On Sunday, our hearts mourned again for the loss of life when a maniac walked into a Texas church and shot down innocent people.
Of course, the left immediately blamed gun owners and the NRA, even though cried that all Muslims aren’t to blame after a Muslim terrorist mowed down innocent people in New York last week. A bit hypocritical, eh? Then again, the left usually is.
President Donald Trump spoke out about the shooting from overseas in Tokyo during a press conference, and said that this is not a “gun’s situation” but rather a “mental health problem at the highest level.”
Interestingly enough, the shooter was chased down by a legally armed citizen, AKA a good guy with a gun, and another citizen who was simply looking to stop the man. If the left has their way, only the criminals would have guns and we would likely be reporting on more deaths.
One of the men who said he helped run the Texas church gunman off the road Sunday is being hailed as a hero for possibly preventing more bloodshed after the deadly shooting.
Johnnie Langendorff told reporters that he decided to track down the killer after seeing the gunman, Devin Kelley, exchanging fire with another member of the community. That person, who hasn’t been identified, reportedly shot Kelley during the encounter. The mass shooting occurred around 11:30 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, which is about 30 miles southeast of San Antonio. At least 26 people were killed and 20 wounded.
Langendorff said, “I pulled up on the intersection and I saw the shooter coming from the cars, actually right outside the church his vehicle was parked, doors open, engines open and him and the neighbor across the street and exchanging fire.”
He claims that he “saw the gunfire” but that he never got a good look at the gunman.
Lagendorff said, , “The shooter got in his truck, the gentlemen with the rifle came to my truck as the shooter took off, and he briefed me quickly on what had just happened and said we had to get him, so that’s what I did.”
The two then chased down the gunman.
He continued, “We just take pursuit, we speed over 87 through traffic and hit about 95 going down 539 trying to catch this guy until he eventually lost control on his own and went off in the ditch.”
About five to seven minutes late, the police arrived and Lagendorff said they “led police to him.”
