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.
