The fable of the Glock, and facts on guns

Once upon a time in the far away land of Austria, there existed a factory which was the abode of the evil Glock Family. One cold and dreary day a bouncing, two-pound baby Glock was born to the wicked parents. They named him Forty Five in honor of an ancestor known as Colt 1911.

As baby Glock matured he dreamed of immigrating to America — to reside alongside his sinful, infamous relatives like the Colts, Smith Wessons, Rugers, and other noble, evil kin.

Finally his dream came true. He was purchased in the state of South Carolina — miraculously making his way into an unarmed church — where single-handed he slaughtered nine innocent, black worshipers. Back in their fog shrouded castle, Family Glock reveled over young Glock’s success.

The rightwing kooks concocted some crazy theory that a deranged man had somehow played a role in the gun’s dastardly deed. The gall of the demented NRA —  and iniquitous Americans, who believe that the Bill of Rights still exist within that pesky old Constitution. How dare they attempt to steal glory from the heroic Young Glock!             

Now the hard facts: If you take your family into an unprotected church — or anywhere else — without lethal defense, you take your lives into your own hands.

There have been many church attacks in recent years and they all had one common denominator: There was no armed security.

Don’t take chances with the lives of your loved ones. Form a properly trained security team for your house of worship.  We have a great team at Charity Baptist in Kannapolis. (704- 938-7664) Contact us if you need help.
