    I wonder if the MSM would ignore these shootings if they were some place besides Africa.

  2. All Christians should be packing firearms in Nigeria…

  3. Eeyore says:

    I agree with 80% of that. Its the last 20% I would lose.

    ‘All Christians should be packing firearms’ would be the way I look at it.

  4. Richard says:

    I’m with you Eeyore, all Christians should be packing firearms, the crime rated in all nations would go down, and the Moslems would think twice about attacking us.
