Do you think the recent Texas shooting is an act of terrorism?
No, this is not terrorism, this was a case of what seems to be domestic violence. He had issues of domestic violence when he was in the military and he was sending his mother in law texts that were derogatory in nature. Just because someone goes into a place and shoots it up does not mean its terrorism. That word is being used so much that it is losing its meaning.
Not until motive can be determined
Definitely anti-Christian terrorism, but I don’t know “pro-what.”
Depends on your definition of terrorism. Some will say that it has to be politically charged, but I think this intentionally isolates Islamic Extremists. Terrorism to me is a mass act of violence that seeks to terrify people, therefore, to me this seems like terrorism.
I think there is not enough info.
Well it’s a white 26 year old male according to the last article I read so the right will sell it as a lone wolf who went crazy and the conversation will revolve around mental health. I didn’t find anything about motive yet so we really don’t know.
No information known.
Not enough info yet but given it was a church under attack, a religion based motive is possible which imo would make it terrorism.
Most likely an act of assholism.
I don’t know that we can make that assumption in the general sense but a woman on cnn said rumor had spread and it’s someone known in the town but had no idea why they’d do this.
Aren’t all mass shootings terrorism of a sort?
No, terrorism has to have a specific political agenda. Random acts of violence, even lots of violence, aren’t terrorism if they’re not political.
Okay sounds good
Depends why it was done
We know nothing about the shooter so we can't determine if he had a political motive or not
I don’t know enough about it to answer with certainty.
I think he was just a nut....like the Las Vegas shooter.
They're all nuts, no?
The Muslim ones aren't nuts. They do it because of their religion. But white people that do violence, they're just crazy.
Las Vegas shooter, or shooters? Many witnesses say there were more than one. At least two of those witnesses have since died in incidents "apparently" unrelated to the shootings.
If so, it would be the 13th worldwide terror attack in November 2017. Seriously: there have already been more than 150 deaths from Terror this month.
Possibly. Dylan Roof was politically motivated so it's quite possible this guy was too.
