Just read that he pulled a long gun out of his coat during communion and started shooting. Either a security guard or an armed congregant took him out quickly.

I will never understand the "why" but I'm so glad that others reacted quickly and stopped the shooter. We will pulling out of the parking lot of our church when we heard the news. I hate that in today's world we have to arm ourselves before we go to worship God.

In the video you can clearly see that the guy that got shot at point blank was trying to draw his weapon, then the security guard shot the suspect one time and several other arm congregants approached the subject while he was down. Quick reaction by all, sad that one life was taken away before the shooter was neutralized.

Thank you. She was finally about to leave after being interviewed. It could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for people being alert to what he was doing.

Crazy how fast it plays out. Appears the gentleman that was killed hesitated in pulling his weapon. Prayers to the one killed and one injured as well as everyone else in the church excluding the now dead POS. To the gentleman that laid down a fatal head shot and ended the fight, my hats off to you.

I watched a few times, I donít think the deceased guy hesitated, I think he had problems drawing. Shows why we should practice more than just shooting.

A couple of them swept half of the congregation with their muzzle. I am as pro 2A as anyone but my biggest fear is all of the concealed guns that will come out if someone pulls a gun at my church! Old ladies, people with no training and people who donít train/practice at all in a room with 1500 people in it is scary!

My bet is that "the media" has no power to pull anything down. More than likely the hosting sites are taking it down, since it is pretty traumatic.

That being said, I'm glad someone was there to stop the threat. Prayers to all involved.

That would be the last thing I am afraid of. If idiot had a dang AR I want more people firing at him.

That video was very sad. We do have a security crew at my church.

My heart goes out to all who were there. And to all the families who suffered loss of life from this act.



Anybody remember the Wedgwood Baptist Church shooting several years ago? After that, a lot of churches began to give second thought to allowing congregation members to carry.



Many churches in this area of Texas are no longer soft targets.

Man that was hard to watch. Feel terrible for the victim. Glad others were carrying. I’m bad about remembering to carry my concealed carry, but events like this remind me why I got my LTC.
