    about the situation in TN

    On July 27, 2008, a politically motivated[2][3] fatal shooting took place at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee, United States. Motivated by a desire to kill liberals and Democrats, gunman Jim David Adkisson fired a shotgun at members of the congregation during a youth performance of a musical, killing two people and wounding seven others.
    I suspect the driveway shooting was also inspired by the general build up of fear by Hate Radio, FAUX, NRA, etc. but was more likely a murder of opportunity. (doesn't that sound nice!)
    While Mr Adkission in TN specifically targeted a group he saw as liberal.  Much more premedicated.
