    Illinois does not permit concealed weapons permits.....

    Something similar happened in Colorado a few years back, and one of the people at the church took the shooter out pretty quickly.

    My husband says this is why he has a concealed weapon permit - for crazies like this guy.

    Praying for the family and for the church family.....

    No one is allowed to carry a weapon into a church here.

    I read where this brother helped turn what was a tiny church around to a thriving ministry to the community. When you do the Lord's will, the enemy attacks even harder. May God comfort familiy, the church memebers and the community in general. May God help them find the seeds of good purpose in this horrorible event.

    In this day and age, I think more churches need security plans, including armed guards.

    What caught me as strange was that some in the congregation thought it was a skit. What? Is the church today that dramatized?

    When I read about the shooting, I cried. I can't imagine what that family and church are going through right now! So sad!
