      It is horrible news. I read where only 50 people were present and over 20 killed and the shooter was killed. It makes you wonder what was going on with this shooter and if he was a terrorist or somehow associated with this church.

      At church today one lady asked "how many mass shootings will it take before they (USA citizens) say "enough!" and demand laws to tightly control gun ownership?".

      I guess it may take many more.

      God grant grace and eternal peace to the people killed.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Unfortunately the gun lobby is to powerful. I dont agree with restricting guns but to control the type yes. I also think that some of this will never be preventable as mental health is hard to predict in many cases

      Which should have disqualified him from getting a gun

      Gun control works with law abiding citizens who have no mental issues. Anyone can get a gun if they approach the right people so gun control isn't part of the problem. We need to work more concerning mental health and in big cities like Chicago start cracking down on the gangs. The gangs have an entirely different mindset and guns to them are power.
