    Gunman shoots 2 at White Settlement church before churchgoers return fire, killing him, officials say

    A gunman opened fire Sunday morning at a church in White Settlement, killing one person and critically wounding another before churchgoers fatally shot him, authorities said.

    Police in White Settlement, about eight miles west of Fort Worth, were called about 10 a.m. to the West Freeway Church of Christ at 1900 South Las Vegas Trail, where three people were treated for gunshot wounds.

    Two of the wounded people — one of whom was the gunman — died at a hospital, MedStar spokeswoman Macara Trusty said

    And some armed church goers stopped
    it from getting worse.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Last time I was there was in 67, how things have changed in over a half a century. One of my buddies at my missile base married a girl from there.

    And it is named White Settlement because the white settlers settled on Indian land.
    Talk about no imagination!
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Americans were much lazier about naming things back then.

    Had there not been armed parishioners, it would have been much, much worse. Dozens would have probably been killed. And here we have Paddy O'Rourke out there talking about gun laws in Texas aren't working.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.
