A bad guy brought a gun to church, planning to slaughter some sheep, but these sheep shoot back.
If every religious gathering had protection like this, don’t you think we’d see fewer stories about churches and synagogues (etc) getting shot up?
Whatever that clod had planned for the church he had targeted, those evil plans got stopped short.
In this video, you’ll see how the creepy killer is sitting along the edge, in the middle of the service — gets up and starts shooting into an unsuspecting crowd.
Despite the nutless thug getting the element of surprise, defenders of the flock spring into action and put him down like a feral dog.
The guard who took out the church shooter nailed him in the head from like 30 feet after aiming for maybe one second.

The gutless wonder will show up at the top of the footage and run toward the front of the Church. The response will come in from the upper left part of the screen. (And elsewhere.)

Authorities responded to the shooting Sunday morning just before 11 a.m. at the West Freeway Church of Christ on Las Vegas Trail.
A witness told CBS 11 News the gunman walked up to a server during communion with a shotgun and then opened fire. According to the witness, another church member — identified as a former FBI agent and part of the church’s security — shot the suspect.
…During the incident, two men died from their injuries and another man was critically injured. Fort Worth spokesman Mike Drivdahl said in a news conference that they believe the gunman is among the three but it’s unknown if he was killed or is injured.
“When White Settlement PD and White Settlement Fire Department arrived on scene, they did find a total of three patients that have been transported in critical condition. That includes who they do believe is the shooter, so that is a total of three, including the shooter, who have been transported,” Drivdahl said.
Thanks to security at the church in White Settlement for swiftly ending the attack.
We’re working with local law enforcement & elected officials to ensure they have all resources needed to respond to this event.

And before the left starts another campaign to take away guns, it wasn’t a ‘scary black rifle’, early reports point to it being a shotgun.

How long do you suppose it would have taken police to respond to this threat? And how much damage do you suppose he could have done if church parishoners had to wait for police to rescue them?
Gun ownership made citizens responsible for their own protection. And while it didn’t save everyone, it did a damn fine job of putting down the threat.
If some of the Jewish victims in New York or Jersey City had been likewise armed, and able to stop their attackers, maybe their attackers would think twice before assaulting them.
This is exactly the same reason we would love to see enough teachers trained and armed to make school shooters think twice before trying to leave their ‘mark in history’.
