Church Shooting Hero Wants To Protect Us All
Seventy-one-year-old Jack Wilson saved his congregation when he pulled his gun and eliminated the deranged shooter that had opened fire on West Freeway Church of Christ near Fort Worth, Texas. If it had not been for this hero or one his fellow armed congregation members there is no telling as to how many would have died. Wilson received a medal for his bravery but he doesn't feel like a hero and feels it is far more important to spread a different message. Wilson wants people to know that the Second Amendment protects the rest of our rights.
During an interview with Turning Point USA, Wilson stressed just how important our second amendment is.
“There’s evil in the world, Be prepared to protect yourself. I killed evil. I took out evil. I spent six years at Texas Army National Guard, 30 years in the defense world, D.O.D. world, had my own business for 21 years teaching people how to shoot,” Wilson started. "It doesn’t start at the moment that you need to protect yourself. You have to learn, choose a firearm you’re comfortable with, become proficient with it, train with it.”
He then pointed out an important truth.
“Without the Second Amendment — my opinion, very strongly — you will lose all other rights. The firearm is not the evil thing. The person behind it is either good or evil. It’s not a firearm issue. It is a person issue.”
Wilson later humbly explained that he doesn't feel he is a hero.
“I did not do what I did … for hero status. I don’t see myself as a hero,” Wilson modestly said. “My role is more of a protector for anyone who happens to be in the congregation…God gave me the training, gave me the mindset, to be able to stop the situation.”

This is great that he is using his fame to stand up for our rights. It just shows that he is worried about more than just his congregation, he is worried for all of us. It's not every day that someone will use their fame to better America.
