Jack Wilson, the heroic volunteer security guard who stopped the shooting at West Freeway Church of Christ in December, criticized long-time gun control advocate and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg for the gun laws he is pushing on the campaign trail. 

Wilson told "Fox & Friends" that if Bloomberg had his way, then more people would have died in the shooting he stopped, within six seconds, because police arrived two minutes after 9-1-1 was called.

“Mr. Bloomberg, had we operated by his standards or his wishes, the carnage would have been significantly greater because the individual still had, after the shooting, still had seven live rounds in his gun and three more in his pocket," Wilson said. "Even though the police department did arrive in roughly two minutes from the time the first call went in, by that time, you know, the carnage would have been much, much worse."

Wilson used his SIG P229, that was chambered in .357 SIG, to take down a shooter, who was using a shotgun.

"If Mr. Bloomberg would have his security detail turn their arms in and not guard him, he would be in the same situation as many American citizens are every day," Wilson added.

Wilson was recently given the Governor's Medal of Courage by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for his heroic actions.

"When faced with an evilness that few of us can ever comprehend, Jack Wilson responded with strength, with bravery, and with love for those in the church that day. That is the kind of man that Jack Wilson is," Abbott said at the ceremony, adding, "Jack, I know that you have been reluctant to accept the label of being called a hero, but that is exactly who you are."
