I was in the 5th grade 33 years ago(same amount of time since he was RESERVE deputy) does that mean I'm still a middleschooler? Ridiculous.Of course he was.
But any LEO status he might once have had has nothing to do with why he was choosing to carry in church. The headline makes the sheep think it does.
Was. His place burned down in 2016 but he had his place for like 30 years. His old FB page for his school, people were saying they would chip in to get him back up again after thisThis article says he's a firearms instructor: Firearms instructor took out gunman at Texas church service
You're not arguing with me, are you? I'm agreeing with you.I was in the 5th grade 33 years ago(same amount of time since he was RESERVE deputy) does that mean I'm still a middleschooler? Ridiculous.
He stated on here just about a year or so ago that he was a member of a White Nationalist organization. Things got a little heated with the membership here and then it just died down, so that comment really isn’t surprising in the least.308, I agree with Rob here. I’ve been around this forum long enough and read enough of your posts that I’m sure you didn’t mean that the way it sounded - but seriously bud, it reads badly.
I think the poor guy knew it, and went for it anyway. Definitely allowed the other shooters to get a shot. Plus, with his getting shot, it made an easier decision for Wilson: the victim had to make the decision to draw and fire against someone who wasn’t actively shooting yet, there was still time to hope for a bloodless outcome. Wilson was able to not have to make that decision and just return fire.No way he was going to make it .
The muzzle was already on him before he even touched his gun.
That couple of seconds saved some other lives.
They are also disappointed that they can't use the ban the AR narrative since the shooter used a shotgun.The BB on point as usual
U.S.—The nation's media outlets announced they were grieving today as an armed citizen stopped a mass shooting."We grieve that this tragedy we could have exploited for weeks on end was stopped by a good guy with a gun," said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter on the scene.

"We grieve that this tragedy we could have exploited for weeks on end was stopped by a good guy with a gun," said one teary-eyed MSNBC reporter on the scene. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the shooter."
"We are absolutely heartbroken and in shock over here," said one New York Times journalist. "What could have given us weeks and weeks of frothing-at-the-mouth stories about gun control will now have to be suppressed since it does not align with our agenda."
News outlets also reminded the nation that they reserve the right to immediately bury mass shooting stories that don't help push their agenda.
Outlets like CNN, MSNBC, and ABC News confirmed that they carefully look over the facts of a given case to see if it lines up with the correct opinions before deciding to push it incessantly for weeks on end.
"While we usually would exploit a tragedy like this to push our gun control agenda, in this case, the facts don't really help us," said CNN reporter Bob Costanza, after a recent shooting was shut down by a citizen with a gun. "It's tragic that it ended that way, because we really could have gotten a lot of mileage out of that bad boy."
The media didn't even try to find children who were present during the shooting to parade around talk shows and put on the covers of magazines for a full year this time around.
My apologies. But people like her make me want to puke. They are the reasons why our 2A rights are under attack like never before. I would take 10,000 Fudds over one anti-gun puke. She should do what I do: sit at the desk, do the job and STFU!308, I agree with Rob here. I’ve been around this forum long enough and read enough of your posts that I’m sure you didn’t mean that the way it sounded - but seriously bud, it reads badly.
I joint that group in response to the latest federal gun ban proposals at the time. Friend said they were pro-gun and true to our shared southern heritage. I took it at face value. I should have done more research. My error.He stated on here just about a year or so ago that he was a member of a White Nationalist organization.

My search-foo sucks, but I’m sure it’s still here somewhere. Take it for what it’s worth.
That woman is a sick individual.And Shannon Twats chimed in and made herself look even douchier than she already does
Over the weekend, there was a shooting at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas. Two people were killed. The shooting occurred just before communion was about to be offered to the parishioners when a man opened fire with a shotgun (via DFW CBS Local):
Three people are dead, including the gunman, after a shooting at a church in the Tarrant County city of White Settlement, officials said.
Authorities responded to the shooting Sunday morning just before 11 a.m. at the West Freeway Church of Christ on Las Vegas Trail.
A witness told CBS 11 News the gunman walked up to a server during communion with a shotgun and then opened fire. According to the witness, another church member — identified as a former FBI agent and part of the church’s security — shot the suspect.
“It was the most scariest thing. You feel like your life is flashing before you. I was so worried about my little one,” Isabel Arreola said.
Two church members were killed in the shooting, while the gunman was fatally shot by the man who worked security.
(some tweets I'm not linking are in the story)
Yet, even if armed security wasn’t there, the congregation had more than a few people with concealed carry permits in the church. The point is simple: a good guy with a gun stopped a bad guy with a gun. Or in this case, multiple good guys with guns were ready to defend themselves and others in the church. It’s a no-brainer position that the anti-gun Left mocks or ignores because real life has slapped them so hard, they’re intellectually disabled. Good people with firearms defend their lives and the lives of others on a daily basis. While it’s not the Second Amendment’s intent, the self-defense aspect that comes with it is a popular position, hence the bunker mentality anti-gunners have for situations like this. Yet, it wouldn’t be the Left to just let this tragedy slide without offering their own garbage takes. Enter Shannon Watts, a Bloomberg lackey:
Former NRA spokesperson and conservative commentator, along with others, have been torching the Left’s reaction to this shooting.
“Bloomberg’s Moms Demand group is arguing that the hero and other armed church members should have been disarmed, resulting in further loss of life. In their world, only criminals would have guns and heroes deserve shame. Wow,” she tweeted posting screenshots of Watt’s takes on Twitter. Yet, Watts wasn’t alone.
The fact is a gun rights talking point was validated for the national media to see. The anti-gun Left knows this will create an obstacle to their anti-gun agenda. Their supporters will allow them to do nothing, so spout off nonsense is the default. Grab some popcorn because someone is bound to have an even worse take than the one spewed above.
Yeah, I see your point for sure. The anti-gun orgs first tried to spin it as TX passing laws to allow CCW in churches as the cause - but that fell flat almost immediately. They are moving on to try to define this with some stamp of government authority with a former LEO as the hero, in hopes of diminishing the "good guy with a gun" perspective.Millions read CNN. So CNN shapes the narrative for those millions. I'm just pointing out how they're altering that narrative so that our pro-2A message gets lost.
