just in case, we want all wackos w/guns out there, to know that we are 'moderate.' yeah, that's it, 'moderate.'

the man who shot up a church, killing two and wounding several others, loved to read hannity, o'reilly and michael wiener. knoxville news-sentinel:

police found right-wing political books, brass knuckles, empty shotgun shell boxes and a handgun in the powell home of a man who said he attacked a church in order to kill liberals "who are ruining the country," court records show.

knoxville police sunday evening searched the levy drive home of jim david adkisson after he allegedly entered the tennessee valley unitarian universalist church and killed two people and wounded six others during the presentation of a children's musical…

adkisson targeted the church, still wrote in the document obtained by wbir-tv, channel 10, "because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in america with the aid of media outlets."
until authorities found the hardly-ever-right wing reading material, we just assumed the guy hated musicals.

inside the house, officers found "liberalism is a mental health disorder" by radio talk show host michael savage, "let freedom ring" by talk show host sean hannity, and "the o'reilly factor," by television talk show host bill o'reilly…

adkisson, 58, of powell wrote a four-page letter in which he stated his "hatred of the liberal movement," owen said. "liberals in general, as well as gays."
again, another reason to assume he hated musicals.

apparently, however, his ex-wife, who took a restraining order out on adkisson years ago, was a member of the church he targeted for his rampage, so his berzerking may have had a more personal reason than first suspected. uuworld:

the knoxville news standard reported monday that adkisson's ex-wife, liza anderson, had been a member of the church.

witnesses reported hearing three shots fired before adkisson was tackled by church members while trying to reload his 12-gauge, semiautomatic shotgun. mckendry, the first to be shot, may have been trying to stop the man, members said. police arrived within minutes.
let's see the nra use this as a reason to complain about anti-gun nuts...the church-goers stopped the guy and wrestled him to the ground without weapons.

but his reading list can't be ignored.

Tis what I clicked. It's funny, memeorandum linked to my blog twice and a couple of days and then never again. Wonder if it was something I said?

skippy,

I think you're right. He shot up this church and ranted about liberals for a reason (albeit stupid ones). Not that I want any place to be subject to a massacre, but, as you note, he picked this church for a reason.
Conservative bloggers are sadly, predictably making excuses or bloviating on this. One line of attack is that he was really anti-Christian, for which they're taking a comment by a single neighbor and running with it, and ignoring they guy's own statements.

Liberal wussies like TED KENNEDY and others want to have their own armed bodyguards while preventing ordanary citizens from being able to defend themselves just like a typical liberal

Someone can murder four cops and liberal stupidheads still blame guns eventhough the facts that the murderer was a convicted fellon on PAROLE maybe they should consiter banning parole instead of guns BUT LIBERALS HAVE WALNUT SIZED BRAINS AND THEY NEVER EVER USE THEM
