Mother of Nashville Christian School Shooter Appeared to be Gun Control Advocate, Shooting Victims Identified


As WeLoveTrump reported Monday, three children and three adults were killed after 28-year-old Audrey Hale opened fired inside the Covenant Presbyterian School in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tennessee Christian School Shooter Identified as Transgender

Police Chief John Drake told local news outlets “Hale does identify as transgender.”

Hale also reportedly had a manifesto written.

Authorities believe the transgender shooter previously attended the Christian school.

Authorities are still gathering details about the shooting and the shooter.

In new reports, it appears the shooter's mother was a gun control activist "who once urged friends on Facebook to sign a petition calling to keep firearms out of schools," the New York Post reports.

From the New York Post:

“So important!” Norma Hale wrote in a March 8, 2018 Facebook post as she shared the petition that stated “Keep Guns Out of School” that appeared to be from the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation.

The webpage’s domain to the petition did not appear to exist anymore.

In another post from Feb. 21, 2018, Hale shared another petition from Sandy Hook Promise urging lawmakers to “Make Large-Capacity Gun Magazines Illegal.”

Hale’s adult child, Audrey Hale, carried out Monday’s horrific mass shooting at The Covenant School Monday morning.

The 28-year-old, believed to be a former student at the small Christian school, was carrying at least two assault rifles and a handgun, police said.

Metro Nashville Police Department identified the six victims from the tragedy Monday evening.

"The 6 victims fatally shot by the active shooter at Covenant School are identified as: Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all age 9, Cynthia Peak, age 61, Katherine Koonce, age 60, and Mike Hill, age 61," Metro Nashville PD stated.
