Do Christians and the NRA Mix Well?

I don't think so. This is tragic; Slice:

The victims were all in the same room at the hotel, Tushaus said. The suspect, a man of about 45 who was armed with a handgun, was affiliated with the church, which had been meeting at the hotel every Saturday morning for four or five years.

Tushaus did not identify the victims but gave approximate ages. Two boys ages 15 and 17, a 72-year-old man and a 55-year-old woman died at the hotel. Three men ranging in age from 44 to 58 died later at a hospital.

Four other people were hospitalized in serious condition.

End slice:

What is the NRA saying about this incident?

Nothing on their front page.

Nothing on any of the first five most pominent posts: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Reap what you sew

Why pick on the NRA?

The second order of business at the Living Church of God is apocalyptic, to Preach the end-time prophecies and the Ezekiel warning, particularly to the "Israelitish" peoples.

The gunman merely stepped on the 9mm accelerator.

Most certainly, one reaps what they sew. "From my cold, dead hands." Certainly, they know it in Columbine.

No reason to pick on the NRA, except for the hope that perhaps they would have something intelligent to say about gun violence some day?

The list of nut cases out there is long and growing. I am still mystified how brainwashable youths who blow themselves up for a cause are. Perhaps it is because misery loves company, or things are so dire in such places that death is the best option...

No need to be mystified.

In their new book, Lightning Out of Lebanon: Hezbollah Terrorists on American Soil the authors warn of the presence of Hezbollah militants in the United States. Diaz and Newman say the cells could potentially be more dangerous than al Qaeda. Terry Gross, ''Fresh Air,'' March 3, 2005, covered why here. The link to listen works on dialup.
