I find it hard to believe that an entire West Texas church congregation was unarmed. I suspect that someone in the Sutherland Springs’ church was packing heat. Someone who died before he or she could return fire. Regardless, this heinous attack highlights the paramount importance of situational awareness. Armed or not, the sooner a good guy or gal detects a threat, alerts the crowd and initiates a counter-attack, the better. At that point, a ballistic option is way better than not having one. So . . .
are you armed at your house of worship? Is anyone? Do you sit in a particular location in case there is a lethal threat? Have you prepped your family for the possibility? Do you have a plan?
