(Tea Party PAC) – The latest shooting is not one that is working out for the personal narrative of the Democrats.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden recently attacked the governor of Texas for allowing church-goers to carry weapons in their houses of worship.
How ironic is it that whenever a group of worshipers are viciously attacked somewhere they couldn’t have carried weapons, the left is all about their right to gather and worship peacefully, but whenever they make themselves a hard target, they’re attacked?
Well, literally, in this case, sadly.
But in September, Biden was verbally attacking the governor of Texas for this very thing.
His statements, of course, are facing new scrutiny after a gunman opened fire on the congregation of the West Freeway Church of Christ in northwest Texas Sunday, only to be stopped by armed church-goers.
At least four people, including one security guard, pulled weapons in response to the shooter, The Gateway Pundit notes.
But a few months ago, Biden told members of the press that they should be outraged over Texas Governor Greg Abbott signing a bill into law earlier this year which allowed lawful gun owners to carry firearms in places of worship.

“Dealing with firearms, it is irrational, with all due respect to the governor of Texas, irrational what they are doing,” Biden told reporters on September 2.
“On the very day you see a mass shooting … and we’re talking about loosening access to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship, it’s just absolutely irrational. It’s totally irrational,” he added.
The law went into effect on September 1, and likely prevented more death and carnage on Sunday. One person was injured and one worshipper was killed, as well as the gunman.
“We have learned many times over that there is no such thing as a gun free zone. Those with evil intentions will violate the law and carry out their heinous acts no matter what,” Texas state Senator Donna Campbell, co-sponsor of the bill, said in a statement. “It makes no sense to disarm the good guys and leave law-abiding citizens defenseless where violent offenders break the law to do great harm.”
