Wearing a skull mask, full body armor and dressed in all black, Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, opened fire mercilessly on a small congregation during their worship service and massacred 26 people and wounded 20 others.
“Investigators said at a news conference Sunday evening that the victims ranged in age from 5 to 72 years old. One official said about 20 people were hospitalized with injuries ranging from minor to ‘very severe.'”
Men and women, including a pregnant woman and several children, were murdered as Kelley sprayed the pews with his arsenal.
We live in a very dangerous age.
Disarming the Righteous
In some states, sadly, it is still illegal to either conceal carry a weapon (CCW). In states that allow CCW, some states won’t allow CCW in houses of worship (aka, churches). While this was not the case in Sutherland Springs Church, in Texas, the reporting suggested that most attending the service decided to leave their guns in their cars. This unarmed congregation allowed the gunman the freedom to keep killing as many as he could. Clip after clip was unloaded and no one could take him down. It wasn’t until a neighbor, who heard the gunshots, grabbed his gun and ran to confront the shooter.
But imagine if two or six or twelve men and women had their guns on them at the time. This madman could’ve been stopped much faster. It’s precisely situations like this that demand a proactive protective program of not only designated “sheep dogs” (those who carry and are actively assessing threats during a service), but also to allow and encourage church members to conceal carry in churches.
And we shouldn’t stop there. Schools, hospitals, and other areas that are currently gun-free zones are the most dangerous places because they are easily targets with sitting ducks – unprotected because a few politicians have convinced their constituents that guns are evil and that guns are the problem.
Arm Yourself For In Love
If you have a CCW permit, buy a good holster, learn how to shoot safely and effectively, and start carrying your “emergency equipment” on your person at all times. If you don’t currently carry, get your permit and start carrying to protect your family, your church members, and as a Good Samaritan for all others.
Gun Control Puppets
And before someone yells “gun control” one more time, remind them that there were more guns freely available and in peoples homes in the 40s and 50s without this rash of murderous activity. The free availability of guns back then did not cause people to use them to commit mass murder with the numbers we’re seeing today.
Point them to Chicago, which has the strictest gun control laws and the highest murder rates. Guns are clearly not the problem.
Guns are Clearly Not the Problem
Taking away guns will not solve the gun violence epidemic. Evil people will do evil anyway they can. They will invent methods of mass killing. The last thing we need is for guns to be taken away from law abiding citizens while the criminals still have theirs and can get more on the black market.
