    Charleston Church Shooting Stirs Up Memories for Fort Worth's Wedgwood Baptist Church


    Nearly 16 years ago, Wedgwood Baptist Church in Fort Worth dealt with a similar tragedy to the one that played out Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina when a gunman stormed into a Wednesday night prayer service and opened fire.

    In 1999, there were 500 kids -- most of them teens -- inside the Wedgwood Baptist Church sanctuary when a 47-year-old man ran through the door and started shooting.

    And we should not forget the Ft. Hood killings. Not church, but still a terrible moment in American history.

    It was a "hate crime" , as well. The killer hated Baptists.

    Of course it wasn't fashionable back then to make some killings worse than others.

    Then there's also "Ruby Ridge" and the "Waco, TX, 'incidents.'" :tonofbricks:

    And how does that relate to the church shootings?

    Did a lone gunment go to either and kill several people?

    Try to stay on topic. It's not that hard.
