Glock Trumps Brick

The Detroit News reports that some loon tried to attack a pastor at a Sunday service with a brick.

“Tried” is the operative word.

Violence marred a church service Sunday when a man with a brick attacked the pastor, who whipped out his Glock handgun and fired several shots, killing the man, Detroit police said.

The pastor has apparently had issues with the brick-wielding derelict before, and the assailant has previously threatened the pastor with physical harm.

But guns don’t save lives, right?

Guns in churches are a bad idea, right?

Guns just make a bad situation worse, right?

The racist prick who attacked a church in Charleston, SC didn’t choose his target because of any lack of security, right?

“I don’t think the church was his primary target because he told us he was going for the school,” Scriven said Friday. “But I think he couldn’t get into the school because of the security … so I think he just settled for the church.”

It’s unfortunate that Reverend Clementa Pinckney, who was one of the victims of the killer’s racist attack, voted against allowing firearms in churches and other venues  as a member of the South Carolina State Senate.

This isn’t the only time a gun in church stopped an attack. Maybe things would have been different if someone – ANYONE – had a way to defend the congregation in Charleston.

They would have at least had a chance.

  1. This is why I am in the process of getting my concealed carry permit here in the People’s Republic of Connecticut.

    People that come into our congregation’s gathering space will be loved and appreciated and encouraged if they behave. If they are intent on doing harm to anyone there, I will blow holes in their crania and chest cavities with large bore handgun ammunition.

    But I’m not heartless. I promise to do their funeral at no charge.

    I’m just an old softy…

    1. You probably should consult with some firearms experts on the proper ammo to use. You don’t want your bullets to go through someone and risk injuring an innocent bystander. Hollow points, wad cutters, whatever, you want your bullet to expend all of its energy into the body of the hostile, not leave the other side. In addition to endangering others, that’s just wasted energy. Be sure to get in a lot of practice to ensure you can consistently hit what you’re aiming at. If there’s tactical training available, take it. Your desire to be a sheepdog is noble. You don’t want to unintentionally become another wolf.

    People who actually think that have the cognitive processes of Geraldo Rivera.

    1. Now that’s just plain hateful. No one deserves to be compared to Geraldo.

  4. If it were a cop that was attacked, the headline would be “Unarmed black man shot by police.” Good for the pastor, protecting himself and his flock. We need more of these stories.

    Remember Buford Furrow? Funny, isn’t it, how when it comes to risk aversion even the most “insane” seem to do the calculations quite well. Also… I always thought Glocks _were_ bricks.

  6. So the black Revrun shtupped the guy’s wife, got her pregnant, and then gets to blow the brick-carrying cuckold away? I gotta get me some of that preacher action! In my next life I want to be reborn as a black preacher so I can really “minister” to my “flock”.
