The recent school shooting is a tragedy on so
many levels we hardly know where to start and
it will take some time for all the facts to come
out so we’ll address it here.
Foremost is the fact that nine people are dead and
seven are in various stages of recovery from being
shot. Our condelences to family and friends. And
we give a heartfelt salute to Army veteran Chris

usually carrying multiple weapons, can walk right
in and start shooting.
We have to stop coddling terrorist and making
them sound like a children’s version of Robin Hood.
And we have to stop trying to get God out of our
country. We have the right to worship and if more
people did we might not be in the shape we’re in.
