You've read the bestselling book, now meet the man who SHOT BACK
"Grenades were exploding in flashes of light. Pews shattered under the blasts, sending splinters flying through the air. An automatic assault rifle was being fired and was fast ripping the pews - and whoever, whatever was in its trajectory to pieces. We were being attacked!"
"Instinctively, I knelt down behind a bench and pulled out my .38 special snub-nose revolver, which I always carried with me. I would have felt undressed without it. Many people could not understand why I would carry a firearm into a church service, but I argued that this was a particularly dangerous time in South Africa"
Charl Van Wyk was just an ordinary Christian man until July 25, 1993 - the day that would become known as the St. James Massacre. It was on this date that Van Wyk shot back at the terrorists who were attacking an innocent congregation gathered in prayer, and saved many lives in the process. More than just a remarkable story of courage under fire, "Shooting Back" deals forthrightly with the consequences of his actions that day, while addressing the concerns that plague so many God-fearing people in these lawless times:
- Should we carry arms?
- When is it appropriate to defend ourselves and our families?
- What can we do when our God-given right to self-defense is legislated away from us?
In "Shooting Back," Van Wyk tackles these difficult questions, using the light of Scripture and insights from his own experience to make the case for self-defense.
Now, for the first time ever on video, Charl Van Wyk tells his story. The documentary also features interviews with Gun Owners of America President Larry Pratt and a final message by WND founder Joseph Farah, who produced this first presentation of WND Films.
