Jack Wilson runs the volunteer security team at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas.
On December 29th a gunman opened fire on the congregation, Mr. Wilson, a firearms instructor and a former reserve deputy sheriff, immediately jumped into action.
He fired one shot at 43-year-old gunman Keith Thomas Kinnunen, and killed him, preventing further loss of life that day.
On Monday, January 13th, Gov. Abbott will host Mr. Wilson at the Governor’s Mansion to present him with the Governor’s Medal of Courage. The medal is given to civilians who display “great acts of heroism by risking their own safety to save another’s life.”
It is the highest award given to civilians by the Governor and nobody deserves it more than Jack Wilson.

It’s nice to see Governor Abbot recognizing great American heroes like Jack.
Meanwhile, don’t expect to see this story being highlighted on any of the liberal media. This story destroys the left’s silly “gun control” argument so they’ll avoid it like the plague.
