"Cowardly"

Anti-abortion groups also denounced the shooting.
BBC NEWS | World | Americas | US abortion doctor is shot dead

My guess is that it could have been the father of one of the foetuses that Dr Tiller had aborted, maybe against that father's wishes (or even without his knowledge). Then again, maybe I just watch too much CSI.

Sadly, there are far too many nutcases with access to guns running around the US these days. :(

I wouldn't blame it on access to guns. I'd simply blame it on the nutcases.

If someone else in the church had been wearing a gun, they might have been able to defend him against the homicidal nut case.

Maybe if they were a trained law enforcement officer or military type. In a situation like that, if someone else had a gun and shot back, probably more people would have been hit instead of just the doctor.

But I do place most of the blame on the nutcases and not the guns. I just wish the US had stricter regulations for gun ownership. If you need to take a test to get a license to drive a car, I think you should have to do at least that much to own a gun. It won't stop all the random shooting, but I'm sure it would cut down on them a bit.
