(National Sentinel)Â Massacre:Â Pastor Robert Jeffress toldÂ Fox News on Sunday that no amount of gun control legislation would have prevented the mass shooting atÂ the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, during services yesterday.
When asked why he thought Kelley would enter a church in full combat gear to kill, Jeffress replied,Â â€œI think President Trump said it earlier tonight, the reason is evil. Some people get nervous using the word evil [because] they think itâ€™s theological. Well, it is, but itâ€™s also true.â€
He added,Â â€œYou know weâ€™re hearing calls for gun legislation in light of whatâ€™s happened. Look, the problem with this shooter is not the weapon that was in his hand, itâ€™s the evil that was in his heart. And no legislation is going to eradicate that.”
Breitbart News reported that a good guy with a gun was able to squeeze off a few shots at Kelley, which caused him to leave the scene. Witnesses said that act alone most likely saved additional lives, as Kelley was armed with lots of ammunition.
KSATâ€™s Erica HernandezÂ said the good guy was a neighbor of the church who â€œreturned fire,â€ causing the attacker to climb into his car and flee the scene.
