    Shooting Back

    What would you do if armed terrorists broke into your church and started attacking your friends with automatic weapons in the middle of a worship service?

    Would you be prepared to defend yourself and other innocents?

    Would you be justified in doing so?

    Is it time for church-goers to consider such once-unthinkable possibilities?

    There is one man in the world who can address these questions with first-hand experience.
    His name is Charl van Wyk, yes it's me - a South African who was faced with just such a shocking scenario.

    In "Shooting Back: The Right and Duty of Self-Defense," I makes a Biblical, Christian case for individuals arming themselves with guns, and does so more persuasively than perhaps any other author because I found myself in a church attacked by terrorists.

    I would love you to look for this book. You will surely blessed. ‘Shooting Back’ is a wonderful book describing the right as a Christian to carry a concealed weapon for protection of yourself and others. It is backed by Scripture and has a word for word description of an actual situation where having a pistol, clearly saved the lives of many. It is a book that should be read by believers and non-believers.

    Welcome to the board. You certainly bring some unique experience and insight that I am sure we will learn something from. I have posted a link to help bring folks up to speed:

    Welcome.

    I'm head of security at my church and lead a small armed team. Had shots fired just 50' off our campus but most of the stuff on campus has been vandalism or homeless related. Still I think about this al the time and run scenarios around it with the team. Can never be to prepared.

    I'm off now to try and find your book.

    A bunch of members in my church & myself wish we could be armed. Unfortunately our church has a school attached to it & in my state it would be a felony to be armed. That holds true whether school is in session or not. Our pastors & teachers checked with the authorities to see if there was any way around the law on Sundays or evenings but no luck in that pursuit.

    Welcome to the forum.

    And to answer your questions, Yes, Yes and Yes.
    This is one of the reasons I got my permit and carrry all day, everyday and everywhere (that is legal).
    I'll have to look for the book, sounds like an interesting read.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Welcome aboard.
    We have armed LEOs on duty and several armed members of the congregation. Yes, we would all fight back!
