There was a Church shooting in White Settlement, Texas, today. The currently unidentified gunman killed two and injured two before being killed by two members of security.
I was asked about this, and my answer is this, in our day and age, if you are licensed to carry, and you opt to not carry in Church, you are a fool. My advice remains the same, get licensed and carry everywhere you are legally allowed to do so.
The way to stop mass shootings is to return fire. Period.
For my anti-gun, anti #2A friends and readers, I ask you to take a moment to think about this; instead of only seeing that a criminal had a gun, which he would have access to regardless of any proposed gun laws, consider instead how you would defend yourself if this had occurred in your Church?
I understand not wanting to hurt other people. I get it. But I also understand that there are bad people you really do enjoy hurting people. I see clearly that we live in a culture where people are kept in a state of complete agitation at every waking moment. I see that the practice of othering anyone who disagrees with you is common practice. These are dangerous times. If you do not take the idea of protecting yourself seriously, and instead opt to have someone else protect you, you need to know going in that help is going to take time to get to you. Today’s attack would have been much worse if not for armed good guys on the scene. They were able to stop the attacker when he was just starting his attack.
Be smart, take charge of your own plans for safety and self-defense.
