Texas Public Safety Director Says Heroes with Guns “Undoubtedly Saved 242 other Parishioners”

During a press conference, Jeff Williams, Regional Director for the Texas Department of Public Safety praised the heroic actions of the church members who shot down the Texas church gunman.

Jeff Williams:

It cannot be overstated how important it is that everyone recognize what took place here today.

The citizens who were inside that church undoubtedly saved 242 other parishioners, and that might get swept aside in this whole conversation about active shooter response, and God knows law enforcement has done a whole bunch of work to make our response better, we needed to do that.

But we’re starting to find out that, as the Lt. Governor mentioned, over half of these are over before we get there, and I want to commend the chief and his department, their response, it is never going to get faster than that, it was miraculous snd so the true heroes in this are the people who were sitting in those pews today and responded, the immediate responders that saved their fellow citizens.

I just can’t overstate how critical that is, I just want to recognize it, it’s truly heroic and this citizens of this community have a lot to be proud of for their response.
