The Second Amendment is alive and well in Texas, and thank God for it!
Because it may have just saved hundreds of lives.
That’s right, just as the Constitutional Founding Fathers envisioned, the right to bear arms is an important counter-measure against evil. Whether that be the evils of a government out of control or the evils of a man who would open fire in a crowded church on a Sunday.
You see, the bad guys will always find a way to get a gun and wreak havoc. The only question is whether surrounding citizens will have the right and opportunity to fire back.
Thank God in Texas they did.
In particular, a neighbor to the church in Texas, who as of this moment is still unnamed. He apparently saw the tragedy unfold and began firing right back at the evil Devin Kelley.
Kelley most likely was not expecting anyone to fire bullets back in his direction, and the surprise caused him to get in his car and flee…possibly saving the lives of hundreds of people at the scene. Incredible!
Here is the amazing eye-witness story, as told to ABC’s KSAT.com:
A woman says her boyfriend witnessed the end of the church shooting in Sutherland Springs and, with the help of a neighbor, gave chase to a person they suspected was the shooter.
Summer Caddel said her boyfriend, Johnnie Langendorff, called her moments after the shooting at First Baptist Church and told her that he saw a gunfight between the shooter and a neighbor, who was returning fire.
Langendorff then told Caddel the suspect — identified at Devin Kelley — then got into an SUV and drove away, and the two gave chase.
While on the phone with 911, Langendorff told his girlfriend the chase came to an end near a sharp curve near country roads 307 and 539.
Caddel understood that to mean the Kelley crashed. Moments later law enforcement officers arrived, she said.
She also said she has not spoken to her boyfriend in hours and that his phone was taken as evidence.
At least 20 people have been killed in the shooting, according to Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt. Many more have been injured, authorities said.
The shooter was killed after a brief chase north into neighboring Guadalupe County, according to Guadalupe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Robert Murphy. The chase ended when Devin Kelley took his own life.
