Is it me or do these type of things happen far more often under a Rat president?

I dunno... these rampages are typically followed up with renewed calls for gun control.

It seems we are suffering from a rash of folks coming unhinged from their senses. Possibly due to the fact there is a “darkness” over the land.

These things always happen in April too. I swear that April is the King of shooting rampages. Must be the crappy weather or something.

People who do not have the light of Christ are far more likely to let the darkness overcome them and do evil things.

Pierce Co. is a bit less liberal than King Co. I like how the NYT headline read “5 children found dead in home near Seattle”. Idiots. Graham is closer to Tacoma than Seattle. Hell, it’s closer to Olympia than it is to Seattle.

But you’d think liberals driving some one crazy would end up getting the liberals killed, not some kids.

They have updated the article so it has some meat to it now.

GRAHAM, Wash. – A father apparently shot to death five of his children, ages 7 to 16, at their mobile home and then killed himself at a casino miles away, police said Saturday.

Ed Troyer, a spokesman for the Pierce County Sheriff, called it a domestic violence situation and a murder-suicide.

"We believe they all died of gunshot wounds," Troyer said.

Auburn police found the father, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his car near the Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn, about 30 miles south of Seattle. Pierce County deputies checked the mobile home, which is about 20 miles southeast of the casino, and found four of the children dead in their beds and the fifth in the bathroom.

The mother of the victims was not at home, Troyer said.

He said investigators believe the husband and wife were not estranged.

<< People who do not have the light of Christ are far more likely to let the darkness overcome them and do evil things. >>

I totally agree with that...

Prayers going up for the mother ~ I hope she also has multiple friends surrounding her to help her through this.
