South Texas pastor says congregation will carry concealed guns

By  | 

(KRGV) - A Texas church is taking action to prevent an attack like the one in Sutherland Springs.

Twenty-six people were killed when a gunman opened fire during service on Sunday morning.

The pastor at El Faro Bible Church says his congregation will not be vulnerable because he along with some of his parishioners will always be armed.

Jaime Chapa says for 30 years he’s led the congregation at his church in Sullivan City.

After hearing about the horrific events at Sutherland Springs, Chapa says he will carry a handgun with his concealed handgun license when he preaches.

Chapa says security guards are financially out of the question for the small church.

The pastor goes on to say that protecting his church is his responsibility.
