Something tells me that they had received threats before.

24-year-old Matthew J. Murray of Englewood, who was shot and killed by a member of the church's armed security staff.

I don't know many churches that have armed security, except maybe the Vatican, and some offshoot cults.

I’m glad they did have security but yes, I find it odd also.

The pastor approved the added security after the first church shooting the day before.

The "increased security" consisted of an armed parishioner volunteer, using her own gun.

That was enough, almost. Way way way better than not having her there.

This is a question that comes up frequently in other online fora that I watch.

It happens more often that you think. Often informally.
