Jack Wilson, the Texas church hero who took down an active shooter in six seconds using his own firearm, is stressing the importance of fighting for our Second Amendment rights, saying he believes if we lose them, we’ll lose all of our rights.
In a video recently released by Turning Point USA, Wilson gave an exclusive interview in which he discussed the events of the December 29th shooting at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas and also took the opportunity to highlight just how important our constitutionally granted Second Amendment rights are.
“Without the Second Amendment, in my opinion — very strongly — you will lose all of your rights,” said Wilson. “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, who was awarded The Governor’s Medal of Courage by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, gave some interesting details and insight into the deadly shooting that resulted in the tragic death of two churchgoers.
“When the individual came into the building, it was obvious that he did have a wig and a fake beard on,” he said. “We were watching the individual. I had gone into the audio-visual room and actually had them put a camera — one of the cameras specifically on the individual, just to observe and watch.”
“The individual got up and went back and talked briefly to Tony, and that’s when he turned with the shotgun,” he continued. “He had pulled a shotgun out of his pocket, or coat — and then by that time, Richard and I were both drawing our firearms.”
“Richard told him, ‘Drop the gun, drop the gun.’ He shot Richard, immediately turned and shot Tony Wallace. I had people in front of me that prevented me from taking a body shot — a torso shot — and the only shot I had was the head shot. When I took the head shot, the subject went down. From the time the individual turned with the gun in his hand, to when it was over was a total of six seconds.”
“It doesn’t start at that moment that you need to be able to protect yourself,” Wilson pointed out. “You have to learn to use a firearm that you’re comfortable with, become proficient with it, train with it.”
Wilson noted that “from the time the individual turned with the gun in his hand, to when it was over was a total of six seconds.”
“God gave me the training, gave me the mindset to be able to stop the situation,” said Wilson. “We are all in mourning for the loss of Richard and Tony, and the congregation is in mourning for them, and also trying to understand and deal with what happened.”
“But I don’t feel like I killed an individual,” he added. “I killed evil. I took out evil.”
That is exactly why it is so crucial that our Second Amendment rights are protected. Without our right to bear arms we are subject to evil and, make no mistake, a tyrannical government becomes evil after it has stripped all its citizen’s rights away.
Wilson is exactly right when he says without our Second Amendment rights we will lose all our rights. The government will officially have free reign to do as they please. The will of the people will be a thing of the past and the Constitution will be effectively worthless.
We have to collectively resist the left’s persistent efforts to infringe upon our right to keep and bear arms. Get involved in local and state politics. Join marches like the one in Richmond on Monday. Elect candidates who vow never to enforce unconstitutional gun bans. It’s on the local level where the Democrats are starting to plant the seeds for the national destruction of the Second Amendment, so this is where we must be vigilant, active, and involved
