Jack Wilson, Savior Who Took Down Gunman at Texas Church, Credits Video Games For Training Him

Jack Wilson was hailed as a hero after stopping a gunman who shot two members of the congregation in the Texas town of White Settlement. The gunman was planning on committing a mass murder, but luckily Jack Wilson was able to respond and take him out, saving many lives in the process.

“Never shot a gun in real life, but I played a lot of Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto behind my parent’s backs. I feel like that really prepped me for the situation,” Jack Wilson told reporters. “Once he walked in with that long coat, wig, and fake beard, I was instantly reminded of one of the missions in Operation Crosswind in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.”

Wilson managed to take out the gunman from several feet away with a single shot, despite being in a crowded area in a high stakes situation. “Yeah, gotta give a shout out to my boys Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto for that one,” he said, “It really taught me a complete disregard for human life that enabled me to take that shot and save all those NPCs.”

Wilson, 71, is running a campaign for county commissioner in Hood County and plans to provide free video games for all.
