Texas Church Shooting: Concealed-Carry Law Prevented Mass Murder | National Review

Earlier in the year, to the dismay of the usual suspects, Texas governor Greg Abbott had signed a bill making it explicitly legal for Texans with concealed-carry licenses to bring their weapons into places of worship. These kinds of protections allowed Wilson to achieve something that no gun laws now being pursued nationally by Democrats has ever accomplished: He stopped a mass shooter. My guess is that Wilson, a former deputy sheriff, is the kind of guy who probably wouldn’t have broken the law and carried a firearm into church had it been illegal to do so. The killer, on the other hand, I’m wholly certain, would have been undeterred by any laws.

It's person control not gun control.

The video of the shooting is stunning. As most of the congregation ducked, a diverse lot of 4 or 5 members of the congregation stood, drew, and took proper aim, exposing themselves to gunfire in the process. Wilson's first shoot took down the assailant, and the others that drew had the discipline not to fire.
