Jack Wilson, the 71-year-old hero who shot and killed a mass shooter at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement last month, was presented with the Medal of Courage by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Monday.
From Texas.gov, "Governor Abbott Presents Governorís Medal Of Courage To West Freeway Church Of Christ Hero Jack Wilson":
Governor Greg Abbott today presented the Governor's Medal of Courage to West Freeway Church of Christ hero Jack Wilson at the Governor's Mansion. The Governor thanked Jack for his willingness to risk his own life to protect others in the congregation, and expressed the state of Texas' enduring gratitude for Jack's heroic actions.As the AP reports: "Wilson, a firearms instructor who trained the West Freeway Church of Christ's volunteer security team, shot the attacker once in head after he opened fire with a shotgun in the church's sanctuary. Wilson's single shot quickly ended the attack in which two parishioners, killed 64-year-old Anton 'Tony' Wallace and 67-year-old Richard White, were killed."
"'When events arise, you're going to do one of two things. You're either going to step up and do what's right or walk away. And I'm not one to walk away,' Wilson said in accepting the medal at the Texas Governor's Mansion."
As Gov Abbott noted in his speech, the only reason Wilson was allowed to be armed was because Republicans passed a law allowing parishioners to carry guns in places of worship after the deadly mass shooting at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church in 2017.
