"Many Democrats and liberal media figures sneer at the “good guy with a gun” narrative when it comes to the debate over gun control, dismissing it as a myth clung to by Bible-thumping rednecks. Yet, if there was ever a single incident to remind us just how wrong they are, it’s the tragic church shooting that was thankfully stopped in its tracks on Sunday.
An armed intruder interrupted a morning service at West Freeway Church of Christ near Fort Worth, Texas, disrupting the ceremony and shooting several worshiping Christians. At least two people are dead as a result, including the suspect, and one injured.
But things could have been much, much worse. Two armed people attending the service intervened and shot the attacker in his tracks after just seconds, undoubtedly saving many lives." Washington Examiner
Well, pilgrims, the lesson contained in these two incidents seems clear to this old troglodyte. These extremely orthodox Jewish folks were gathered together in their distinctive apparel to celebrate Hanukkah. The door bell rings. Someone goes to the door perhaps expecting another celebrant in side curls and funny hat. Instead, there stood an African American man with a bushy beard and a big knife. Unhappy with Jewish people for some reason, he proceeds to try to stab all present that he can reach and then flees into the street.
The same day down in Texas in a suburb of Ft. Worth, curiously called "White Settlement" another nut job suddenly produces a weapon from concealment and starts to shoot up the congregation.
Within seconds two congregants draw pistols and shoot him dead.end of attack.
It would seem to me that, however bad both incidents were, the second outcome is preferable. N.B. that the New York killer was armed with a knife. If any of the Jews had been armed with a gun this man could have been stopped before he got very far in his mad attack.
Think it over. pl
