Politics and the Mass Shooting in Charleston, SC

I've spent the past several days getting over jet lag, along with helping my siblings long-distance settle issues surrounding my mom's death.

A lot's happened.

While murder, rape and torture are everyday occurrences under ISIS's rule, mass killings inside the Ramparts of Civilization still shock us.  And justifiably so.

Three days ago, a gunman opened fire inside the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.

A day later the suspect, Dylan Storm Roof, was arrested.

Yesterday, he appeared in court.

Of course, while some of the relatives of the victims offer Dylan forgiveness, leftists pounced on the issue of gun control.

Our Dear Leader went so far as to say "This type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries."

Such rhetoric will continue despite the fact that none of Obama's initiatives would have prevented the shooting.

In the wake of this tragic mass murder, Mark Styen complained about the politicization of everything.

Regardless of the politics, my thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of the victims.
