On Friday morning's edition of "Fox & Friends," the gang continued its stellar (kidding!) coverage of the shooting at a Charleston, South Carolina church that left nine people dead.

Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck interviewed former secret service special agent Tim Miller about how to protect our churches from another attack like this.

"On the end of this harsh news, this wretched, evil killing, churches now are wondering, 'What do we do to keep our people, worshipping God, safe?' And now they're stepping it up. Should pastors pack heat in church?"

Miller argued that while he doesn't think that pastors should be "packing heat," he does think that members of the congregation should "step up" and work to protect their places of worship.
