And they had no 2nd Amendment. They worshiped God but recognized that mortal threats existed. So they took their guns to church – and everywhere else, as it was their duty to defend against those threats. We mostly delegate that duty to our Police now – and they are much appreciated, but they can’t be in every church or stop every deranged maniac every time.
I have no doubt there were men present in the recent massacre who would’ve fired back, if they’d taken their guns inside. They may have saved lives. They may have saved their children. Shakes me up to wonder why God didn’t, but that’s over my head, I guess.
If you have one and are properly instructed on its use, take your gun with you. And pray you never need to use it.
