NRA Instructor Stops the Slaughter of Innocents

This is really an amazing feat of the two heroes who stopped the crazy leftist who murdered so many people while they were in church.  If they had not been there more people would have been murdered. It is very sad to see this tragic loss of life, and no joy can be found there.  Stephen Willeford is a hero, but his heart will forever be pained wondering if he could have done more.  You can see the pain in his face and in his words you can feel it.

Breitbart News

The hero who stopped Sunday’s Sutherland Springs, Texas, attack with an AR-15 is a former NRA instructor who retrieved his rifle after his daughter ran into his bedroom to tell him she heard gunshots at the church.

CNN described Stephen Willeford as someone who grabbed his AR-15 before he grabbed his shoes. He ran out of his home barefooted, rifle in hand, to engage the attacker, Devin Kelley. Willford positioned himself behind a car and shot the attacker as he walked out of the church during the attack.

Once shot, Kelley fled the scene.

Willeford, gave an emotional interview to KHBS and stressed that the people he went to help were friends of his, that “they were family.”

He said, “Everytime I heard a shot I knew that probably represented a life. I was scared to death. I was. I was scared for me and I was scared for every one of them and I was scared for my own family that just lived less than a block away.”

He recounted coming to the church, waiting for Kelley outside, then opening fire: “He saw me and I saw him. I was standing behind a pickup truck for cover. I know I hit him. He got into his vehicle, and he fired another couple rounds through his side window. When the window dropped, I fired another round at him again.”

Once Kelley took off, Willeford jumped into a truck with eyewitness Johnnie Langendorff and literally chased the attacker until he died. Langendorff said of Willeford, “He’s very much a hero. He acted quicker than he could think … He did absolutely the right thing, which was try and take [the attacker] down on the scene.” He said Willeford was “just taking a nap and heard the gunshots and reacted.” Then he came out of his house “barefooted.”

Willeford stressed, “I am no hero. I am no hero. I think my God, my Lord protected me and gave me the skills to do what needed to be done. And I just wish I could have gotten there faster but I didn’t know. I didn’t know what was happening.”

That is the news the gun grabbers HATE!

The Air Force failed to tell the Feds about the shooter's Court Martial conviction.  Any Court Martial conviction is a civilian felony.  Die to that, he was able to "legally" buy the guns.  

I am sure the Air Force and the rest of the military is in panic mode checking to see how many more Court martial convictions have not been passed to the Feds.  I am sure troops will be pulling some 24 hour duty.

This proves that guns laws are not the answer.  The system can and will fail.  The evil doers ignore the laws. 

The hero proved the 2nd Amendment is working.

Only God knows how many more would have died if the congregation was forced to wait for the police to show up!
