This is a win…
A gunman open fired in a church recently and armed churchgoers were able to subdue the gunman before any more lives were killed. Trump praised the churchgoers “who responded with remarkable speed.”
He tweeted, “Armed congregants quickly stopped a crazed church shooter in Texas. If it were not for the fact that there were people inside of the church that were both armed, and highly proficient in using their weapon, the end result would have been catastrophic. A big THANK YOU to them.”
“Our prayers are with the families of the victims and the congregation of yesterday’s church attack. It was over in 6 seconds thanks to the brave parishioners who acted to protect 242 fellow worshippers. Lives were saved by these heroes, and Texas laws allowing them to carry arms!”
This is exactly why we need the Second Amendment. Trump is correct that if the gunman were to have chosen a church where people did not have guns, the casualty would be great.
