I was going to write on this shortly, but I'll comment on this thread now.
I felt physically ill when I first heard of this act of terrorism last night. It's just one more in a long line of terrorist acts done by a white supremacist at a black church and the sad fact is that it is not going to be the last. The chilling words that a survivor of the shooting attributed to him show that this was a racially motivated event. This monster reportedly said:
“You rape our women and are taking over our country and you have to go.”
This is what happens, as our President said earlier today, when we have a gun culture that has run amok in this country. This culture of "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy"--as the venerable Mike Huckabee like to say--is tearing this country apart. The Second Amendment doesn't trump all other Amendments in this country and we are going to continue to see these acts of terrorism throughout this country until we finally accept that sad reality.
