The recent shooting at the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas is a dramatic case study in the virtue of armed self-defense by ordinary citizens. A maniac pulled a shotgun from under his hooded black trench coat, jumped up and opened fire, killing two parishioners. Jack Wilson, a deacon and member of the well-trained church security team, sprang into action along with four other armed team members who had been monitoring the suspicious-looking assailant. In 6-seconds it was all over. Wilson shot and killed the assailant, saving the rest of the 240 congregants from what could have been a massacre.
