    Still another shooting

    This one in Colorado Springs, second shooting in CO in 12 hours, unknown if related to the one during the night in Denver.

    I heard on the news that the church had a security team and they shot and killed one of the shooters! In todays climate every church need a security team!

    Notice

    The church apparently maintains an armed security team. I had heard of this occasionally on PDO. Some churches have their CC members organized for overwatch duty. I have seen a few very large churches (the one in Colorado Springs is pretty good-sized) with off-duty LEO's but they seem to be traffic-oriented rather than "security" details. My parents church in Memphis is extremely large, numbering several thousand for services, and usually has 5-6 LEO's on-hand as services end. Something to think about in this day and age.

    Noticed a comment

    from the pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs that a group of "committed volunteers" were involved in beefing up security after the previous night's shooting in Denver. Something for individuals and congregations to think about.
