    The least this fucker couldn have done is shoot up a WESTBORO baptist church.

    so i guess now they're saying that just the pastor was shot, and the 2 that subdued that guy were stabbed
    ugh

    at least they didnt get shot? i dunno how much of consolation that is

    Honestly though, who shoots a man of god? D: I can't imagine someone shooting my first pastor. He was a good guy. All donating his time to the old folk's home and the animal shelter and praying for the Vikings to win in church... in the middle of the sermon.

    tdot that oddly poignant in the context.

    of course this whole thread is just incredibly odd, I'm not really sure what has driven us all insane.

    he's fucking retarded because he thinks muslims are crazier than baptists.

    FUCK NO THEY AREN'T.

    sorry to hear about your pastor, man. if somebody were to harm or even fail to hold open the door for the man that baptised me, they wouldn't live to see sunrise.

    you'd be surprised

    one of the biggest demographics in the city i live in is Asian college students. throwing numbers at them would probably cause them to sit down with their calculators, giving all the time i would need to unnecessarily try to run from Asian college students

    i'm pretty sure the stereotypical college asian student would probably walk the other direction from you.

    now that mongol fuckhead that yelled at me in the rec center? he'd put up a fight, he was rather large. i'd like to brain him with a dumbbell

    a couple other points about this

    this means that out of like 150 people that saw it happen, say like, 20% of those were children

    so like 30 kids saw a man, and one they i imagine respected and gave a shit about, die brutally in front of them

    also, apparently of the 2 that stopped the fucker, 1 was doa?
    shit.

    MARYVILLE, Ill. – Illinois State Police say the pastor gunned down at a church in a St. Louis suburb used a Bible to deflect the first of four rounds fired during his Sunday sermon.

    not surprising if you know anything about ballistics!

    a .45 acp round will generally go about 4 1/4 inches into a book.

    depending on how thick the book is, the better chance you have. now do i recommend strapping on thick text books to deflect bullets? fuck no, that's stupid. but let's say you got guns in your house and you're afraid of gun play in the home and you also have a small child that could be in a line of fire. line the most likely wall with a bookshelf, anchor it in, fill it with phonebooks and college text books. better safe than sorry to have stray rounds going about.

    a 9mm will penetrate further than the .45 will, and a .30-06 i believe will go through 20(30?) inches of book.

    so if it was a thick bible, i certainly believe it.

    Thickness ain't got nothing to do with it.

    Surface area is the issue here. The fact that a dude shot at him four times and he managed to get the bible in the way of each of those shots is what's impressive.

    He only got it in the way of the first round.
    used a Bible to deflect the first of four rounds

    But shit, that's still pretty impressive to me. D:
