you go, girl!



anyone else read how the colorado gunman went down?

recap from the denver post, which i'll summarize:

basically, armed male security guard 1 confronts gunman and punks out. deranged gunman continues shooting. armed male security guard 2 confronts gunman and punks out. deranged gunman continues shooting. armed female security guard turns the corner into the hallway, walks directly towards the gunman and calmly shoots at gunman.

hundreds of people were in the worship hall, and disaster was averted.

yes, the freepers are all giddy and excited, but c'mon this is one time where we can all agree...

that was pretty damn cool.

girl power!

They have (and need) armed security guards at church in the US?!?!?!?!

she was a volunteer, and she used her personal weapon.

anyway, since guns are allowed in the u.s., it follows that crazy people sometimes get access to them. so having armed security guards at any place where large crowds congregate makes sense. malls, stadiums, and yes, megachurches.

that's reality for ya.

stupid me. i forgot one important detail -- there had been a shooting the same day nearby, and apparently, the volunteer security guards were enlisted to help as a safety precaution that particular day. i don't think armed security guards at that church was a regular thing...
