But it's also more "ammo" for those of us (like Yours Truly) who keep sayingthatpeople should carry EVERYWHERE, even in church.
Still,so many pastors and church members continue to insist on being naive, ignorant or in denial -- and therefore unarmed. And even if SOME FEW members actually do carry, the vast majority of the other church members do not, still refusing to take personal responsibility for their own protection and unfairly expecting other (armed) members to step in harm's way to protect them...THAT is not right, either. Shame on them.
Christians need to "get with the program," realize that criminals/psychos don't respect churches any more than they do schools andtake personal responsibility for their own defense. Until they do,they will continue to be easy targets.
And frankly IMO, those who will not defend themselves deserve the results...I have no sympathy for anyone who won't take responsibility fortheir own defense or at least makean effort to do so...rather than just HOPE something bad won't happen (leave that to the liberals as it is one ofTHEIR characteristic traits, as is leaving their protection up to others).
Of course it'sone's choice -- church member or the average Joe or Jane -- not to be armed, but it's also their choice that got them killed if that ends up happening.
