‘Everybody Is Going to Be OK’: The Difference a Gun Makes

Posted on Apr 28, 2013

An image of St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church taken from the church’s website.

“Four people hurt in Albuquerque church stabbing,” reads the L.A. Times headline. “Hurt” being the key word there. According to police and in the words of the church’s pastor, “It sounds like everybody is going to be OK.”

Those aren’t words you expect to hear when a pistol or assault rifle is in the mix.

According to early reports, a man in his teens or 20s jumped from the pews to attack the choir’s lead singer with a knife. He was eventually subdued by the flock.
