As tragic as it was even with the two deaths, the outcome of what could have been one of the worst mass-shootings ever, lasted barely 2 or 3 minutes or less (mere seconds, even) because of the fact that most of the worshipers were (gulp!) armed, cocked, and loaded.
Congregants in the homely West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement (a beautiful town slightly north-west of Fort Worth, Texas) speedily and heroically demonstrated the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and the superiority of Texas-style governance when an awkward attempt was made to slaughter a large number of people (by the way, can you imagine a pair of names like ‘CHRIST and WHITE’ more likely to elicit scorn from elitists and the alphabet-soup media?! Oh the horror!).
Armed parishioners quickly fought back and ‘offed’ the gunman before he was able to get off more than a couple of shots. The entire action took less than six seconds from start to finish, which posits of course, that no police force anywhere will ever meet that kind of response time. Individuals must have the courage and training to defend themselves and others because in the end we all depend on each other.
Much to the chagrin of the alphabet-soup media and the leftist demoMarxocrats, what emerges from this is the picture of God-loving Christians attending Sunday church while carrying their guns with them. The support of the 2nd Amendment coupled with the right for folks to defend themselves on the spot couldn’t be more obvious.

In the fantasy world inhabited by progressives, passing laws to restrict gun ownership and the carrying of firearms prevents violence. The precise opposite is the truth, as demonstrated convincingly by John Lott, whose research led him to change his position on gun control once he discovered the facts. His book More Guns Less Crime is required reading for anyone who wants to be honest about preventing the death of innocent Americans.
Yet the two coastal states that regard themselves as smarter and more sophisticated than the denizens of flyover country refuse to acknowledge this truth and maintains laws the restrict or even prohibit gun ownership and the bearing of arms in public places.
Worshippers in a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas heroically demonstrated the wisdom of our Founders and the superiority of Texas-style governance yesterday when an attempt was made to slaughter a large number of people at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement (can you imagine a pair of names more likely to elicit scorn from elitists?). Armed parishioners fought back and shot the gunman dead before he was able to slaughter more than two of them.[-]
[+] … I am so ashamed of my own state of California and so in awe of Texans – their governance and their personal courage – that I’d move there right away, were it not for various compelling family and personal considerations that prevent it. Call me a prisoner of progressives. I’ll continue to advocate adherence to the Second Amendment,but such is the “invincible ignorance” (A Catholic expression that I love) that they will not change within my lifetime.[end]

As Paula Bolyard explains it in PJMedia:
Thank God for a Texas law, which went into effect on Sept. 1, loosening restrictions on guns in places of worship and schools — otherwise, there may have been even more carnage. Senate Bill 535 allows licensed handgun owners to legally carry their firearms in places of worship.
“We have learned many times over that there is no such thing as a gun-free zone. Those with evil intentions will violate the law and carry out their heinous acts no matter what,” state Sen. Donna Campbell, co-sponsor of the bill, said at the time. “It makes no sense to disarm the good guys and leave law-abiding citizens defenseless where violent offenders break the law to do great harm.”
Campbell explained that the existing law had been “confusing and clunky when it comes to clearly stating the rights of licensed Texans to carry on the premises of a church. This bill provides clarity of the Legislature’s intent to treat churches in the same manner as other privately owned establishments in Texas.” [end]
So sad that two worshipers had to die before the hateful shooter was taken out by armed heroes. While most run from danger some run toward it.
Don’t Mess with Texas!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
