According to Reuters, Combs said, “All of us here are not going to turn the other cheek while you shoot us.” He said these things both in response to the heinous attack on the A.M.E. Church in Charleston and as a way of explaining his church’s security policy.

Responding to reports that alleged Charleston gunman Dylann Roof reloaded five times during his attack, Combs said, “If they had security, the assailant would not have been able to reload.” He went to say, “We aren’t looking to engage people in violence, but we are going to practice law enforcement…and we are going to interdict if someone comes in with a weapon.”

Combs has various people who concealed carry in his congregation. Heaven forbid someone tries this at his church, they won’t be successful.
