Default Hero....

A woman acting as a security guard at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs took out a gunman. He killed 2 girls and could have potentially killed many many more. He was armed with a rifle and handgun.

She pulled out her own concealed carry weapon and shot him.

Legally armed law abiding citizens are more effective against crazed murderous/suicidal wackjobs than the police.

Good for her. the news I heard said she was a security guard for the Church...did the Church really think they needed armed security guards? well it turned out for the best in this case.

She was a security guard. Many of the larger churches actually use off-duty police officers, because they are also in charge of crowd-control, traffic control etc.

Traffic control is done on the local roads in the big churches, and as such, real police officers are needed.

I wouldn't be surprised if she was an off-duty cop that doesn't want it known she is a cop.

Dont get me wrong, I'm glad she was there in this case....but it kinda shows where this world is comeing to if we are starting to see armed guards at Churchs of all places.

I couldn't agree with you more. Isn't a Church suppose to be a safe place where one can get away from things like this?

Makes you wonder.....

I give her a lot of credit. It is a shame that this is what our world is coming to, but it is what it is and she did the right thing. She saved lives. God Bless her.

From what I understand, this church got news of the first shooting at another church. Because of this, they hired armed security. Good thing they did.

7,000 people attending this mega church. That slaughter could have been so much worse than Virgina Tech.
