    Bad, Bad, Bad---family attacked in Calif.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    Even in the lost state of California, arson is considered justifiable homicide.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    There is a special place in hell for anyone who hurts children. So sad to hear this.

    Just read this and definately prayers to the mother and childern that were able to survive. What bothered me was the comments and the anti's. Right back to if we only outlawed guns this wouldn't have happened. I know it's Cali and sort of expected some of it. Unfortunately we don't know the specifics to understand the whole story and if it would have been possible to defend themselves. Only hope at this point is the attacker points a weapon at the LEO when they find him and they save the state a trail and the cost to put this guy away for life.

    Sick and pathetic. That's about 60 miles from me...idk what to say other than if it were my house they wouldn't be searching for a suspect they would have found him dead in the house from a hail of gunfire and my kids would not be harmed. I'm sure it surprised them and there aren't many details but of the neighbors knew he was weird he should have been on their radar always.

    I can pray for the souls of the father and the dead child, and that the mother and the surviving children fight through this. As for this Desmond John Moses whose suspected of pulling the trigger...... I can only hope he's already taken care of himself by now.

    Turn them over to a ROK Army interrogation team. Those guys could get a rock to confess to anything.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I'd have a hard time calling the Police if that were me and my house!




    I think my shovel would get a workout though!

    Man found dead at scene of California shooting wore armor

    Too bad he didn't start with the bullet to the head.

    I saw this news story before work this morning and it's haunted me all day. Prayers to the family - the father who died shielding his children, the mother who despite getting shot in both legs carried her 4 yr old out to the street - he later died, the children injured - my heart just breaks.

    I may have misunderstood the story, but the way I'd read it was he and the family he shot both lived on the same property but in different homes. My understanding was he set fire to and was found in his own bungalow. He did the shooting in the other family's home - upset that he was being evicted but they weren't even the landlords. It's just a horrible story all around. I agree with socal, too bad he didn't just take himself out...
