Reports right now: More than twenty wounded, nearly 30 dead. "Unfathomable," says CNN"s Brian Steltler. Yeah, no. At this point Americans can fathom the shit out of this shit. Fathom? Yup. Do something about? Nope. Oh, and Texas passed an open carry law a couple of years back that made it legal to carry weapons into churches. Odds are there were plenty of "good guys with guns" in those pews.
And the trolls are already popping off on Twitter...
Reports out of Texas are devastating. The people of Sutherland Springs need our prayers right now.

May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.

Thoughts, prayers, God—why didn't anyone think of that before? If we'd only tried thoughts, prayers, and God after the last mass shooting then this one surely could've been prevented.
