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.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
