Breaking: Easter Weekend Mass Shooting


( Breaking Now: Even on the holiest weekend of the year, when billions around the globe celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, Americans are not safe from the violence of mass shootings that is a plague on the nation.

In a South Carolina mall, a mass shooting left more than a dozen injured as police attempt to sort out what took place and why.

As the Washington Times reports in “Police arrest suspect in South Carolina mall shooting”:

“Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a shooting at a busy shopping mall in South Carolina’s capital on Saturday that left 14 people injured.

“Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook said 22-year-old Jewayne M. Price, who was one of three people initially detained by law enforcement as a person of interest, remains in police custody and is expected to be charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol.

“Fourteen people were injured during the shooting at Columbiana Centre, Holbrook said in a news release Saturday. The victims ranged in age from 15 to 73.”

As one father said of the shooting while he and his family were in the mall’s food court:

“‘My biggest thing was – and not to sound selfish – was to make sure that our family was OK and to get them out safely because this is not something that we love to do for Easter weekend.'”

Yes, it is a safe bet that no American family wants to find itself in the midst of a mass shooting on Easter weekend or any other day of the year.
