    All the math in the world can't overcome denial.
    Stupidity is inherited, ignorance is a choice.

    Will Poppa Joe say the congregation shouldn't be armed, like he did here:

    He was already standing if I recall correctly. He needed a real quick draw but chances are he would have been shot either way. The guy has his finger on the trigger. I wonder if he had a TAC-14 or something. So what is the big deal with "sawed off" shotguns if you can buy a TAC-14?

    I was referring to the first person to get shot. He was sitting but off to the side, not in the pews like I thought.

    He stood up a full two to three seconds before he drew. Unfortunately, he was killed before he could even get on target.

    Here's a question: Would a hired security guard, uniformed or in plainclothes, have been able to stop this?

    I think there's a good chance that a sole guard gets shot. Here, they have multiple trained volunteers, plus multiple parishioners who may or not be trained. Multiple layers of defenses. We should use terms that younger people would understand. This is crowdsourced security.

    I think the presence of a hired guard, especially in uniform, brings the situation to a head immediately in the lobby when the guy walks in. Either the guard spots and questions the guy who was by all accounts clearly in disguise and acting strange, or the gunman spots the guard and takes him out first. Either way, we have gunfire being exchanged in what may be a crowded lobby where everyone is standing (vital organs at shotgun level) A situation possibly MORE chaotic than what actually occurred.

    Yes, the deep concealment draw is certainly hard to watch as the gentleman tries to react but comes nowhere close to being able to.

    The flip side is that an aware gunman may see an open carrier and drop him with the first shot. Just as he would likely do to a uniformed guard. A shooter intends on being the only one holding a gun. Uniformed or open carry becomes the shooter’s first target.

    Crowdsourced security....nice
