The man who fatally shot two people at a White Settlement Church on Sunday before being killed by church security has been identified as a 43-year-old Keith Thomas Kinnunen, a River Oaks man with a criminal record, according to two law enforcement sources. Kinnunen is believed to have been wearing a disguise, including a fake beard, when he stood up, pulled a shotgun from his clothing and opened fire inside the church, killing 64-year-old Anton Wallace, a church deacon from Fort Worth, and 67-year-old Richard White, of River Oaks.

River Oaks TX is small town surrounded by Ft Worth, not the River Oaks subdivision in Houston where all the Energy Moguls live large.

In many training scenarios, a shooter with a shotgun is one of the worst. I now understand better why the church security officer used a head shot. I have long ago decided that if I ever run into a self defense situation where the criminal is armed with a shotgun, I will go for a head shot. In most other situations, a normal upper chest "center of mass" shot is the best bet. But, that might not be instantly incapacitating and with a shotgun, instant incapacitation is required.

Either shoot them in the head or the crotch. Introduction finished... Now sir put down the gun or it's going downhill from here! Chest shots are no longer viable unless you have a rifle. Body armor is too easy to buy and use and will defeat any handgun round! Keep pulling the trigger until you are empty and it is down and done!

At that distance, the head shot was luck or providence. It's not like Jack Wilson was that fast to respond, much less ascertain the threat and go for the head. I say Mozambique drill at the least, more like empty the mag.

I am amazed at the grace under extraordinary pressure to deliver a head shot (!) in those circumstances. The security hero is a real mensch. I’ve been shooting handguns a longtime, but only at paper silhouettes and can’t imagine the skill and determination required to take down the perp. God must have given the hero the assignment at that time. On another note, how the heck did the perpetrator get a shotgun into the church ?

Does it make sense to anybody that a White Supremeist choose to kill in a predominately white church? Does that fit the usual racist logic of the Kneepads? Somehow, I think this is pure liberal Kneepad BS to paint a narrative that fits the usual Kneepad bias and not reality.

Musician Linda Ronstadt drew parallels between the election of President Trump and the rise of the Nazis in Germany during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN. "You have read a lot about the Weimar Republic in Germany, and you sort of see great parallels between then and now," Cooper said in a preview clip released Monday. "Well, great parallels," said Ronstadt. "There were a lot of chances. Hitler rose to power; there were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn't speak out. And the industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office. And of course, he was not controllable."

Recent elections in Virginia have placed the Virginia government within arm's length of widespread gun confiscation. Around eighty-four counties and cities throughout the Commonwealth have pledged to ignore and resist these measures. Some Virginia elected officials have called for the National Guard to carry out such confiscation, which would imply the arrest and disarmament of local officials who get in the way. Governor Northam has stopped short of adopting such an idea, but he will not rule it out. Additional stories indicate that the government will disable internet and telephone access to affected areas during the crackdown.

On December 29, Breitbart News reported that a gunman at West Freeway Church of Christ opened fire, only to be shot dead by an armed parishioner. Jack Wilson, the good guy with a gun, was one of many parishioners who drew their guns to fight back when the heinous attack began.

But there is no question Jack Wilson acted heroically as a church volunteer security guard when he killed a killer in the sanctuary of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, on Sunday. Wilson, a deeply experienced firearms instructor, was legally carrying and took down a gunman with a single shot.
