Well, THIS seems like a good idea, don’t you think?
Oh, does that not fit with the Precious Moments, soft-focus, turn-the-other-cheek Jesus that you have in mind?
We can fix that.
In the wake of the Sutherland Springs massacre, one Indiana gun shop and range is supporting the pastors and church leaders in their obedience to the command of Jesus to ‘get a sword’.
Doug says that all Pastors need to take care of their sheep, even if it means having armed guards in churches:
It looks like Doug isn’t the only one that thinks that way.
Top Guns owner, Steve Ellis offered free firearms training to two dozen churches in the area.
The local Indiana gun shop and range offered free firearms training to 24 churches in the area last weekend. More specifically, volunteer gun experts taught church officials what to do in an active shooter situation, including how to identify the shooter.
“Part of it is situational awareness, threat assessment, be a good whiteness, knowing what to look for and what to watch out for so that you can get that information and communicate to other members of the team,” Ellis tells MyWabashValley.com.
The program was incredibly successful. Over 40 people attended the training session. Ellis said that with so many attendees, he knows that they couldn’t prepare everyone for everything, but at least it’s a start.
“We may not be able to catch every scenario but man, if we can catch some of these, boy that would be a great thing to be able to prevent the next incident from taking place,” Ellis explains.

Ellis explains in the tour video of the gun shop that his late father had read through the Bible over 50 times and chronicled it in the back of his well-read copy. It’s on display at the gun shop in a small section that gives homage to the man that started the thriving business.
Good on you, Steve. It looks like Dad would’ve been really proud of this move.
Let’s just hope this fantastic idea catches on.

The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.
Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?
It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.
We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.
We need to Obey Jesus.
Including what he said in Luke 22:36.
He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
