    "Michael Seth Marsh...the pastor of Russell Gap Baptist Church near Taylorsville....was armed with a shotgun, wearing camouflage and using an electronic coyote caller when he set up on the ground near a tree....Dunn, who lives in the area, told deputies that he heard coyotes screaming....He went to investigate and thought he saw something “brown and gray” that looked like a coyote....Dunn fired two shots with an AR-15, striking Marsh twice in the chest."

    No excuse for it. If you can't positively identify your target, don't pull the trigger.

    I think the answer to that would be "And the band believed believe it if you like,"

    Doesn't matter if he was wearing sky blue pink with purple poke-a-dots. The second of the four primary rules of gun safety is "KNOW YOUR TARGET - INCLUDING WHAT IS BEHIND YOUR TARGET AND ON EITHER SIDE OF YOUR TARGET!"

    Americans are GUN CRAZY! They are more interested in the "rights" of owning a gun to KILL, than the "RIGHT" for people to LIVE! I doubt if there is another nation on God's earth that has the same attitude as the USA towards weapons for murder available to every Tom, Dick and Harry, and Sally, etc!!!

    You really don't want to call all Americans names or make false accusations against us.

    Wrong again. We are a people who recognize our God given right to defend ourselves, or families, and our loved ones from danger. Just as the bible teaches. Law abiding Americans own and carry firearms to defend life, not to take it.

    First I will address the last untruth. Not "every Tom, Dick and Harry, and Sally" can legally own a firearm in the US. In order to legally purchase or posses of firearm in the US you must be 21 years of age (18 for a long gun), pass an FBI background check, have no record of felony convictions, or a history of lesser convictions involving domestic or other forms of violence, and not be an abuser of alcohol or drugs. In order to carry said firearm (in most states) the person must pass another FBI background check, a local records check, and be fingerprinted, plus take an approved gun safety class including knowledge of the laws concerning carrying and use of firearms.

    And you are correct regarding your first statement. The US is unique in that we are a nation of free thinking, rugged individualists who will defend our way of life against any and all who would try to dominate us.

    In the late 18th century, when your pathetic King George III tried to disarm us, we resisted. When he sent the equally pathetic British Army to enforce his dictatorial edicts, we kicked the Redcoats not only out of our country, but clear across the Atlantic.

    We did it again in 1812-1814 when the slow learning Brits tried it again, and got chased home with their tails between their legs (again).

    By the way, only 374 people were killed by rifles (all types, not just AR-15s) in 2016.

    But 750,000 babies in the US die by abortion every year.

    Save your outrage for the REAL slaughter.

    How many more humans that God LOVES will need to be murdered, before anything is ever done? Name me another country that is like YOURS when it comes to killing on a mass scale? The fact of the matter is, that we British gave your country the Christian Gospel! You made the mistake to remove us, and you end up with islam, with super size mosques in "Bible-belt" states, and mad gun laws! Face the facts that the USA is indeed unique when it comes to the availability of "weapons of mass destruction", that seems to be in the hands of everyone. Regardless of your many "checks" countless of weapons are in the wrong hands. Just admit that your country has gone mad, just look at your "president", says it all :Biggrin

    He was caught and will be tried.

    You have GOT to be kidding! List of countries by intentional homicide rate - Wikipedia

    LOL! ROFLOL! Anglo-Catholicism is NOT the Christian Gospel.

    No, it is the UK that allows Sharia law to overrule British law, have more mosques than any other country in Europe. And our gun laws are what makes us strong.

    LOL! ROFLOL! "Weapons of mass destruction" in the hands of "everyone?" Who has a Nuke? Who has Biological weapons? Who has Chemical weapons.

    Yeah. How are those "gun control" laws working? Are all the crooks turning in their guns? LOL!

    He is a lot better than those perverts running your Socialist hellhole. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    "Gave us the Gospel"? Christians came here because Britain was PERSECUTING the Gospel. And Islam? Who is being over-run by them? Whose capitol city has a Muslim mayor? If it weren't for us and our "guns", y'all would be speaking German right now. Confused Won't be too much longer and y'all will be speaking Arabic...at least the ones who keep their heads.

    Can you tell me which country spews out the most violent, sexual and debased movies and TV programs? Over 90% that are on our TV's and cinemas that are pure FILTH, come from the USA! Don't support your country for all of the wrong reasons. I readily admit that the UK is a country now steeped in evil and wickedness, because it has departed from the Lord and His Word.
