Hear that, America? Joe Biden thinks the law that saved lives during last weekend’s church shooting is an “irrational” rule.
Last Sunday, an armed man entered a church in the Fort Worth, Texas, suburb of White Settlement and opened fire. But his act of terror only lasted a few seconds because legally armed members of the church responded with their own fire arms and shot the killer down.
Two members of the church were killed by the monster. And he was killed on the scene by those responding to his attack.

This was possible because the Texas legislature passed a law on September 1 that gave Texans the legal right to carry arms inside the Lone Star State’s churches.
Once the crazy killer opened fire, he was shot down in less than six seconds by the armed churchmen around him. This quick response would have put the responders on shaky legal ground without the new law.
Of course, there is simply no telling how many more people the killer could have murdered if the churchmen had been unable to respond as quickly as they did.
But this life-saving law would not be allowed if it were up to Joe Biden. He called the law “irrational’ only a few months ago.
The day after the Texas bill passed, Biden went on the attack.
“Dealing with firearms, it is irrational, with all due respect to the governor of Texas, irrational what they are doing,” Biden said early this year. “On the very day you see a mass shooting, and we’re talking about loosening access to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship, it’s just absolutely irrational. It’s totally irrational.”
In September, Democrat Joe Biden attacked TX Gov Greg Abbott for signing a law that let lawful gun owners carry guns into places of worship

That was not the first time Biden excoriated the idea of having people armed in churches.
Biden also criticized the man who stopped an armed killer during a shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, 2017. The former vice president insisted the good guy with a gun that stopped a killer should not have been armed.

It appears that Biden just doesn’t care if lives are saved as long as regular people are disarmed.
