My lovely wife and I attended a church retreat over the weekend. I packed a pistol the entire time. When we married 11 years ago, it was a little hard for her to get used to the idea of me going armed everywhere, especially to church and church functions. During some free time during the retreat, conversation turned to how our preacher's wheels can't be shot off during a sermon. There have been a few instances where people had health issues like passing out and one going into convulsions as well as some odd people being disruptive. He just keeps on preaching and never misses a beat. Then conversation turned to a couple of times when people feared for their safety because of the behavior of people in the church. Back in 1999, a nut walked into a church in Ft. Worth and opened fire on the youth group killing seven and injuring 7 more. The week after this, a man with a back pack came into our church and sat down. It was said that he was acting strange. It turned out to be nothing, but it had a lot of people worried.
My point to all this is that we should take our safety, as well as the safety of our friends and loved ones very serious. Get a good gun, learn how to use it, and go armed. It's like having a fire extinguisher around your house. Chances are you will never need it, but if you do you will be glad you had it.
