So, the shooter 1st took out 2 armed parishioners, and was then taken out by the security who was a former FBI agent



It doesn't say with what they were armed. Might have been guns, might have been reaching for whatever they could get to hand.

The report says there were a few other armed parishoners, but what are the odds that all of them were right there in the back like that so that the gunman could take down two right away because they were ushers?

Shooter was dropped by church security.

This piece has lots of photos and you can see it.

The man who got the shooter was a former FBI agent who was hired to be armed security by the church, but there were also several parishoners who had their weapons too and had them drawn. The whole incident took about 2.5 seconds. The host that took the gunman down did so in the time it took him to point his weapon at the congregation as a whole.



Why would a Church hire armed security? And a lot of people were packing. Sounds like they were aware something was going to happen.



You don't recall the very, very deadly mass church shooting that took place in Texas not so long ago in Sutherland Springs where 26 were killed and 20 wounded? It was about 2 years or so ago.

The count of armed citizens from the video is 7 (via video analysis from another forum I visit)

Well its been two weeks right?

abcnews.go.com...

Roughly every fifteen days now.

But this American carnage ends right here and ends right now..... sure it does.


I'm assuming you are for getting rid of all those nasty gun thingeys and then everything will be fine.

Then every Christian, then every Jew...

You know, those religious radicals.

Then a little bit of a purge (For America!!!) to get rid of those who don't think like the left...

Then those that are left will just settle in comfortably and just be proud to be part of the 4th Reich.

/facepalm

To the OP, sad that there are crazies out there.

Too bad there are gun-free zones where this can happen.



Christians don't kill people, but guns do (once more).


A gun is an inanimate object.

So no, guns don't kill people.

Hard to get into a serious conversation with someone who can't comprehend that.

Christians kill people all the time, actually... although the motive is generally not their religion.




Gun's cannot reproduce, either. Their very existence, as well as their danger, is by the hand of man.

Repeat the mindless mantra, "guns don't kill people, people kill people". The absence of reasoning involved is not particularly clever. Of course, guns, in the hands of those who kill, do kill people.

A gun is inanimate, with no will, unless the will comes from the hand of a human. A bullet is inanimate, with no will, unless it travels from the gun due to the will of a human. A human is an inanimate object, with no will, once the bullet has met its mark.

A bullet or gun in a drawer is harmless. It isn't harmless if a person takes hold of it. You need all the parts to make the danger. If we eliminate the guns, it will eliminate their danger, or, if we eliminate all humans, it will eliminate their danger.

Which is your choice?

Woah, woah, woah .... Christians don't kill people? Tell that to the loonies who bring up the Crusades at every opportunity to justify violence done to Christians.


Christians follow the rules and directives of Christ and they are entirely benign.

The Crusaders were not Christian, they were an evil rabble, stirred up to do evil, at the behest of evil leaders, in a quest for wealth and power.

Now one of the morons above is saying “eliminate the guns”

What a pussy

It was guns that saved people’s lives today

Apparently humans don’t save people. Guns do!

Jesus Christ said: "But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also."

As I said, they were not Christians. They did not follow Christ.

I thought guns were inanimate and only people could do things?

If guns had not been involved in this specific situation, no lives would have been lost. The killer killed, using guns.

No-one was saved. People only lost their lives.

Wrong

Heaps of people were saved. Saved from being murdered.

Saved. By a gun.

Guns save people. Today that was proven

Again

Hopefully gun sales skyrocket again now. More guns in the hands of more people is a great thing. It will lead to more lives being saved.

How many would have died if their were no guns at all in the situation, or hundreds (perhaps thousands) before it?

It's like arguing that everyone should have access to a nuclear weapon to prevent atomic war.

It isn't a sane or rational thing to believe.

Neither is “no one should be armed”

That’s not sane or rational at all. Evil people exist. Everywhere in every society. So we should all be disarmed so that a mugger has an easy job? So that a rapist can get his end away? So that a mob can assault and batter?

All people should be armed at all times. Even things out. Make the vulnerable invulnerable.

Sounds a whole lot saner and more rational than ‘let them stab your daughter to death’.

Atomic wars have literally been prevented precisely because so many nations have nuclear weapons

The USA having nukes stops Russia from using them

(Although I do believe that a nuclear war is an inevitability. It’s hard to uninvent nuclear weapons)

You see that is where the stupid comes in.

I never suggested that everyone should have restricted access to firearms, Just the general public.

And, in case you haven't noticed, the usual punishment for a rapist, mugger or thief does not involve a firearm.

Arming everyone gives advantage to the criminal, who intend harm from the very the outset. In fact, the possession of a firearm without a rational, and legal, reason for it's use, probably indicates criminal intent.

So, are you suggesting that more people should have nuclear weapons, then? So we will be even safer?

Sometimes it indicates criminal intent.

Sometimes it’s just because people think guns are cool. Which, they are I guess. Like swords and jets and throwing stars.

A mugger, rapist or thief doesn’t get to mug, rape or steal when their intended victim has a gun. Even if the criminal is armed too. They usually still do not get to commit their crime.

Much to the dismay of the left.

The general public in the United States has the inalienable right to have and own firearms

That will not change in the foreseeable future

Which is a good thing.

Hmmmm, I’m on the fence with that one. Leaning towards ‘yes’ though. I wouldn’t nuke Ghana if I knew that Mozambique would nuke my country in response.

Like a rapist won’t attempt rape if his victim is carrying a revolver
