Pistol packin pastor holds church burglars at gunpoint

Welcome to AmericaImage by alancleaver_2000 via FlickrLike it or not, we live in a world where even the kids don't seem to care about how hard we work, let alone have any kind of respect for property, churches and things in our homes. Now even though it's a select few. The Right to bear arms is for reasons like this. Not just for protection at times but, you never know what is going to happen in a short amount of time.
It's nice to see a Pastor that carries a gun for protection. Just like the founders of the great country. More people should be like this man. Helping to stop the crime and not putting all their hope in police that would have never shown up in time.
A big thumbs up for this pastor.
Two Beaumont, Texas teenagers are in police custody after a pastor found them burglarizing his church and held them at gunpoint until authorities arrived on scene.
Pastor James McAbee, who runs the Lighthouse Worship Center, says he had just finished up his service Sunday when he spotted two teenagers breaking into his church's youth .
Instead of waiting for police to arrive on scene, McAbee, who has a concealed handgun license, decided to take matters into his own hands.
"I went in with my own pistol and held them at gunpoint," he said.
McAbee says the two burglars, who are brothers, tried negotiating with him, but the negotiations soon turned into violent threats.
"I had them down on their knees with their hands in the air," he said. "One of them reached in their pocket and told me that he had a gun. I said 'sir, if you pull the gun, I'm going to have to shoot you.'"
Luckily the teen was unarmed and police were able to make the arrests without any problems
As for the youth center, it's being renovated, which is why McAbee believes that the two teens were trying to steal the church's power tools.
