Church Safety

A gunman entered the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 27 and injuring 30 others at a Sunday religious service.

Also, Hillary’s stance on gun control is already being tested in courts, with a recent case dismissed that would have allowed gun manufacturers to be sued, like tobacco companies were, for injuries and deaths caused by their products. Expect more challenges to come in a Clinton presidency. read more
