A senior law enforcement source told CNN the suspect's father had recently bought him a .45-caliber gun for his 21st birthday.

If he says it, it will be because it is true.
Witnesses say the gunman stood up and said he was there "to shoot black people," a law enforcement official said. The shooter is also thought to have used a handgun, according to the official

Re: Shooting at Charleston SC Church

I wonder if the NRA will recommend that pastors start carrying a gun in church?

It's a good thing he won't find any black people in prison, so he should be safe there.

I'm sure he's proud of it because it's a Nazi haircut.

So glad they already caught this idiot. It's just sad to think about what the people in that church had to go through in this ordeal.

I look forward to the media's frantic attempts to frame this story in terms of mental health while dancing around the issues brought up by calling it what it really is: domestic terrorism carried out by a white supremacist.

Because of this tragedy the Confederate Flag in front of the South Carolina State House will be flown at half-staff.

The presence or absence of an armed, law abiding citizen can be the difference between this and this.

Those two incidents were pretty much identical, except in the first incident, 12 people were murdered, and in the second incident, zero people were murdered, because an armed, law abiding citizen prevented such a massacre.

If you think I am wrong about this - if you have some other explanation for why 12 people were murdered in the first incident while zero people were murdered in the second incident - please explain it, because I would like to hear it.

(And before you point out that one of the 12 people murdered in France was a police officer, I would like to point out that the police who were sent to stop the killer were unarmed.)

I think it's already been pointed out to you that those cops weren't "sent" to stop the killer, they were more or less bike cops who were in the area.

Or in this case, if handguns were illegal, chances are this bowl-haircuted fuck wouldn't have gotten a .45 for his birthday.

The last shooter that got a gun as a gift from a parent massacred 20 babies and 6 adults.

Can't wait for Obama's political jabs.

Anyone want to take a guess?

Charleston church shooting suspect Dylann Roof captured; victims identified

June 18, 2015

"Any death of this sort is a tragedy; any shooting involving multiple victims is a tragedy,” President Obama said at the White House. “There is something particularly heartbreaking about a death happening in a place in which we seek solace and we seek peace, in a place of worship.”

"At some point we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries."

In other words, Obama claims these incidents never happened:
