Robert Bakke, a popular minister and motivational speaker whose books have included “Prayer at Full Throttle,” says America needs to learn from the Texas church shooting that congregations need to be armed.
Also theaters, schools and other businesses that promote themselves as being “gun-free” should be protected, he said.
“Mass killers are still sane enough to seek unarmed targets,” he said in a statement Thursday.
Armed resistance – a member of the congregation shooting back at an attacker for example – would quickly convince an attacker he had made a mistake.
“I take my call to overcome evil very seriously,” he said. “Perhaps this horrible tragedy in Texas will fortify our churches, ultimately prompting the church to lead the way to a safer America.”
The idea of shooting back was discussed only days earlier in a WND report about the 1993 incidentpost was originally published on this site
