    The relevant statute is Texas PC 46.035 (b) (6), which prohibits concealed or open carry in a house of worship. However, the building must be posted in accordance with 30:06 OR 30:07 for it to be valid. Here is a link to the law. I found it a bit confusing because they don't strike out the parts that have been repealed, so you have to make sure of the effective date.

    Rob or someone else can check my understanding of the law.


    Someone else mentioned a Court Martial. He received a Dishonorable Discharge and thus was a PP. At least it would seem so.

    Retired female LAPD cop,on tv said it was a Ruger bushmaster mini 14. I think she’s needs a lesson on guns.

    She's quoting what the "FBI" analyst on CNN said. He also said it was a .223, which means 5.56 NATO. I'm nitpicky, but facts be damned.

    First Facebook post in months was that article.

    The mouth breathing liberals that fill my feed with crap will love to see their counterfeit news network proclaiming a good guy with a gun stopped a shooting in a gun free zone.

    In the end it will always fall on "we the people" to protect our rights. Are we up to the task? I sure hope so however I'm not so sure. FIFY

    They're claiming it was a Ruger rifle, which means actual serial number.

    If this is the least accurate thing said by the talking nitwits on TV, we'll be doing well. I bet Shemp Smith can't wait to come in and bash guns, conservatives, and POTUS.

    I'd like to know this guy's voting record. The fact that this is the weekend ANTIFA pledged to start a civil war by shooting conservatives is too much of a coincidence.

    Seeing other reports that an armed neighbor of the church confronted the killer and shot him, before he was able to flee the scene.

    So this makes a little under 100 people shot and killed and over what 600 injured at typically conservative events in the past month?

    Grabbed these off 4Chan /pol/... I have no idea if they're authentic, fake or even the right Devin Kelly, but
    I'm leaning towards legit.

    Looking at http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/05/us/texas-church-shooting-resident-action/index.html I see typical CNN anti-gun bias:

    1. The headline of the article makes no reference to the citizen chasing him using a firearm

    2. No mention of the good guy's firearm until the 4th paragraph

    3. The article makes no mention of the type of rifle the hero used, but does mention the miscreant used a Ruger "Assault rifle". To those not knowing the details, the article gives the impression of a Texan running out with his bolt action scoped hunting rifle with a wide leather sling rather than a tacticool EBR with a 30 round mag.

    CNN is only mentioning what they feel they have to in order not to look like idiots. The article is full of "minimize any good news about an ordinary unbadged citizen with an AR".

    Listening to FOX, they have guests on who say confiscation will not work, there are too many guns, they are saying 500,000,000, seems about 2 too high...

    But if they really wanted people to turn them in all they would need to do is to pass a law saying all guns are illegal and if you get caught with one, then it is life in prison, many people would turn them in, especially in Mass where they know what you have at the FRB., sort of like CA did with Barretts, register then make them illegal, or MASS did with bumpstocks.

    Or they would do it for Semi-auto's, I have more bolts and revolvers than semi's, that is if I actually owned any guns! And what would the do with antiques and BP guns?

    There were over 300 million when Obama got elected. 500 million is not much of stretch.

    IF it's substantiated, don't hold your breath to see it in MSM.

    Yeah, I'm hoping someone screen grabbed Facebook before they took the profile down. Would be very interesting if he had been active in Austin antifa events as claimed
