Not a gun free zone

Before heading off to church Sunday morning I read the shocking news that there had been a shooting at the YWAM campus in Colorado.

Later in the day the other shoe fell and the report was that another shooting had occurred in a nearby Colorado Springs church. Too close, too soon to be coincidental.

Police arrived to find that the gunman had been killed by a member of the church's armed security staff, Myers said.

"There was a courageous staff member who probably saved many lives here today," Myers said.


About 7,000 people were on the campus at the time of the shooting, Boyd said. Security at the church had been beefed up after the early morning shootings in Arvada, he said. Houston Chronicle

It could have been VA Tech all over again. It wasn't. I have a new appreciation for our own security staff.

UPDATE: The security officer is a woman!
