The King James Version (KJV), also known as the King James Bible (KJB) or simply the Authorized Version (AV), is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, begun in 1604 and completed as well as published in 1611 under the sponsorship of James VI and I.[a][b] The books of the King James Version include the 39 books of the Old Testament, an intertestamental section containing 14 books of the Apocrypha, and the 27 books of the New Testament. The translation is noted for its “majesty of style”, and has been described as one of the most important books in English culture[2] and a driving force in the shaping of the English-speaking world.[3]

he title page to the 1611 first edition of the Authorized Version of the Bible by Cornelis Boel shows the Apostles Peter and Paul seated centrally above the central text, which is flanked by Moses and Aaron. In the four corners sit Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, authors of the four gospels, with their symbolic animals. The rest of the Apostles (with Judas facing away) stand around Peter and Paul. At the very top is the Tetragrammaton “יְהֹוָה” written with Hebrew diacritics.

Welcome to our discussion. Do you believe people should be able to murder a child in an abortion like this in the picture above?

The total abortions conducted in 2008 in these 25 states with the most abortions is over 1 million.

Some argue it’s their body and can do what they want. But it’s their babies body really not their body? It’s a separate entity with in their own body. But it’s not apart of their body. Especially after the baby is born.

Being a citizen of the United States of America. What does that mean?

When your born a citizen of the United States of America. You give up certain rights. Just like each State had to inorder to form a more perfect union. A good example is the coining of money. As an individual you can’t print your own money nor can you reprint Federal Reserve notes. As citizens we agree to obey Federal State and local laws. And give up certain freedoms for the common good.

What does citizens mean?

    So a good citizen would be a person who up holding the Constitution of the United States of America. A good citizen would want to try to immolate the values of our founders of our country. Like George Washington, Dr Benjamin Franklin, and others.

    And would fight against anything that would violate our freedoms or the Constitution of the United States of America!

    The powers of every government are only of three kinds the legislative, executive and judicial. This natural division founded in Moral Order.

    To secure the blessings of Liberty to themselves and their ” posterity ” !

    If your murdering your aborting your children your not securing the blessings of Liberty for your or our

    ” posterity “! Thus violating the Constitution.

    All unborn children should be considered freemen even before they are born. And have rights to live Liberty etc.

    The Government get off the hook for having to provide for the general welfare of it’s unborn children. One of the grave things to happen is to allow immigration to run rapid to make up the deficits of a declining society has a direct cost to our sovereignty. And to our current system government! Too many abortions can lead the influx of immigration surrendering our own liberties moral judgment to new societies. And they inherit our ” posterity”!

    You cannot have life Liberty Justice of the very fabric of life has been destroyed. We destroy every seed in the field will we go hungry? Yes we may even starve to death.

    We all know that liberal judges were put on the supreme Court and else where so they could pass unconstitutional laws. A flaw in our government system. While everybody was asleep they flooded our Courts of liberal judges all the way to the supreme Court so they could pass laws that were against the Constitution and the will of the general public.

    Flooded our Courts with liberal attorneys. To fight against murdering of an unborn child.

    Unfortunately large corporations support for the murder of the unborn child. Here is a few.

And many more that give indirectly or have came out and said they support abortions!

Once in office these immigrants from other nations may not like our constitution and demand changes. Now they have all the power there will be nothing in stopping them.

Morality. I was speaking to a person who believed in the woman’s right to choose. He said that a baby and the woman is like a dead deer it’s stupid like a dead deer or animal. It’s not human. I was shocked to think that anybody could think that I baby no matter how small it is I think that it’s like an animal or a dead animal but these are some of the teachings that the anti abortions teach their people. That the babies just dum like a deer. It’s not human until it’s born.

And my view someday they will find out from God that every baby is precious and abortion is pure evil. Won’t they be surprised!

So I pray that those will see the light and stop abortion for God will bring his judgment upon us for the things that we do wrong as a nation.

The Bible teaches us that over and over again the nation gets wicked God intervenes the nation gets sacked people become slaves cuz they’re evil and starts over again. Mary stop this portion now before God gets angry against this great nation United States of America I wouldn’t lose our freedoms.

Primary nationwide abortion statistics for the United States are available from two sources—privately from the Guttmacher Institute (AGI) and publicly from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Guttmacher’s numbers, published every three years, come from direct surveys of all known and suspected abortion providers in the United States. The CDC numbers, published annually, are derived from actual counts of every abortion reported to state health departments. Unfortunately, California, Maryland, and New Hampshire do not publicly report abortion totals. As such, Guttmacher’s abortion numbers are more complete, but they are approximations. Since only 58% of queried providers responded to Guttmacher’s latest survey, abortion totals were estimated for the remaining 42%. These estimates utilized in-state health department data and “service patterns of other abortion-providing facilities in the community.” Whereas the CDC numbers may be too low, Guttmacher’s numbers may be too high. The information on this page has been gleaned from both sources to provide an overview of the frequency and demography of abortion. Additional secondary statistics have been taken from the National Abortion Federation’s (NAF) 2009 teaching text on abortion, Management of Unintended and Abnormal Pregnancy: Comprehensive Abortion Care.

ANNUAL ABORTION STATISTICS

Based on the latest state-level data, approximately 879,000 abortions took place in the United States in 2017—down from approximately 892,000 abortions in 2016 and 913,000 abortions in 2015.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, an estimated 926,240 abortions took place in the United States in 2014—down from 1.06 million in 2011, 1.21 million abortions in 2008, 1.2 million in 2005, 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36 million in 1996. From 1973 through 2011, nearly 53 million legal abortions occurred in the U.S (AGI).

In 2014, approximately 19% of U.S. pregnancies (excluding spontaneous miscarriages) ended in abortion.1

According to the United Nations’ 2013 report, only nine countries in the world have a higher reported abortion rate than the United States. They are: Bulgaria, Cuba, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Sweden, and Ukraine.*

*Though the UN lists China’s official abortion rate at 19.2, China’s actual abortion rate is likely much higher. According to China’s 2010 census, there were approximately 310 million women of reproductive age in the country. An estimated 13-23 million abortions happen annually in China, resulting in an adjusted abortion rate of 41.9-74.2. The abortion rate is the number of abortions per 1,000 women aged 15-44.

In 2014, the highest percentage of pregnancies were aborted in the District of Columbia (38%), New York (33%), and New Jersey (30%). The lowest percentage of pregnancies were aborted in Utah (5%), South Dakota (4%), and Wyoming (<2%). (AGI abortion data + CDC birth data).

In 2015, approximately 35% of all pregnancies in New York City (excluding spontaneous miscarriages) ended in abortion (CDC).

The annual number of legal induced abortions in the United States doubled between 1973 and 1979, and peaked in 1990. There was a slow but steady decline through the 1990’s. Overall, the number of annual abortions decreased by 6% between 2000 and 2009, with temporary spikes in 2002 and 2006 (CDC).

From 2014 to 2015, the number, rate2 and ratio3 of reported abortions all decreased by 2% (CDC).

WHO HAS ABORTIONS?

In 2015, unmarried women accounted for 86% of all abortions (CDC).

Among married women, 4% of pregnancies currently end in abortion. Among unmarried women, 27% of pregnancies end in abortion (CDC).

Women in their 20s accounted for the majority of abortions in 2015 and had the highest abortion rates (CDC).

Adolescents under 15 years obtained .03% of all 2015 abortions; women aged 15–19 years accounted for less than 10% (CDC).

Women living with a partner to whom they are not married account for 25% of abortions but only about 10% of women in the population (NAF).

In 2015, women who had not aborted in the past accounted for 56% of all abortions; women with one or two prior abortions accounted for 35%, and women with three or more prior abortions accounted for 8% (CDC).

Among women who obtained abortions in 2015, 41% had no prior live births; 45% had one or two prior live births, and 14% had three or more prior live births (CDC).

Among white women, 10% of pregnancies currently end in abortion. Among black women, 28% of pregnancies end in abortion (CDC).

Black women were more than 3.5 times more likely to have an abortion in 2015 than white women (CDC).

The abortion rate of non-metropolitan women is about half that of women who live in metropolitan counties (NAF).

The abortion rate of women with Medicaid coverage is three times as high as that of other women (NAF).

In 2014, 30% of aborting women identified themselves as Protestant and 24% identified themselves as Catholic (AGI).

WHY DO ABORTIONS OCCUR?

In 2004, the Guttmacher Institute anonymously surveyed 1,209 post-abortive women from nine different abortion clinics across the country. Of the women surveyed, 957 provided a main reason for having an abortion. This table lists each reason and the percentage of respondents who chose it.

Chapter 2
The Creation is completed—God rests on the seventh day—The prior spirit creation is explained—Adam and Eve are placed in the Garden of Eden—They are forbidden to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil—Adam names every living creature—Adam and Eve are married by the Lord.


1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.


2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.


3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.


4 ¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,


5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.


6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.


7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.


8 ¶ And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.


9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.


10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.


11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;


12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.


13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.


14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.


15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.


16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:


17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


18 ¶ And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.


19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.


20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.


21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;


22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.


23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.


24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Why is it called the first five book of Moses? Did not Adam and Eve write anything? Or their descents? Where is there work. Are those works still out there?


God creates this earth and its heaven and all forms of life in six days—The creative acts of each day are described—God creates man, both male and female, in His own image—Man is given dominion over all things and is commanded to multiply and fill the earth.


Where did the word Genesis come from?


1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


Did God create the heavens and earth spirituality first? With some kind of spiritual matter then made it become our reality? Perhaps another dimension of time space? It mentioned heaven. Referring to the Stars and the planets above? Or just our earthly globe?If it was talking about outer space then the earth and outer space was made at the same time?


2 And the earth was without form, and void;


What does it mean by the earth was without form?So could this mean God went to a place where space debris was gathered. To help create the Earth? and void;Definition of Void :

  • law : having no legal force or
  • effect
  • : not containing anything

So God was in a place in space with matter in it, but void of some things. Or force to build an earth.


2 and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.


I guess it was extremely dark.And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. What does it mean by spirit of, ? Not physically? Maybe mentally? Definition of Spirit :

  • : the force within a person that is
  • believed to give the body life,
  • energy, and power
  • : the inner quality or nature of a person
  • : a person

So the power of God was on the waters? And do we have floating water in space ? Like huge lakes of it? Or round globs of water floating in space? We know water in space will form round globes of water. Unless it freezes. So it must have been warm or the water would have been frozen. So God’s power moved upon the waters.


3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.


God said let there be light and there was light! Power of God, say something and it happens! Wounder if this made our 🌞 Sun or all light in the Universe?


4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.


God divided the light from the darkness? Could this be a black whole where even light gets sucked in and bent? And God made the light separated it from the darkness , maybe undoing a black hole?

What is meant by separating the light.


5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


So he made it so we have night time and daytime. Maybe separating night and day times. From earth.


6 ¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

    Firmament (Heb. RQYC; Sept. stereoma; Vulgate, firmamentum).—The notion that the sky was a vast solid dome seems to have been common among the ancient peoples whose ideas of cosmology have come down to us. Thus the Egyptians conceived the heavens to be an arched iron ceiling from which the stars were suspended by means of cables (Chabas, L’Antiquite historique, Paris, 1873, pp. 64-67). Like-wise to the mind of the Babylonians the sky was an immense dome, forged out of the hardest metal by the hand of Merodach (Marduk) and resting on a wall surrounding the earth (Jensen, Die Kosmologie der Babylonier, Strasburg, 1890, pp. 253, 260). According to the notion prevalent among the Greeks and Romans, the sky was a great vault of crystal to which the fixed stars were attached, though by some it was held to be of iron or brass. That the Hebrews entertained similar ideas appears from numerous biblical passages. In the first account of the creation (Gen., i) we read that God created a firmament to divide the upper or celestial from the lower or terrestrial waters. The Hebrew word yr p7 means something beaten or hammered out, and thus extended; the Vulgate rendering, “firmamentum”, corresponds more closely with the Greek stereoma (Septuagint, Aquila, and Symmachus), “something made firm or solid”. The notion of the solidity of the firmament is moreover expressed in such passages as Job, xxxvii, 18, where reference is made incidentally to the heavens, “which are most strong, as if they were of molten brass”. The same is implied in the purpose attributed to God in creating the firmament, viz. to serve as a wall of separation between the upper and lower bodies of

    It may have been inserted in this missal at a later date water, it being conceived as supporting a vast celestial reservoir; and also in the account of the deluge (Gen., vii), where we read that the “flood gates of heaven were opened”, and “shut up” (viii, 2). (Cf. also IV Kings, vii, 19; Is., xxiv, 18; Mal., iii, 10; Prov., viii, 28 sqq.) Other passages, e.g. Is., xlii, 5, emphasize rather the idea of something extended: “Thus saith the Lord God that created the heavens and stretched them out” (Cf. Is., xliv, 24, and xl, 22). In conformity with these ideas, the writer of Gen., i, 14-17, 20, represents God as setting the stars in the firmament of heaven, and the fowls are located beneath it, i.e. in the air as distinct from the firmament. On this point, as on many others, the Bible simply reflects the current cosmological ideas and language of the time.

    JAMES F. DRISCOLL

    It could mean space. Perhaps space was once a big buble of water of two kinds and the firmament is just space dividing these two waters?


7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.


So now we have firmament with water under and above split to make oxygen? Interesting.


8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.


Firmament heaven or space heaven.


9 ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.


Let the water be gathered unto one place and let dry land appear.

So the earth was a ball of water then dry land appeared some how. Nuclear chain reaction. Makin iron then other stuff maybe an astroid or two.


10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.


So all the dry land was together called earth. All the seas together


11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.


So God seeded the planet first! Interesting we can’t find seeds on the moon or Mars.


12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.


And the seed brought forth after it’s kind. Yielding fruit.


13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.


14 ¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:


Now God creates the stars in the firmament of the heaven

Note for signs ! For seasons etc

For signs? What kind?


15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.


Light from distance planets to reach earth God wanted that.


16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.


The moon light then sun and the Stars.


17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,


18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.


19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.


20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.


21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.


22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.


23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.


24 ¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.


25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.


26 ¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.


27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.


28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.


29 ¶ And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.


30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.


31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting Douglas County, Colorado On May 7, 2019

On May 7, 2019, a school shooting occurred at STEM School Highlands Ranch, a charter school located in Douglas County, Colorado, United States, in the Denversuburb of Highlands Ranch. One student was killed and eight others were injured.

On April 29, 2019, the Wikipedia entry for the STEM School Highlands Ranch featured the sentence: “Anti suicide programs are implemented [in the school] to help lower chances of suicide and school shootings.” The following comment was added by an anonymous editor that day: “Do they work? We shall see”. KDVR described this as “a possible warning”. All anonymous edits to Wikipedia leave an IP address of the editor’s computer, and according to an IP address lookup website, the location of the edit appears to be Littleton, Colorado, which is near where the shooting occurred, and no other edits to Wikipedia were made by that IP address. The comment was eventually deleted from the page.

At 1:53 PM local time, two perpetrators went into the school carrying handguns and other weapons. They opened fire in two separate locations, shooting several students. The school proceeded to announce a lockdown, and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning via Twitter to avoid the area, describing it as an “unstable situation”. Police responded to the school two minutes after the first 911 call and a bomb disposal robot was brought to the school after tactical gear was found inside one of the suspects’ vehicles. A direct two-way radio link to Douglas County Sheriff’s dispatch center is credited with the prompt response; the STEM School is one of only a few so equipped.

According to a student, Devon Erickson allegedly pulled out a gun and yelled, “nobody move”. Kendrick Ray Castillo jumped on him and was fatally shot in the chest. Erickson was then subdued and disarmed by two other students. This occurred in the high school section of STEM, while Alec McKinney, the other alleged shooter, targeted the middle school section and wounded eight students.

Officers did not have to fire at the suspects prior to them being taken into custody, later confirming that at least two handguns were used in the shooting, with three handguns and a rifle recovered. However, there was an instance of friendly fire during the response in which a private security guard reacted to a muzzle of a gun coming around the corner, that was later established to be held by a Douglas County Sheriffs deputy. Officers also went to Erickson’s home and seized a car with hand-painted graffiti that read “Fuck society” as well as “666” and a pentagram.

One student was killed and eight others were injured in the shooting. Two are in serious condition. Officials told reporters that the youngest victim is 15 years old. There were no staff deaths or injuries; all victims were students.

At least three students, 18-year-old seniors Kendrick Castillo, Joshua Jones, and Brendan Bialy lunged at an attacker, later identified as Erickson. The three students jumped from their desks and slammed the gunman against the wall. The shooter fired off several shots as they struggled with him. Castillo was killed in the process, the only student killed during the shooting. Jones was shot twice, receiving non-life-threatening injuries in his leg and hip. Bialy managed to wrestle the handgun away from the shooter during the struggle

Two suspects, who were students at the school, were taken into custody in two separate locations following the shooting. Local media outlets reported that the weapons used by the suspects were stolen from a parent, and that neither were known to law enforcement prior to the attack. Some media outlets made an effort to avoid reporting the suspect’s identities, in an effort to take part in the #NoNotoriety campaign which seeks to avoid rewarding the shooters with attention.

One suspect was later publicly identified as an 18-year-old male, Devon Erickson (born ca. 2001, in Highlands Ranch, Colorado) . According to an interview with one of the STEM school students, over repeated occasions Erickson made jokes about school shootings and had even gone as far as to tell those around him, “don’t come to school.” On Snapchat, Erickson used the screen name ‘devonkillz’. Erickson was booked on 30 criminal counts, which included one count of first-degree murder and 29 counts of attempted first-degree murder. He is being held without bond pending the next court appearance.

The other suspect is a 16-year-old transgender boy listed on the court docket as Maya Elizabeth McKinney, who uses the first name Alec.

On June 20, a statement was released that summarized police interviews with the two suspects. According to the statement, McKinney said he had been planning the attack for weeks, and Erickson said he learned about the attack the night before through Snapchat. Erickson said that McKinney threatened him and that he followed McKinney’s plan because he feared for his life. McKinney said he planned to target two students in particular as they had ridiculed him due to his gender identity and called him disgusting. McKinney said that “he wanted the kids at the school to experience bad things, have to suffer from the trauma like he has had to in his life.” Both suspects said they used cocaine before the shooting.

Court proceedings

After the initial May 8 court appearance, Erickson and McKinney were formally criminally charged for the shooting at a May 15 court hearing in the Douglas County court. Each of the two suspects was charged with 48 criminal counts, including “first-degree murder after deliberation, arson and burglary”. McKinney was charged as an adult, although his lawyers indicated that they will try to move his case to the juvenile court.

On June 14 it was announced that the Judge appointed to oversee both of the suspects cases, had recused herself from the case of McKinney but has stayed on to oversee the case of Erickson.

President Trump issued a statement on Twitter the day after the shooting, thanking first responders for “bravely intervening” and writing, “We are in close contact with law enforcement”.

The White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere issued a statement: “Our prayers are with the victims, family members, and all those affected” by the shooting, as did Republican Senator Cory Gardner: “The safety and comfort of our schools should never be taken away”. Democratic Representative Jason Crow said: “… we have a public health crisis on our hands … It is not enough to send thoughts and prayers … We must pass common-sense gun violence laws and ensure we are preparing our educators and law enforcement with the tools and resources necessary to create a safe and welcoming environment.”

Vigils, rallies and memorials

Community gatherings were held after the shooting, which included an interfaith memorial vigil, a community service and dinner, and other memorials. During the vigil, a protest broke out and many students were heard saying “mental health”. A large portion of the students walked out of the event, which was organized by a local chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The walkout occurred after the students listened to speeches from members of the community and several politicians, who were perceived by the students to be more concerned with gun control than on the need to support the victims of the shooting. One student wrote an opinion piece critical of the vigil, saying “many who attended this vigil desired to exploit our pain to support political agendas” and that there should have been more focus on “honoring Kendrick, 18, who rushed the shooter and was fatally shot”. Another interviewed shortly after the vigil claimed, “I understand calling for gun control but like these were handguns — these aren’t AR-15s these kids are carrying. There’s a law in Colorado you can’t buy a handgun unless you’re 21 – like how can you prevent that?”

A couple of days after the shooting, there was a small local rally for increased school security.

(CNN) — A high school student accused of opening fire in a Colorado school told investigators he targeted those who mocked his gender identity, and had messaged a second suspect on Snapchat hours earlier about his plan, court documents show.
The May shooting at STEM School Highlands Ranch near Denver killed Kendrick Ray Castillo, 18, and left eight others wounded.
In police records unsealed Thursday, Alec McKinney, 16, said he decided to carry out the shooting after the social media message to Devon Erickson,18, the night before.
In an interview with police, McKinney told officials while he made the decision hours earlier, he had been planning the shooting for weeks.

They allegedly broke firearms safe using an ax
McKinney said he was born a female but was transitioning to male, and he targeted specific students who called him “disgusting” for undergoing that process, according to a probable cause affidavit. His attorneys have said he identifies as male.
Erickson’s parents owned a safe with firearms, the affidavit says, and the pair left school that day and opened it with an ax.
Erickson took the two handguns used in the shooting from his parents, according to a law enforcement source. Both guns were purchased legally.
Both suspects face criminal charges in the shooting, including first-degree murder, the Denver Post reported. It said McKinney has been charged as an adult.
Suspects allegedly used cocaine
Erickson said they used cocaine in his basement before going back to school. The two students used the middle school entrance because they knew they would be able to get the guns into the school, the affidavit states.
Erickson said McKinney threatened to shoot him if he didn’t go along with the plan, documents allege.
After Erickson pulled the magnetic strip on the door and pulled it shut so it couldn’t be opened from the outside, they both pulled out their guns and said “nobody move,” the affidavit says.
Both teens were detained.
Other students helped disarm the suspects
Brendan Bialy, who helped disarm one of the suspects, said he wants people to remember Castillo as a “legend.”

A man in a mask, combat gear and glasses was shot and killed Monday morning in downtown Dallas after he opened fire with an assault rifle outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building. No one else was injured.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Matthew DeSarno identified the shooter as Brian Isaack Clyde, 22 at a news conference on a street corner near the federal building. Clyde died at the scene and was taken to Baylor University Medical Center, after police responded to an active shooter call, officials said.
Neither DeSarno nor Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, gave any indication why Clyde would target the federal building. They also did not say who shot Clyde.
Dallas Morning News photographer Tom Fox witnessed the shooter fire outside the building on Jackson Street and took photos as the shooting occurred. Fox said the gunman fired from the parking lot across the street toward Fox, a security guard, a woman walking a golden retriever and a man who hadn’t tied his tie yet.
The window panes in the revolving door and two side doors at one entrance were broken afterward. It is unclear if the door was shot by the shooter or law enforcement.
Photos taken by Fox show law enforcement around Clyde as he lay in a parking lot where he ran after the shooting.
In one photo, a Homeland Security agent with blue latex gloves is hovering over Clyde. In others, Clyde is shirtless and law enforcement officers, including the agent, kneel around him. On Clyde’s left arm, he had a red heart tattoo black silhouette of a cat inside.
Fox, who was questioned by the FBI, said he was outside the building when a man in a mask parked on the corner of Jackson and Griffin streets. The masked man ran and then stopped in the street to pick something off the ground.
The man then began shooting at the courthouse along Jackson Street and cracked the glass of the door, Fox said. At least two bullets ricocheted off the building, releasing clouds of dust and debris. Inside the building security pushed everyone down to the ground.
The federal building is likely to remain on lockdown for the rest of the day. The building houses federal courts, the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Texas, a passport office and U.S. Marshals Services.
The shooting is a block from the July 7, 2016 ambush where five police officers — four Dallas police officer and a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer — were killed by a gunman. Nearby El Centro College was placed on lockdown. During the ambush, that shooter entered the school and fired from a window at the fifth officer who was killed.
Dallas police detonated a suspicious device around 10:40 a.m. found in the 2003 Nissan Altima Clyde drove to the courthouse. The blast was strong enough to shake several sapling trees blocks away. Police searched downtown for other possible devices. Many downtown buildings are on lockdown or evacuated. Several streets remain closed.
‘I just ran’ Ed Modla was working from home at SoCo Urban Lofts this morning when he heard at least 10 loud shots outside. He looked outside and saw the gunman running across Griffin Street.
“As soon as I saw the shooter I got the hell away from the window,” he said.He took another peek from his third-floor window a few moments later and said he saw officers “zeroing in” on the suspect across the street.Dallas police evacuated the apartment building around 10 a.m., going door-to-door to make sure everyone got out.
Judicial intern Thompson Du was waiting outside Monday morning after officials kept him from going inside. Du said his friends who were already nearby when the shooting occurred told him they heard shots for 45 seconds.
Don Miles heard 10-15 shots as he walked up to the Commerce Street entrance for his 9 a.m. appointment.
“I just ran,” Miles said.
Herman Turner, 50, took the day off work to run errands at the courthouse. He said he was on his way to get a cashier’s check when he saw the gunman run from the courthouse door near Main and Griffin streets, plant himself in the middle of the road and begin firing an assault rifle back at the building.

UpDate

PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Was some questions about his mental health. The stepmother of the gunman shot and killed by security officers Monday outside the Earle Cabell Federal Courthouse in downtown Dallas said she had no idea Brian Clyde wanted to commit mass murder.

“It was so out of the blue,” said Heather Clyde. “Not near the surface of who Brian was to us.”
Heather Clyde, and Brian’s father, Paul Clyde, consoled each other outside their Plano home Wednesday afternoon.

Heather said they didn’t even recognize the photos of the partially-masked man who tried to shoot his way into the federal building, which houses several government agencies and 300 employees. Federal security officers shot and killed him before he could get inside.“We are so grateful no one was hurt or killed,” Heather said. That would have been a whole realm of Hell added.”The FBI has yet to figure out the motive for Clyde’s armed attack and his stepmother told CBS 11, she saw nothing, not in his social media posts or his interactions with them, that suggested he would try to commit mass murder.“We just wanted everyone to know we are flabbergasted as everyone else is,” Heather said. “He just wasn’t the person who is there downtown Monday morning, just not who we knew.”

Heather Clyde said she and her husband think Brian might have been trying to commit suicide, but they hadn’t seen any signs of depression or anger. “That’s our feeling. He knew there had been a shooting down there, a well armed area. That’s the only thing we can derive from his actions,” said Heather.Brian Clyde had recently graduated from Del Mar College in Corpus Christi with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Nondestructive Testing Technology.
