Another Church Shooting Tragedy

Pastor Shot, Killed With His Own Gun

Having a license to carry a gun in public does not mean you are qualified to carry a gun in public.

Texas church shooting leaves a pastor dead and 2 others injured

Pastor Mark Allen McWilliams, the church’s 62-year-old pastor opened the door to a bathroom and found Woolen, the suspect, hiding inside.


A scuffle ensued, and McWilliams drew a handgun, the sheriff said. Sheriff Smith said McWilliams told Woolen to lie on the floor. However, when the pastor got distracted, Woolen allegedly lunged at him, took the gun from him, and shot him .


Sheriff Smith said the other church member, who was also shot, was also armed, but he never got a shot off at the suspect. The church member was shot as he was trying to get away from Woolen, the sheriff said.  Smith said the other church member suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

It Cannot Be Understood Why . . .

Why anyone would take a a concealed carry class, gun training class or a self-defense class conducted at a place that sells used bicycles and chainsaws or in a rented hotel room.

What value do you place on your life and the lives of your loved ones? The value of a used lawn mower?

If you want more from your ‘concealed carry’ training than just a piece of paper that allows you to apply for a concealed carry license, than take only official NRA firearms training classes. Not just a class taught by someone who claims to be an instructor.

Man arrested after tackling deacon at Pompano Beach church

POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A man was looking for mercy in a Broward County courtroom after he was captured on surveillance video tackling a deacon in the middle of a service at a church in Pompano Beach, leaving the victim bruised and shaken up.

The security footage shows the assailant, identified as Thomas Eisel, running toward Deacon George Labelle during Mass at St. Coleman Catholic Church, Saturday evening.

Prior to the attack, Deacon Labelle is seen speaking to the congregation while he paces back and forth.

Moments later, Eisel is seen standing up and walking away from the pews before he charges at Deacon Labelle.

The men are seen tussling for several seconds before church members hop to their feet to help the deacon.

“Naturally they want try to defend him. You don’t know what’s going through the guy’s mind,” said parishioner Tim Gilmore. “You don’t know whether he’s got a knife or something.”

Eisel was placed under arrest and appeared in bond court over the weekend. He was charged with one count of battery and one count of disturbing the peace.

“It’s kind of infuriating, you know, that all that stuff is going on out there,” said parishioner Jay Parcel. “It’s just not safe anymore.”

Court records show Eisel is on probation after being convicted back in 2017 for battery on a person over the age of 65.
