Six Dead After Mass Shooting in Virginia

A shooter killed six people and injured four others at a Walmart in Virginia on Tuesday night. Police reported the shooter was a store employee, but they will not name the suspect until notifying next-of-kin.

  • The attack occurred around 10 p.m., an hour before closing.
  • The shooter, armed with a pistol, also killed himself.
  • This comes just a few days after a mass shooting in Colorado, where five people were killed and 25 injured.

There have been at least four mass shootings every week in 2022, according to the Washington Post. This recent massacre revived the cries for stricter gun control laws, but will more restrictions solve the problem?

The real solution: Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry wrote in 2019:

Many people don’t know it, but America’s problem with gun violence and crime was prophesied to occur in our day. … There is cause and effect. There is a cause for every problem. The cause of our violent and bloody crimes is that as a society we have rejected God’s law!
