOL.

      I'm surprised nobody in the congregation was carrying too. But maybe they thought God would protect them, I don't know....

  5. A "good guy" with a gun stopped the shooting. The first action of the Godforsaken Democrats is to dance in the blood for more Gun Control. They can't be that stupid can they? Do they have minders that feed them and tie their shoes? They are just disgraceful. No one has the right to take your means of self defense. No more "Gun Control". Period.

    1. They are without any moral scruples at all. Have you seen the add being run in the Virginia governors campaign by the so called Latino Victory Fund? It's revolting.

    2. I've seen it as I live here in the pitiful state of VA. It was officially yanked within hours of last week's attack in NYC by a Musloid islamist.

      However, it was saved and is being used against the Godforsaken democrats in political ads. In fact we're hoping that'll be the straw that breaks the camel's back. It was race baiting, and offensive to white people whom they still need many of in order to win.

      Later tonight and it'll be late..... we will find out. Hoping the crap weather today's keeps alot of the blacks and other democrats in.

      If that makes me racist, then I gladly wear the label.

      They can all bite me.

      Annoyed in VA.

    3. Annoyed in VA, I'm 100 percent in agreement with you. Moreover, I long ago gave up worrying about being called a racist. I wouldn't even use the word "black" on this blog for years, because I didn't want to "offend." But then I realized that was light standing still while someone continually punched you in the face. I don't worry about it at all now.

    1. This guy had a long history of appalling acts of cruelty, especially towards infants, women, and animals. I'm delighted he is dead, but there are plenty more like him still out there, unfortunately.

  7. Hey Harry,

    I'm hours away from where the shooting happened and it was a terrible surprise.
    You guys know about as much as I do and I know its not confirmed but I heard the plumber that shot the shooter of the church had an AR-15. The chase happened and well you guys know the rest.

    I can guarantee you now every church in Texas come Sunday will have armed attendee's and or security.

    Its a sad world we live in but if you don't arm yourself, you will be a victim.

    1. CC, there are still so many contradictory stories going around, I don't know much more about it than I did when it all started. I did see an interview with the driver of the truck that chased the guy, but it was about five seconds long. If I was a church goer, I'd carry or I'd stay home.

  8. I heard this morning that the Bad Guy was shot three times, the abdomen, leg and the self inflicted shot in head. So the Good Guy apparently hit him twice, which is probably why he left the scene.

    1. MSM is being very careful about giving any credit at all to the individuals who intervened in this event. Instead, all the face time goes to people they can extort some highly emotional content from, then use it to attack President Trump and pimp for gun control. I've seen a couple of short interviews with the good guys, and it does seem like they, and they alone, put an end to the rampage, but they aren't going to get credit for it from very many news outlets.

  9. Hey Harry,

    Important Update!

    I saw a rare interview with the guy that shot the 'church shooter'

    The good guy was an NRA instructor and he shot the bad guy with an AR-15.

    The interview was on 'Louder with Crowder' on YouTube. The good guys daughter is a subscriber to 'Louder with Crowder' a YouTube news commentary show, and arranged the interview. It came out yesterday and the interview is 38 minutes long. The good guy is the real McCoy. A Gentlemen in his 50's that has roots in that town going back to his great grandparents and his kids and grandkids live in the same town.

    This is the kind of hero we need in this country.

    1. I sure wish some of that would get on the main stream media outlets. They are making a huge effort to keep anything positive about gun owners and armed citizens off the air. Fox has had just a little bit about the two men who intervened, and On America News mentioned them, but they have been conspicuously absent from the drive by media.
