News from the desk of Chuck Chadwick...

After the recent church shooting in South Carolina there were a lot of reporters calling both Carl Chinn and myself asking about guns in churches. I tried my best to answer their questions and give them the benefit of my thirty-five years of security experience. Most of the articles they wrote were very supportive of our efforts. But, alas, amongst all the fervor, I did not check out one particular individual, Andrew Miller, that I now know writes for a “European” magazine “The Economist”. I have to admit that I was “HAD”. The first time ever that I was mentioned as one of those mistaken “Americans”.

In his article “God, good guys and guns” the byline was; ”An understandable impulse to self-defense is nevertheless mistaken”. He quotes an anti-gun advocacy group; “The Violence Policy Centre, an advocacy group, points out that Americans who legally carry concealed weapons are far more likely to perpetrate mass shootings than prevent them; it counts 29 such events since 2007. And while gun-wielding bystanders rarely curtail killings, they may aim badly and confuse the cops.”

I remember in the interview he ask the question if I was afraid that an armed person might miss the bad guy and accidentally shoot an innocent bystander or be mistaken for a bad guy when the cops get there.

My answer, that did not make it into the article, was;

“If I heard gun shots coming from the children’s area, what MAN would dial 911 and craw in the corner and wait for the police to arrive because he was afraid of shooting the wrong person or be mistaken for the bad guy WHEN the cops get there? Knowing that each gunshot I heard could be one of our children being executed. I believe that I would run toward the sound of the gun fire and terminate the shooter with extreme prejudice! No warning shot or shouting to drop the weapon!”

He also wrote; “This dilemma is an iteration of a broader question: whether keeping guns makes people safer. A growing majority of Americans think it does—another mistaken conviction. Daniel Webster of the Johns Hopkins Centre for Gun and Policy Research says that, other factors being equal, keeping a gun at home is associated with a double or triple risk of homicide. What holds for homes is also true of states and countries: more guns mean more gun-related murders, tragic accidents and suicides.”

While I don’t want to dignify his anti-gun rhetoric with a response, I see this as an opportunity to tell churches that there are still those that espouse that without guns in America everything would be rosy and the violence would stop.

Yesterday there were two church bombing. If we were to follow reporter Miller’s logic; we need to get rid of all gun power and anything that is flammable and there would be no wars.

I think this American will take his chances that I’ll turn out to be a mass murderer with triple the risk of committing homicide and keep my American mistaken impulse of self-defense.

God Bless and highest regards,
Chuck Chadwick
