The Oregon gunman Chris Harper-Mercer asked his Umpqua Community College victims what religion they believed in before killing them.

In 1976 the IRA stopped a minibus near Kingsmill in South Armagh and asked the workmen in it their religion, before murdering the Protestants.

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness said his thoughts and prayers are with the Roseburg victims. “I extend my condolences to all the families of the victims at this awful time of grief and mourning and wish those injured a full and speedy recovery.”

Considering the Oregon shooting is so similar to Kingsmill, would Mr McGuinness come clean on his IRA past and extend his condolences to all the families of those murdered by the IRA?
