Compare and Contrast

A tale of two churchgoers.

Later, at New Life Church, a gunman wearing a trench coat and carrying a high-powered rifle opened fire in the parking lot and later walked into the church as a service was letting out.

Jeanne Assam, a church member who volunteers as a security guard, shot and killed Murray, who was found with a rifle and two handguns, police said. The pastor called her "a real hero."

"When the shots were fired, she rushed toward the scene and encountered the attacker there in a hallway. He never got more than 50 feet inside our building," he said. "There could have been a great loss of life yesterday, and she probably saved over 100 lives."

Boyd said the gunman had a lot of ammunition and estimated that 40 rounds had been fired inside the church, leaving what looked like a "war scene."

Jessie Gingrich, who had left New Life and was in the parking lot getting into her car, saw the gunman get a rifle from his trunk and open fire on a van with people inside. Gingrich said she cowered in her vehicle, fumbling with the key.

"I was just expecting for the next gunshot to be coming through my car. Miraculously—by the grace of God—it did not," she told ABC's "Good Morning America."

Kill or be killed.

Defend yourself or cower and pray.

Take responsibility for your own safety or rely on the "compassion" of a mentally deranged, subhuman psychopath.

The choice is yours.

Unless, of course, you live in a state or municipality controlled by so-called "pro-choice" liberals, who don't think dangerous individuals such as yourself should be allowed to own or carry defensive firearms.
