Bishop E. W. Jackson, during an interview on Fox News, called for pastors to carry firearms in the church.
“If someone comes into my church to hurt my members I have an absolute obligation to defend them, to protect them,” said Jackson.
This notion isn’t without some merit. Concealed carriers inside of churches have stopped armed criminals before. Jackson’s advice comes as President Barack Obama gave a speech yesterday after the shooting, which seem to have many thinking he was gearing up for a push on new gun control laws.
“At some point, we as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries,” Obama said. “It doesn’t happen in other places with this kind of frequency. And it is in our power to do something about it, he also added.”
Bishop Jackson is a GOP politician, an ordained bishop, and was a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps from 1970 – 73.
