Authorities say domestic dispute probable motive behind deadly Texas church shooting…

The tragic shooting that ended the lives of more than two dozen churchgoers Sunday may have been triggered by a domestic dispute involving the gunman and members of his family, authorities revealed.

“This was not racially motivated, it wasn’t over religious beliefs,” Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety revealed at a press briefing Monday. “There was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws.”

    This doesn’t seem to sit,a family squabble seems pretty weak as an excuse for butchery, there is more to this and we are not getting the straight goods.

      If it was a family squabble he would have killed family members. I’m calling bullshit. Someone get Captain Obvious on the phone.

    Apparently there was an in-law issue, and this was the mother-in-law’s church, but she wasn’t even there. Additionally, if he was only going after her, why shoot up everyone else including old folks and children?

  • I was one of the first to posit the same theory the other day, apparently before anyone else (I think these people must read BCF! 😉 ).

    But I stated it was pure speculation on my part until we get the facts. Now we have the facts — the killer was in fact militantly anti-Christian, not just a run-of-the-mill atheist most of whom would never consider slaughtering anyone for their beliefs.

      Also he had multiple flags that made him uneligible to own a gun, yet when the sporting goods store sent his application into ncics it csme back as clean.

      The same happened when he went to purchase body armour.

      Then he applied for a concealed permit and the state of texas rejected him because of his history of domestic abuse.

      So the real question is why did the feds midtakenly clear him for two seperate purchases?

      • And why was FBI immediately called in to take over the investigation if it was only a “domestic dispute”?

          They are now reporting a clerk in the military forgot to report his DD to FBI.


    See what you think. Sutherland Springs Church Shooting was a 3-letter agency federal contract to kill religious folk:
