Just heard on local news (Colorado Springs, Co.) Police were called to a report of a person(s) with a gun. On arrival, police found members of the New Life Church engaged in training their newest 'missionaries' in how to deal with the possibility of being taken hostage while overseas. They claim to have been doing this training for 20 years now without a problem. In just the past month or so, they had some of their missionaries taken hostage in Africa, so they take this training rather seriously (and justly so IMHO). Police would not comment on whether or not charges were going to be pursued. New Life Church is very well known, it's absolutely huge due to the extremely large number of church goers. They occupy two very large buildings on what must be at least 50 acres. They have around 6,000 members in this area last I heard. They aren't some off the wall cult. So WTF is wrong with these "IDIOTS" that took rubber rifles from them. It's not like they don't know who these people are, it was huge news around here when they got their missionaries back, News media all over them as they disembarked the plane here in Co. Sounds like Waco mentality hard at work here, what do you think? Karl.

That doesn't sound like Colorado Springs at all. Sure it's right? Hell there are probably as many gun shops in Colorado Springs as there are in all the rest of Colorado, and over a third of the CCL holders in the entire state. Somethings missing from the report, or it was wrong.

Maybe the police were afraid they'd use them to fire rubber bullets???
