Tennessee Church Shooting Spurs Anti-Self Defense Talk From Senate Candidate

Now when I commented on the tragic church shooting in Knoxville, Tenn., my statement was that it was too bad none of the parishioners took advantage of existing state law.

That the means existed for people to defend themselves, but the Unitarian Universalist doctrine is anti-gun/pro-social change (whatever the latter means). I never said to loosen existing gun control in Tennessee. Just that they should not willfully put their congregants in harms way by turning the church into a self-imposed victim zone.

On the other hand, it didn't take long for some politicians to use the tragedy as a springboard for more gun control.

Op-Ed News has the piece authored by "progressive" candidate for the U.S. Senate, Chris Lugo.
