A gunman opened fire inside a rural Texas church on November 5th, 2017. He killed more than two dozen people. This is the largest mass shooting in the history of the state.

Twenty-six people were killed during the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. There was investigation about why that particular place was chosen.

This massacre in Sutherland Springs is the deadliest ever at a house of worship in the United States.

In addition to the twenty-six people who died, at least 19 people are hospitalized.

The shooter was later found dead, identified as Devin Patrick Kelly (26). He was a former member of the Air Force, confirmed that Kelley was court-martialed in 2012 on two charges of assaulting his spouse and their child. He was confined for a year and reduced in a rank to airman basic E-1 before his charge.

Federals say that the motive for the shooting is unclear.

A local resident confronted the gunman after the shooting began grabbed his rifle and engaged that suspect.

The gunman dropped the rifle and then fled with the resident, identified as Johnnie Langendorff.

Once again, this article can symbolize the dangers of Amendment II, and how we seriously need more background checks regarding individuals (specifically men) and their ability to own a gun.

What do you think about Amendment II? Should it be revised? How would you help the people of Texas? Would you comfort the families who have lost someone to this massacre? I know I would. Bless the innocent lives that were take from this awful tragedy.

    – I feel so bad for the people that were praying to God and than died suddenly.
    – I really wonder why that specific church and why shoot these innocent people and why he shot himself after?
    – I agree that the 2nd amendment should be updated and more strict

    Maybe he disagreed in the religion that the church taught. We do know that he had an abusive past with mental illness, a discharge from the air force and domestic abuse against his girlfriend and baby. The law should have been enforced to prevent him from owning a gun because he had made death threats in the past to his air force superiors. The smallest things can trigger horrible acts when someone is mentally unstable. You cant really take guns away from people; just like with the issue of drugs but society needs to do a better job of taking care of the mental health issues people face.

    Honestly what is the point of doing mass shootings? Like what are you honestly getting out of it? If you are just trying to get your name out there then do it in a good way and not the bad way because it seems like these people who are doing all these mass shootings are just putting a very very bad vibe on their self. Also I want to know what goes through that persons head when all this is going down and they are already doing this and they can’t turn back and change their mind. Then after most of these mass shootings they either kill they self or someone kills them. It is sad to hear about all these mass shootings.

    I don’t understand why people have to do such tragic things like this. If anything God was with them when this all happened and took their souls, although they really should have background checks.

    I honestly don’t or can’t understand how much hate someone can have in them to do such thing. I feel like these people don’t have hearts and are crazy enough to kill people. People who do this need to be behind bars. I think it’s very unfair to people because it seems that we aren’t safe anywhere now in days. it’s a tragic situation that has been happening lately. I feel like it makes us not want to go out and be in crowds anymore.
