Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized the Governor of Texas for signing a bill that allows law-abiding Texans to defend themselves with firearms in places of worship. On Sunday, an armed man stopped a gunman in Texas after the gunman opened fire during church services.
The shooting happened as parishioners took part in communion at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas. It's been reported that one person was pronounced dead at the scene, another died en route to the hospital and another remains in critical condition.
Service was being livestreamed at the moment the gunman opened fire with a shotgun and was quickly taken out by an armed citizen. The video is below.

Joe Biden recently told reporters that it was "irrational" to allow law-abiding worshipers to defend themselves in church.
"With all due respect to the governor of Texas," Biden began, "it is irrational what they're doing. 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 ... I mean it's just absolutely irrational. It's totally irrational."

For some reason, Democrats can never understand that people prepared to violate our laws against murder won't be stopped by the sight of a gun-free zone sign. In fact, mass shooters will likely be looking for gun-free zones knowing that law-abiding citizens will be defenseless. The man who took out this killer before he could kill anybody else is a hero, and Governor Greg Abbott is a hero for not infringing upon the man's constitutional right to defend himself.
