Liberals on social media were quick to call for gun control in the wake of a shooting at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas during one of its Sunday morning services, despite an armed security guard killed the shooter right after the attack began, saving many lives.

Jack Wilson has been identified as the heroic security guard, who used his SIG P229 to take the shooter down with a single shot.

Despite Wilson's heroic actions, gun control proponents immediately called for stricter gun laws, with some ignoring the fact it was Wilson who was able to stop the attack six seconds after it had started.

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, of "hell yes, we're gonna take your AR-15" fame, tweeted, "what we are doing in this country, when it comes to guns is not working."

Gun control leader Shannon Watts downplayed Wilson's actions.

Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) placed blame on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Others blamed the National Rifle Association for the attack without evidence. 

Since the shooting was stopped by a good guy with a gun, liberal arguments have shifted to that it was still a failure because two people were killed. While of course it is tragic two parishioners were killed by this scum of the Earth, the attacker would have been able to kill many more had it not been for Wilson or the other attendees who were armed. It bears repeating that it would have taken an untold number of minutes for police to stop the shooter, where many more people could have been killed.

Families who would have been otherwise making plans to bury their loved ones are instead counting their blessings as there were people at the church who were prepared for such an event. Of course, it needs to be discovered how this monster obtained his firearm and if he was prohibited from having a firearm in the first place.
