Meet the man who 'took out' the
active shooter at a Texas church

Original Article

It was a position Jack Wilson said he hoped no one would ever have to be in. Wilson was one of the congregants who shot and killed a man Sunday after the man opened fire in a church near Fort Worth, Texas. Out of everything that happened, there is one moment Jack Wilson keeps replaying. "Probably Richard [White] getting shot, and knowing at that point, as the shooter turned toward Tony [Wallace], that this is gonna happen," said Wilson. The gunman has been identified as 43-year-old Keith Thomas Kinnunen of River Oaks. Kinnunen shot two people before he was killed in the Sunday morning attack

Comments:

Wilson saw his friend, in the process of drawing his gun, shot by the attacker. Armed defenders will obviously be the first targets of would be mass murderers. This article also mentions Wilson's (excellent) pistol and caliber choice: Sig Sauer P229 in .357 Sig, the second most powerful semiautomatic cartridge behind its big brother, the 10mm auto. The attack lasted six seconds. Some on the Left aren't happy. 'Twasn't supposed to be this way.

The anti-2A crocodiles, always prepared to weep en masse into the Potomac on a moment's notice, were thwarted this time. Their pent up tears are as painful as teenage blue balls. The idea that a counterattacking good guy with a gun (with several other defenders in reserve) probably saved several dozen lives is unthinkable to the killjoy kill everything Left. One 125 grain jacketed hollowpoint traveling at approximately 1400fps (.357 Sig is actually a 0.355 inch 9mm bullet launched from a necked down 10mm case) is quite sufficient to spoil the day of any two-legged predator and most all four-legged ones as well.

If the democrats running Virginia get their way, we will never read a story like this in Virginia. Unless of course, the sensible citizens of that state band together and storm the state capitol and voting booths to toss out these democrats.

This gentleman realizes that evil does exist in the world and is willing to call it out. The left absolutely refuses to recognize anything or anyone as evil. They prefer to make excuses for these perps instead. Those who stick their heads in the sand are part of rhe problem. I'm looking at you, Beto. However your head unfortunately is stuck elsewhere. Thank you, Mr. Wilson.

The perp had a criminal record involving drugs, assault, and weapons offenses. It was already illegal for him to even be in possession of a gun.He was a mentally disturbed drug addict, the exact type that liberals demand us to feel sorry for, and want to release from prison. They also want to legalize drugs, so that this type can be well supplied. Then, ban gun ownership so law abiding citizens are at the mercy of criminals, like him, and dependent on government for protection.

A good article. .357 SIG to the head is going to be extremely effective, splashy. Too many folks getting UP was a problem. Seems to me that unless you are going to be shooting, getting DOWN would be the best move. And the BS "retired FBI-agent" stuff was just purely fiction, apparently made up by the kind of NYC folks who can't imaging ordinary folks who are good shots, honest, God-fearing people who don't WANT to hurt anyone, but who are aware that evil does exist and some of us need to be ready, skilled and able to take on that evil if the need arises. Well done, Mr. Wilson, you are a good man, and did a good thing. Thank you, sir.

#3, when you do training scenarios, six seconds is a long time. Plenty of time for a draw, perfect sight alignment, wait for a clear lane, and squeeze off the shot. But, also, it is a very short time for the bad guy to be able to continue to cause harm. It is likely that Mr. Wilson experienced tachypsychia, a neurological phenomenon where a person under great stress will perceive that all those around him are moving in slow motion, and will be able to smoothly and quickly carry out his critical tasks, while feeling unhurried inside his own head. This is very common of well trained shooters in a life-or-death shooting situation.

Ever since it was discovered that several armed churchgoers drew their weapons to stop a gunman at a church in Texas last week, the anti-gun mainstream media types have been trying to tell the public that armed, law-abiding citizens are a bad thing. The New Year's Day installment of media malpractice hyperbole arrives courtesy of the nauseatingly leftist USA Today: "@USATODAY Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he's a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that's terrifying."

There have been several times in modern history when political idealists have set out to remake the world. The French Revolution in 1792, for example, attempted to redefine time: "When people who study the French Revolution read about the Uprising of Vendémiaire or the Insurrection of 12 Germinal An III, most simply scratch their heads and wonder, Vendémiaire? Germinal? An III? What's that all about? Few ever bother to learn what these dates mean. In fact, they are part of the French Republican Calendar, aka Revolutionary Calendar, which replaced the Gregorian Calendar in France from 1793 to 1805."

The reason why public business should be conducted in the open, according to Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times, is that abuse and conspiracy thrive in the dark. "Civil rights advocates have been warning for years that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the entire Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act system of issuing secret warrants are rife with potential for abuse; are handovers of powers to secret sources that better belong in the hands of duly elected and appointed judges conducting business in open court; and are flagrantly, blatantly unconstitutional.

By 2017 it was obvious that the 20th century institutions were reeling under the impact of the information revolution. The old hierarchies and the authority they had wielded from prestige, authority and celebrity were, if not in a state of collapse, at least badly degraded. The leak of secrets showed how incompetent and mendacious the elites were and the MeToo and Jeffrey Epstein affairs demonstrated how venal.

Maybe we should be afraid of the growing level of political incivility. The Hill quotes president Trump as suggesting that what comes around goes around. "And I tell you what, someday there will be a Democrat president and there will be a Republican House, and I suspect they're going to remember it," Trump said. Rep. Will Hurd put it more prosaically.

What Democrats once hoped would be a bipartisan act — only the third time in U.S. history the House will be voting to impeach a president — is now on track to be a starkly partisan roll call Wednesday. No Republicans are breaking with the president, and almost all Democrats are expected to approve the charges against him. A raucous town hall Monday in the

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts. He was a serious

This time it’s about Chelsea Manning, formerly named Bradly Manning (he did legally change his name). Manning was serving a long prison sentence for stealing and trafficking in highly classified information about American military and intelligence . He passed it on to Wikileaks, who widely distributed the information. Unlike the DNC emails Wikileaks published, which were purely political in nature and not government documents, what Manning stole put lives in danger.
