CNN launched its website, CNN.com (initially an experiment known as CNN Interactive), on August 30, 1995. The site attracted growing interest over its first decade and is now one of the most popular news websites in the world. The widespread growth of blogs, social media and user-generated content have influenced the site, and blogs in particular have focused CNN's previously scattershot online offerings, most noticeably in the development and launch of CNN Pipeline in late 2005.

    The solution is so obvious,Priests in Amerika should wear combat helmets and preach behind a machine gun turret,the congregation must be given bullet proof vests when they attend church,why cant the Yanks see that?

    It appears the shooter was an atheist according to his interests on facebook. Screenshots were taken before the page was scrubbed. Seems he really hated Christians.

    knee high to a duck, its like you were the size of a gopher. Im not sure about the accuracy of any of your statements now. But being that you were brain washed by these people, look for the silver lining, now a large portion of these liars can no longer mislead you.

    Latinos and Blacks only kill each other for street justice since we can’t call the police, we handle our shit like men. White people kill crowds of children in schools and churches. That’s some cowardly shit!

    What they should do is, when someone is entering Texas, if they don't have a gun, give them one. Texas should be the first state to ARM EVERYBODY !!!    May Satan bless Texas and may the most firepower win. That is the American way.

    Only a crazed leftist would shoot up a church and this ALWAYS happens in “gun free zones” because Liberal Socialists (Communists & Fascists) are COWARDS.

    I live 5 minutes away from where this happened, to everyone saying that this was a hoax, you're an idiot and you need to get the facts before you say shit like that

    Lets close our eyes for a minute and imagine that ALL guns were gone and completely destroyed. That criminal would have made a bomb and killed them all ! Now imagine if a couple of the people had Concealed Carry Weapons and were trained to use them. First off, he probably would have been to scared to try something like that and if he did he would have died soon after the first shot. When no one has a Self Defense Weapon, plan on waiting 20 minutes for Law Enforcement or for the idiot to run out of ammunition.

    Local authorities have said the shooter posted on Facebook a pic of an AR-15 right before the shooting and that D.P. Kelley was wearing full tactical gear. They have said they are looking into if he was a member of any militia…

    What about the black guy that opened fire in a church in Tennessee. This was about a month ago and Noone reported it. He had killed 15 people including the pastor,but one of the guys in the church had a gun on him and shot back at him and killed him. What I can't understand is out of all of them 50 people Noone had a gun. I think something strange is going on here. He escaped and was getting away and just decided to shoot himself. Come on now who's going to belive that.
