Right Rev. Rowland writes, "What would the outcome have been if there were responsible members of the congregation there that morning who were trained and licensed to carry concealed weapons? I predict that Rev. Fred would only have been wounded, and that the gunman would have died after his first or second shot. Oh, and two others would not have been stabbed, requiring surgery. God is not against guns. God is not even against violence when it is used in the defense of others. The sooner churches, Christians, and our community leaders figure this out, the safer we will be."
