    1. NEVER LEAVE HOME UNARMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      “At least 27 people have been killed and 30 people have been injured in a mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.”

  1. Again, suspect dead, and probably already put into the oven.

    “Deadliest shooting in Texas History” Here we go guys, propaganda headlines for a bunch of sheep.

    Let’s see how long the survivors “survive”.

    Notice how it’s become at least 20 dead every time now. These bastard weren’t happy with just one or two. Those days are long gone.

  2. So Vegas. ……too many cameras, too many witnesses, too many things to counter their”official BS”. Now Texas. ……no cameras, bbarely a handful of witnesses!

    1. This guy did not shoot back at the church shooter. He drove the vehicle with the “neighbor” that got his rifle and “engaged” the church shooter. Johnnie said the other guy/passenger held his gun on the shooter until police came. So why they are calling him a hero for shooting back doesn’t make sense. Where is the interview with the neighbor/passenger that supposedly engaged the shooter? He had his gun trained on him. Does this mean he was shooting?
      This interview doesn’t make to much sense to me. Again, where is the witness that had his gun trained on the shooter? I’ve not heard him speak.

    2. WTF? Dude, read the script, take the toothpick out of your mouth and read the GD script! Terrible acting, making no sense!

  3. nc you are close..try the wild bunch..sam made it over in texas..I consider it one of the greatest movies ever made..try to get the full version..when I saw it in 69..blew me away..blood bath at the end..and now you know where I got my name..loved that guy in the video..i think hes right on the mark..the lone gunman again..the lone ranger ..hi ho silver bullets and away..there is something happening here and its not exactly clear..

  4. It looks like 2018 is going to be a year everyone will remember with dread. Many top name stores closing, “shootings” and “terrorist attacks” ramping up again after a long period of virtually nothing, compared to the Obama years. I also agree….”there is something happening here and its not exactly clear.”.
