5. Ironically, the shooting happened at a church

Sources say at least part of the shooting took place at the Juniata Valley Gospel Church.

http://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2012/12/21/4-dead-3-state-troopers-injured-in-blair-county-shooting-2/

Given the accuracy of news reports of last week's school shooting tragedy, however, we should wait until the full, confirmed story comes out.

9. If that proves true, I wonder what the Huckster will say now?

Wrong kind of Xtian? Liberal plant? But yes, we should wait to know the truth.

14. all news mentions it now but how did this happen if Huckster, etc. are correct???

The woman was killed at the Juniata Valley Gospel Church, a nondenominational church outside of Geeseytown on Juniata Valley Road,

This shooting is sad and so are the fundies trying to say this is only in God's control because it really is the people's choice now in USA......
All happening while NRA talks about how it wants more guns around children

11. That hits close to home for you. Hope all you know and love are okay.

Another terrible tragedy thanks to our gun-obsessed culture that refuses to help the mentally ill and provide jobs for those who want to work.

16. And what did Corbett say yesterday

that I heard a blip about on the radio this morning here in Philly? He said he wasn't planning on doing anything about the laws here in PA because it was the "feds'" job.

in the city that recently surpassed 300 homicides and just had 6 folks shot last night (and 1 died).

15. Obviously, there weren't enough guns on the scene.

More guns would have surely prevented this!

Prayers to the family members who can be added to the list of those who will not have a good holiday.

This must stop.

20. There was an incident here in Porterville, Ca on Dec 9th

Guy - acknowledge by all who knew him, as a nice, friendly guy - went berzerk and shot his two young daughters, his brothers and some others. Then died in a shootout with sheriff's deputies. Of course, guns had nothing to do with it.

21. We need more armed guards in churches!

....according to that genius, Wayne LaPierre.

Meanwhile, three Pennsylvania State Troopers were injured, and Tom Corbett won't even address the gun problem. As usual, Corbett does NOTHING!

Four people dead by gunfire and Tom Corbett, Wayne LaPierre, and the NRA do nothing.

22. Sigh. My home area. I went to Frankstown Township Elemenatry School.

Five days a week for twelve years, I went through Frankstown Township on my way to school, from grades 1 through 12.

Most of my family still lives within six or seven miles of it... This sort of thing CAN happen anywhere.

23. Local paper has more details

http://www.altoonamirror.com/page/content.detail/id/567048.html

The woman was killed at the Juniata Valley Gospel Church, a nondenominational church outside of Geeseytown on Juniata Valley Road, sources tell the Mirror. A confrontation occurred outside the church with a second person shot and killed.

The gunman then drove off in his pickup truck and crashed head-on into another vehicle, sources said. He then shot and killed the other driver.

Troopers killed the suspect after they were fired upon on Juniata Valley Road. They responded to calls of an armed person involved in other shootings in the same area, state police spokeswoman Marla Finn said.

A third trooper was involved in a head-on crash with the pickup. The driver exited the truck and immediately fired upon the responding troopers, who returned fire, killing the gunman, Finn said.

24. Tho it's not part of the dialog now, this is what happens when the RW media eggs them on.

FOX and through Glenn Beck and his crazy doomsday scenarios, and Liddy, and Savage, and Coulter,.. all of them, contribute to this shit.

Because of the manufactured hysteria from NRA and the RW media in 2008, not only are gun sales through the roof, but the suckers who hang on their every word, are getting more paranoid, and more angry, and more dangerous.

No one is saying it, but the hate media is every bit to blame for the violence. That brainwashing and fear mongering is destroying us, one assault weapon at a time.
