More guns is clearly the answer! Texas attorney general Ken Paxton appeared on FoxNews to urge folks to carry guns in church. Regardless how odd or uncomfortable it might feel, someone has to be there to stop the next attacker!
"All I can say is, you know, in Texas at least we have the opportunity to have concealed-carry, And so if it's a place where somebody has the ability to carry, there's always the opportunity that gunman will be taken out before he has the opportunity to kill very many people," Paxton replied.
Shawn pressed Paxton on this point, noting that carrying a gun while "praying to the Lord" are two "diametrically opposite concepts." Paxton was unswayed.
He agreed that carrying a gun to church can seem unnatural and that's why many people don't do it. (Some faith communities in Texas have also actively resisted efforts to allow guns in places of worship.) But, Paxton argued, we need to be "arming some of the parishioners or the congregation so that they can respond if something like this, when something like this happens again."
