From London protesters: 'Behead those who insult prophet', February 3, 2006:
Placards calling for anyone who insults the prophet Mohammed to be beheaded have been waved during an angry protest outside the Danish Embassy in London.
And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.
So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

From Luby's Massacre Remains Among Nation's Worst Mass Shootings, April 16, 2007:
(April 16, 2007)—Fifteen years ago last October, 35-year-old George Hennard of Belton drove his pickup truck through the widow of the Luby's cafeteria in Killeen, got out and opened fire on 80 terrified noon-hour diners with a pair of semi-automatic pistols.
Armed with a Glock 17 and a Ruger P-89, Hennard worked his way methodically through the restaurant, sparing some and killing others.
The gunfire continued for an agonizing ten minutes until four police officers arrived and opened fire on the gunman, leaving him wounded and cornered.
