Since the latest mass shooting of the Baptist Church in Texas, some churches have taken it upon themselves to warn of the consequences for anyone with ideas for their congregation. They have made it abundantly clear what to expect.
Lighthouse Mexico Church of God, a Pentecostal church in New York, decided to display a message reading, “We Say It Again. We Are Not A Gun Free Zone.”
Ronald Russell, the pastor of the church had this to say to Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt on Monday:
EARHARDT: So why did you decide to do this?
RUSSELL: To send a strong message that it’s not gonna happen in our church. I have like 40 kids, and they’re very valuable to us, and to have someone think they’re going to come in and shoot the place up — that’s not going to happen.
EARHARDT: You say — we’re looking at the sign right now — it says: “We say it again. We are not a gun free zone.” You’ve done this before, right?
RUSSELL: Yes we have. We’ve noticed in times past, ever since Sandy Hook, that these individuals — whether it’s in Sandy Hook, whether it’s in San Bernardino — people like to go to gun-free zones to shoot ‘em up. And we’re just putting out a warning that we believe in the Second Amendment, and we do carry, and it’s not going to happen in our church.
