An armed Pastor found a male hiding in the bathroom of the small Starkville Methodist Church. The male forcibly took the Pastor's gun and killed him. The male also shot another church member before fleeing on foot.

This is a tragic situation. A gun that was being worn for protection was used to kill the owner. Most people wearing a pistol are only physically aware that they are armed and not mental conscience of firearm. They strap on the weapon but do not consider what circumstance could cause them to draw and used to gun effectively. Using a weapon as a threatening device is not effective.

If you or members of your congregation are wearing weapons to church, get trained to become conscience of the weapon and not just aware.

Contact me anytime to protect yourself and the congregation.
