The father of Texas attack witness Kevin Jordan appeared on The Ingraham Angle show Tuesday wearing a T-shirt that said “Buy a Gun, Annoy a Liberal.”
On November 5, Breitbart News reported that Kevin watched his neighbor run out with an AR-15, take a defensive position, and shoot the church attacker.
Kevin told KENS5:
Our neighbor, who’s a very good guy, a very big Christian, he’s the nicest person on the planet [and] will do anything for anyone around here. We’ve known him for years, he’s childhood friends with my dad. He came with his [gun] and he took cover behind a car and he shot the guy. I’m not sure if it was inside the church and the guy was coming out, but if it wasn’t for him the [attacker] would not have stopped.
Kevin’s father, Mike, told host Laura Ingraham that no one in the church was armed at the time of the attack. He said that one of Kevin’s friends normally carries a gun with him, but left it at home Sunday morning.
Mike said, “A small town like this, you know, people show up to church, they disarm, leave their guns in the car, because you don’t expect something like this to happen.” He talked of how things could have been different if, in fact, that congregant had brought his gun with him, saying, “If you have one person on the inside that is armed to return fire, it may not have stopped people from dying, but it would have … been a distraction, it would have got that guy’s attention.”
Throughout the interview with Ingraham, Mike wore a T-shirt that said, “Buy a Gun, Annoy a Liberal.”
