Updated: During service Sunday unarmed Christians were massacred near San Antonio, Texas by Atheist Devin Patrick Kelley. Now 26 are dead and 24 injured in Sutherland Springs. Kelley’s in-laws attend the church, but were not there at the time.
Interrupting the slaughter of innocents, an armed neighbor engaged Kelley who then ran. Neighbors pursued Kelley’s vehicle until it crashed. Police found Kelley dead – the killing shot apparently by his own hand.
Kelley was convicted by an Air Force general court-martial on two charges of domestic assault against his wife and step-son, which legally would have barred him from purchasing firearms. He spent 12 months in prison at Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in California, after which he was reduced to the lowest rank and given a “Bad Conduct Discharge” in 2014.
The Air Force will conduct a review of it’s criminal record policies. Kelley is reported to be a creepy, weird outcast who preached Atheism online.
While demonic Democrats demagogue for gun control, many Christians thank God there was a neighbor who owned a gun and engaged the shooter to stop the slaughter. The answer to random acts of violence, increasing numbers of people suggest, is more open and concealed carry.
Former classmates of the shooter said he was a proselytizing Atheist and antagonistic outcast who declared Christians were stupid, the Daily Mail reported. Apparently, Kelley’s Atheist morality includes violence and murder – domestic and public. Victim ages range from 18 months to 70+ years.
“He was always talking about how people who believe in God we’re (sic) stupid and trying to preach his atheism,” former New Braunfels High School classmate Nina Rose Nava posted on Facebook. She said she was in “complete shock” after learning Kelley was the killer. “I legit just deleted him off my fb cause I couldn’t stand his post.”
Facebook user Christopher Leo Longoria responded, saying, “I removed him off FB for those same reasons! He was being super nagtive (sic) all the timd (sic),” the news outlet reported.
Another classmate, Patrick Boyce, told the Daily Mail, “He was the first atheist I met. He went Air Force after high school, got discharged but I don’t know why.” He said Kelley seemed depressed lately. “He had a kid or two, fairly normal,” he said. “I was just shocked. Shill (sic) haven’t quite processed how he could have done that.”
