We are so glad no one was killed and are thankful for Leo and his heroic act!On Wednesday, FRC was the target of what the FBI is calling an act of domestic terrorism. A gunman, identified as Floyd Corkins, invaded our headquarters in Washington, D.C. armed with a 9mm pistol, approximately 50 rounds of ammunition, and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. The gunman was confronted by an unarmed member of the FRC staff, Leo Johnson. When the gunman pulled the gun from his backpack and aimed the weapon at Leo, Leo moved toward the gunman to disarm him. Despite being shot in the process, Leo was able to subdue the shooter and call for others on the staff, who helped admirably. One of the investigators, based on their preliminary findings, told me Leos actions saved a lot of lives.I was with Leo around midnight Wednesday night in the recovery room when he came out of surgery. I told him he was a hero — not just in the opinion of his FRC colleagues — but in the opinion of people all across the nation. Still a bit groggy from the anesthesia, he said, “This hero business is hard work!” Obviously, Leo hasnt lost his sense of humor.
