This is the sort of person gun grabbers are trying to lump in with law-abiding gun owners.
He’s a sadistic degenerate.
Is it any more fair to use this guy as an example of ‘all gun owners’ than it is to hold him up as an example of ‘all militant atheists’?
That won’t stop the press from trying.
If the OTHER horror-stories about the killer haven’t been proof that the system we have is good, but it was not properly implemented to screen this scumbag out, let’s add THIS to the list.
We already knew he was a domestic abuser. That’s a big warning sign. That alone should have precluded him from lawful gun ownership.
A large portion of the mass shootings in the U.S. in recent years have roots in domestic violence against partners and family members. Depending on how you count, it could be upwards of 50 percent.
We know the Texas gunman, Devin Patrick Kelley, was court-martialed for assaulting his wife and their young child in 2012, although this information apparently was not included in the formal government database that tracks such things.
We have learned he was a pedophile — even acting out on that while he was married.
See: ‘Monster Took My Virginity At 13’
So, clearly he ALREADY did not feel constrained by any of the laws that govern the rest of us.
But now we are learning about his sadism, too. Whether or not he was –strictly speaking — ‘mentally ill’ we DO know he was one sick bastard.

The Texas church shooter once confessed he’d been buying dogs on Craigslist for ‘target practice’ and even bragged that he’d managed to purchase guns online while he was locked up inside a mental hospital.
Years before he walked into a small town church and opened fire, killing 26 and injuring 20, Devin Kelley, 26, obsession with guns and a morbid falsification with mass shooters, according to his former Air Force colleagues.
Jessika Edwards, who as a staff sergeant was Kelley’s superior at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, said he would often ‘make jokes about wanting to kill somebody’ and once claimed that he’d been buying animals online [CraigsList] to use as shooting practice targets.
…But she said that their conversations took a sinister turn and Kelley even once praised Dylann Roof, the gunman who mowed down nine people during bible study at a South Carolina church.
…’He would say ‘isn’t it cool? Did you watch the news?” Edwards said. ‘He would say he wished he had the nerve to do it, but all he would be able to do is kill animals.’
Were there signs?
You could say so. Which leads us to this question… ‘Should Families of the Slain in TX church sue the Air Force for Negligence?
Something to think about, isn’t it?
The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
