USA Today Op-Ed: It Is ‘Terrifying’ Other Parishioners Were Armed During Texas Church Shooting
USA Today op-ed gets roasted for the argument it is ‘terrifying’ that parishioners were armed in Texas church shooting.
These parishioners were long-standing members of this church. The fact they carried concealed was also known. This church had made the decision to be protected against the growing anti-Christian values that are spreading in this country.
The entire point is that good civilians with guns stopped an evil man trying to kill others.
Human courage is not "terrifying", it's admirable. They are heroes.

An op-ed penned by Elvia Díaz for the Arizona Republic and USA Today said it is “terrifying” there were other people who were armed at the West Freeway Church of Christ when it was attacked by a gunman on Sunday.
Jack Wilson was the heroic volunteer security guard who took down the shooter within six seconds of the attack. Two of the church’s parishioners were killed when Wilson used one round from his SIG P229 to kill the gunman.
“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives. Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates,” Díaz lamented. “The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department…” More
Just because @USATODAY is terrified about churchgoers a thousand miles away doesn't make those churchgoers "terrifying."
I got $100 say's whomever wrote this drivel has a documentable history of #TDS.

All churches need to be armed. The shooter was also known as a person that had shown hostility toward the church, they should have reported him to authorities were his criminal background would have been known. He had no legal right to a gun. Laws don’t prevent criminals from getting guns.
