Terribly sad!

And here comes the usual political spin and talking heads from all sides. But does it really matter if the perpertrators were of this or that - rightest or leftest, whatever ethnicity, from whatever group or religion? Because, at the heart of it is always evil people willing to slaughter people per whatever perverse idealology or sensibilities.

Coward. If he had balls, he would have gone fight ISIS. Shooting random Muslim people is stupidity.

Just one more example of the contrast between
- an attitude of hatred and violence
and
- Jesus' attitude of love and giving his life for others

Matthew 5:43-47
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

Only Muslims aren't the enemy. The guys involved have more in common with ISIS than the Muslim men, women and children they shot.

We’re in shock here. Never thought it could happen. Prayers appreciated.

Apparently, to the shooter, Muslims are the enemy.

At least in his warped, demented mind.
