    In the Las Vegas shooting, a civilian named Joseph Wilcox drew his concealed weapon to try and stop the shooters who had killed the two cops. He was shot in the back by the female as he confronted the male suspect. Las Vegas Police have labelled him as a hero (rightfully so) who tried to stop an active shooter.

    Thanks for your heroic efforts Mr. Wilcox. Rest in peace my friend.

    May you have a special place in Heaven, Mr. Wilcox. Thank you for attempting to defend yourself, and others.

    You should read what the anti-gun trolls are saying about the Mr. Wilcox... harping about how CHL holders are useless in active shooter situations and other crap. Makes me want to throttle those a@*$^#* by the neck.

    TWO professionally trained cops didn't fare any better than the armed citizen. I guess they shouldn't be allowed to own or carry guns either according to the gun grabbing commies.

    In any case he put himself at risk with no duty to do so and sacrificed everything to try to save other people's lives. That's the textbook definition of a hero. So the leftwingers can snort a bag of AIDS, eat a bowl of gangrenous dicks and die in a fire. I'd trade 50 million of those worthless socialist fucks for 1 Joe Wilcox.

    Thank God this guy helped to prevent what could have been a far worse situation. Every individual life loss is equally tragic, but this man sacrificed himself to keep the sum as low as possible. RIP Officers, and good citizen.
