Columbine Survivor Wishes There was a Good Guy With a Gun Like Jack Wilson on the Day of the Notorious School Shooting

Published

on

One of the survivors of the Columbine High School Massacre in 1999 wished there had been a law-abiding gun owner on the scene who could have neutralized the two assailants.

The survivor, Evan Todd, cited the example of Jack Wilson’s heroics at the Freeway Church of Christ near Fort Worth, Texas, where he stopped a potential mass shooting from taking place.

Todd was the first student to be wounded during this shooting rampage that claimed the lives of 13 people. He was allegedly the last person to speak to the two Columbine murderers before they committed suicide.

This experience taught Todd the importance of having school security in order to protect students, teachers, and staff.

“I stared down the barrel of a gun at Columbine, where 13 people were murdered and almost 30 wounded,” Todd tweeted.  “I wished then and now that we had a Jack Wilson that fateful day. The world would be a better place if there were more men and women like Jack Wilson.”

Todd commented in response to an article in USA Today which declared it “terrifying” that several attendees at West Freeway Church of Christ were armed that day.

In other words, [Wilson is] exactly the kind of man you want around with a firearm,” the article highlighted. “But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas. And that’s terrifying.”

In essence, the writer argues that it was good Wilson was armed because he was certified as a former sheriff’s deputy and firearms instructor. However, the ability of other gun owners — who could be less qualified to carry— is a cause for concern.

For people like Todd, it doesn’t matter how qualified an armed law-abiding individual is. Having armed people in an active shooter situation can potentially prevent massive massacres from taking place.

Sadly, gun-free zone policies, like those in Columbine, turn these areas into criminal safety zones.

Todd has every reason to praise Wilson and demand that his alma mater and similar institutions be allowed to have more armed personnel for security purposes.
