WHITE SETTLEMENT, TX – DECEMBER 29: Authorities work the scene after a shooting took place during services at West Freeway Church of Christ on December 29, 2019 in White Settlement, Texas. The gunman was killed by armed members of the church after he opened fire during Sunday services. According to … Stewart F. House/Getty

Texas pastor Britt Farmer praised law enforcement for their rapid response to his church Sunday and thanked government for allowing parishioners to be armed for self-defense.

Farmer is the pastor at West Freeway Church of Christ, the site of the December 29, 2019, attack wherein armed parishioners took out a gunman almost immediately after he fired a round.

ABC News aired video of Farmer praising both the response and “kindness” shown by law enforcement.

He then shifted his attention to armed congregants, saying, “We lost two great men today, but it could have been a lot worse. And I am thankful that our government has allowed us the opportunity to protect ourselves.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed legislation allowing parishioners to be armed following the November 5. 2017, Sutherland Springs, Texas, church shooting.
