Was the volunteer security guard ‘inspired by the Holy Spirit’ when she fired a dozen shots and killed the gunman at Colorado Springs’ New Life Church?:
a female guard with a drawn handgun turned a corner and walked toward the gunman and yelled "Surrender!" Bourbonnais said.
The gunman pointed a handgun at the woman and fired three shots, Bourbonnais said. She returned fire and just kept walking toward the gunman pressing off round after round.
The female guard fired off about a dozen shots.
After the gunman went down, Bourbonnais asked the woman, who has only been identified as a volunteer security guard with the church, how she remained so calm and focused.
Bourbonnais said she replied:
"I was asking the Holy Spirit to guide me the entire time."
Response: It might be controversial to some, but I do believe that she was strengthened and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Hundreds of Christians could have been killed in this incident except for the heroic and ‘inspired’ actions of this woman. What an incredible story!
(Kudos to Hugh Hewitt @townhall.com where I found it)
*Update: The Security guard shot the gunman multiple times, however, the coroner has ruled the death a suicide. Apparently the shooter finished himself off after the security guard put him down. *Top
