A couple weeks ago in the “Plug of the Week” on the podcast we plugged Mike Seeklander’s new podcast called the American Warrior Show. In the most recent episode Mike interviews a man named Charl Van Wyk who took on 3 active shooters. Van Wyk had a 5 shot .38spcl revolver, and he was successful in ending the attack on the church against shooters with automatic rifles, grenades, and bombs.
“Violence is the immoral use of force. Self Defense is the moral use of force.”
I took two things away from the interview:
- Sometimes getting into the fight is all that’s needed to end the fight. It’s amazing how sending rounds toward bad guys makes them re-think their plan.
I’ve heard many times from church going people that nobody should need to carry in church. I agree, that in a perfect world one shouldn’t need to carry in church, but we don’t live in a perfect world. All people should be free to worship how they see fit, and they should be able to protect themselves and their brothers and sisters while doing so.
