This is what the second amendment is all about! It's a sad story, but I'm glad that guy was there and had a gun.
Everyone's calling Robert Engle a hero -- except for Robert Engle.Were it not for him, say police and witnesses, a gun-toting man's rampage in a Tennessee church would have been deadlier.Engle is an usher at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, near Nashville.As services were ending Sunday, the gunman -- identified as a former member of the congregation -- shot and killed Melanie Crow Smith, who was walking back to her car.The gunman, whom police ID'd as Emanuel Kidega Samson, then entered the church with a pair of pistols and started firing. Almost 50 people were inside and the gunman wounded six.
Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen... - Zbigniew Brezhinsky
