I just knew they’d come out of the woodwork eventually. You blow someone away and then you thank God?
Jeanne Assam who has several years experience in law enforcement and carried her personal weapon when working as a plain-clothes security volunteer at the Sunday service, had this to say:
“I give credit to God,” Assam, 42, said.
“God was with me.”
I think Assam should have said: ‘I give credit to Mr Colt .45’ ‘Mr Smith & Wesson was with me’
…there were 15 to 20 security people at the church…
The poor gunman didn’t stand a chance! So its perfectly normal to have 15 to 20 armed (at least one was, so I’m guessing so were the others) security guards wandering around a church?

Or as someone said to me:
Depending on how you want to twist the facts, you could say that either ‘god’ killed several people, or he saved some! Or maybe it was just people behind it after all.
It was probably fortuitous that the church had an armed security officer, as by all accounts the gunman, Matthew Murray, was heavily armed, and Assam probably saved many lives. But to ‘thank god’ just doesn’t seem right to me.
