Jeffress, who is pastor at the megachurch First Baptist Church, Dallas, yesterday told Fox News: 'I'd say a quarter to a half of our members are concealed carry, they have guns and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. They bring them into the church with them.'
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt interjected: 'That probably makes you feel safer.
Jeffress responded: 'I think it does and I think, look, if somebody tries that in our church, they might get one shot off or two shots off, and that's the last thing they'll ever do in this life.
Fox co-host Brian Kilmeade added that mass shooters might not target a church where those attending are known to carry weapons.
