Isn’t it exactly what our would-be masters say they’re protecting us from, when they say “civilians” shouldn’t have guns?
What’s normally a place of worship turned into a crime scene when a man entered Faith City Mission with a handgun.
“They said there was a gun in the building everyone started running all different ways,” said Clay Murdock, a student at Faith City Mission.
Amarillo Police said the initial came in around 8:54 a.m. and indicated there was an armed suspect inside who had 100 to 150 people held hostage in the chapel.
Sergeant Brent Barbee said officers entered the building when they encountered an individual who had a handgun.
“The officers fired shots that struck the man,” said Barbee. “After some additional investigation, they’ve learned that the man that the gun may have taken the firearm away from the original suspect in the call. The man who originally had the gun has been taken into custody.”
So the only person harmed in the incident was shot by police, who showed up late and started shooting without any knowledge of what was going on, gunning down the hero of the scene. Gee, I wonder why that’s been swept under the rug.
In more important news, several busloads of school children were traumatized Tuesday when Florida legislators refused to arbitrarily ban AR-15 rifles and standard capacity magazines. Counselors were on hand with portable safe spaces or some damn thing, I dunno…
