A pastor in Detroit was forced to do the unthinkable when a man entered his church with a brick and started making death threats.
The pastor, who was not named, pulled out his firearm and shot at the man who had been threatening the pastor and the congregation.
“They knew each other and had some type of problem before,” Assistant Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt told the Detroit Free Press. “When I got there, the body had already been moved. The pastor was in custody. We had the gun.”
WXYZ also reported that Smith believed the pastor and Smith’s wife were having an affair and that the pastor had gotten the woman pregnant. However, not all the details regarding their relationship, if any, were immediately available.
Thankfully, this pastor had a firearm and was able to defend himself and his congregation. Who knows what might have happened if he wasn’t able to defend himself?
Incidents like these are why American citizens need to be armed. Nowhere is safe anymore, and we need to stop acting like walking inside a gun-free zone will somehow make us safer.
Politicians who want to disarm Americans pretend to believe criminals will obey laws. If criminals actually followed the law, they wouldn’t be committing murder. What we can do is make it harder for them to find a place that is packed with unarmed victims.
