    Very sad; it doesn't look good for Gwatney, shot multiple times in the torso.

    Gwatney passed away at the hospital. Evidently the man who shot him was upset over losing his job..
    If you're not part of the solution,
    you're part of the problem.

    Still another senseless shooting by a lunatic.

    So very sad for Mr. Gwatney and his family.

    However, they said that moments after the shooting he pointed a handgun at the building manager at the nearby the Arkansas Baptist headquarters. He told the manager "I lost my job," said Dan Jordan, a Baptist convention official.
    We sure hear a lot about shootings that are linked to someone that just lost their job (if this is what's going on here). We live in a frightening world. Used to be when you lost your job, you went looking for a new one. These days people head to a mall or an office and start shooting. I don't get it.

    Thanks for posting this.
