America's Most Heavily Armed Church

The most talked about topic in America right now is gun control. Weapons and ammo are flying off store shelves and people are beginning to protect themselves on a whole new level. One couple in particular, Pastor Larry Allen and his wife Lilli, are pistol-packing preachers who run the New Life Baptist Church and Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The church is protected by an ex-police security team, and all of the students are warriors when it comes to gun safety drills and procedures.

In this clip that was filmed for episode three of VICE on HBO, Thomas Morton gets to experience what a fully loaded security team could do to anyone who tried to invade the church.
