Another Texas Shooting

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 3, 2019

         ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER SHOOTING. A MAN IN ODESSA, TEXAS WENT WILD AFTER BEING STOPPED BY A POLICE OFFICER AND SHOT AND KILLED SEVEN PEOPLE, WOUNDING 21 OTHERS.

         WHY IS THIS HAPPENING SO OFTEN IN AMERICA? THIS LATEST SHOOTING IS THE SECOND IN TEXAS IN A MONTH. THE EARLIER ONE WAS AT A WAL MART IN EL PASO.  

         THERE ARE MANY THEORIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO STOP THESE HORRIBLE ACTS. THE LEFT WANTS MORE LAWS RESTRICTING GUNS. THE RIGHT THINKS ARMED CITIZENS AND MORE SECURITY GUARDS ARE THE BEST DETERRANT. NEITHER WOULD HAVE STOPPED THIS LONE GUNMAN, WHO ALSO HIJACKED A MAIL TRUCK TO CONTINUE HIS RANDOM SHOOTING.

         FOR THOSE OF US WHO BELIEVE SCRIPTURE, THIS VERSE COMES TO MIND. IT’S PROVERBS 29:18 – “WHERE THERE IS NO REVELATION THE PEOPLE CAST-OFF RESTRAINT; BUT BLESSED IS THE ONE WHO HEEDS WISDOM’S INSTRUCTION.”

         THIS IS NOT TO SAY THOSE KILLED OR WOUNDED IN TEXAS WERE EVIL. PERHAPS MANY WERE CHRISTIANS. IT IS TO SAY THAT WHEN A CULTURE TOLERATES EVERYTHING, INCLUDING 60 MILLION ABORTIONS AND OTHER THINGS GOD CALLS ABOMINATIONS THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES, BOTH TO THE INNOCENT AND GUILTY. THINK ABOUT IT AND THEN PRAY. I’M CAL THOMAS.
