Ongoing War

Whether we fight or not, we are at war.
 
An 86-year-old priest has been beheaded by two ISIS knifemen who cut his throat after bursting into a French church and taking nuns and worshippers hostage before being shot dead by police.
Five people including the priest, two nuns and two parishioners were held by assailants who raided the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen in Normandy at 9am.
The clergyman, named as Jacques Hamel, is believed to have been beheaded during the attack while another hostage is fighting for life in hospital.
The two attackers were neutralized by marksmen as they emerged from the building, which is now being searched for explosives. French president Francois Hollande said the men claimed to be from ISIS.

As someone else said, "Why would anyone want to carry a gun in church?"
