DeFuniak Springs Police host security forum for churches

America is Not Having Bad Luck With Mass Shootings

The Texas shooting revealed how gun control laws have failed in our country.

Law enforcement reminded people to make security a top priority in church. "I can't tell you how many states", Garcia said. Several others who had been injured were still being treated after the shooting occurred.

"This is really an act for us against evil, to say we're gonna fight evil with good", Pastor Paredes said.

He says church members will have to decide whether to demolish the church, but plans are also being discussed to build a new structure nearby.

This month a small Sutherland Springs church fell victim to a mass shooting. Bullet holes were filled. The bullet holes have been filled as well and the church's pews, the carpet and all equipment had been removed. The walls, floor and pulpit were painted white. A red rose was tied to each chair, and a pink rose for the unborn baby. "It could very well happen here", DeFuniak Springs City Marshal, Mark Weeks said.

Pomeroy, whose 14-year-old daughter was among the slain, said November 12 in a brief address, "We have the power to choose, and, rather than choose darkness, like [the gunman] did that day, I say we choose life", according to CNN.

Nine Days after the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, a viewer sent an email to our Verify Team regarding gun possession by convicted felons in the state of Texas. Nonetheless, the frequency and visibility of mass shootings could eventually contribute to calls for solutions that might involve more thorough screening of gun purchases - something anathema to Second Amendment proponents.

The church had initially planned to hold the service at an adjacent community center, but the organizers chose to move the event to a massive white tent erected in a baseball field after realizing that hundreds wanted to attend. "Combine that with fairly free access to guns and you end up with a deadly cocktail", said Nelson.

Even though Man of Steel, Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were pummeled by reviewers, all were box-office hits. A Dark Knight who tends to do things solo, Batman is "the glue that holds them all together", Affleck says.

"I want everyone that walks in there to know that the people who died lived for their Lord and Savior", Pomeroy said according to CNN.

Church officials had expected about 500 people to attend Sunday's service but dozens more chairs were added.

"One of the arguments coming out of this is politicians and media saying we need to stop saying thoughts and prayers, and for me, that's not something that needs to be said right now", Patnode said. He said this as he fought back tears.

The Texas church shooter was able to purchase a gun legally despite being convicted of domestic violence in the past, slipping through the background check system. But such thinking misses something more fundamental: producing mass shootings is what America does. His daughter was known as Annabelle R. Pomeroy. "And I guarantee without any shadow of a doubt they are dancing with Jesus today".

The crowd stood, clapped and raised their hands to heaven as Pomeroy spoke.

Hundreds of worshipers gathered at a basketball field in Texas amid spitting rain and heavy clouds to worship with the First Baptist Church survivors on Sunday.

The front three rows are reserved for First Baptist Church members and their families, as a steady rain falls on the tarp roof while church-goers slowly file in.
