A man went to church, but not for the reason that most people go. However, he did end up meeting his maker face to face.
An Alabama man was shot and killed by a church goer after he attempted to rob a Baptist church.
Concealed Nation reports:
Dothan First reports that 26-year-old Steffon Tolver looked to score some easy money by robbing people on church grounds.
LT. Brian Smith said, “He completed one robbery in which he received roughly $50 dollars and proceeded to try to rob someone else and the second person had a handgun and shot the suspect while he was in his office.”
He continued, “They were getting ready to go on a youth trip and they were working late to get ready for the trip in the morning.”
It was 10:30 p.m. on a Sunday. Workers were there prepping for the next week.
Some were confused as to why a church member had a gun on church grounds. However, Smith backs them.
“In a church or not wherever you are you have the chance to defend yourself in your home, you have certain additional rights,” he said.
Religious buildings have targets on their backs — regardless of faith. There is someone, somewhere, who does not want that faith to exist. So carry. You will be glad that you did.
Many people think that because someone is a Christian and goes to church that they do not carry a gun. I am here to tell you that isn’t true. As you can tell by this story, we aren’t afraid to shoot either.
