First Baptist Church, Dallas
Pastor Robert Jeffress, an evangelical adviser to President Donald Trump, said in an interview with Fox News that he estimates up to half of the congregation of his megachurch carries concealed guns during service. Jeffress said he saw nothing wrong with the widespread carrying of guns in his congregation during church services, as he believes that would ultimately prevent would-be mass shooters from accomplishing their evil goals.
“I’d say a quarter to a half of our members are concealed carry, they have guns and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. They bring them into the church with them,” Jeffress said.
“I think it does [make you feel safer] and I think, look, if somebody tries that in our church, they might get one shot off or two shots off, and that’s the last thing they’ll ever do in this life,” Jeffress added.
