In Texas, armed parishioners quickly stopped a massacre. However, in New York, unarmed victims had to rely on “throwing furniture—a chair, an end table, a coat rack.”
Over the weekend, there were two horrific incidents involving religious worshippers and crazed assailants—one attacker wielded a machete, the other was armed a shotgun.
The first occurred on Saturday night, when a “masked, machete-wielding man barged into a Hanukkah celebration and stabbed five people at a rabbi’s home in Monsey, New York” reported the Daily Beast.
During the attack, one of the intended victims “began throwing furniture—a chair, an end table, a coat rack” the Daily Beast subsequently reported, before the suspect fled.
On Sunday morning, however, a church service in Texas turned deadly when an assailant armed with a shotgun killed two of the more than 200 parishioners in attendance.
In the Texas incident, however, the killer was quickly put down with a single headshot by the head of the church’s security team.
The entire incident at the West Freeway Church of Christ lasted six seconds, according to authorities.

The head of the church’s security team, Jack Wilson, is being credited with taking out the killer.
“The events at West Freeway Church of Christ put me in a position that I would hope no one would have to be in, but evil exists and I had to take out an active shooter in church,” stated Wilson on his Facebook page. “I’m thankful to GOD that I have been blessed with the ability and desire to serve him in the role of head of security at the church.”
“I am very sad in the loss of two dear friends and brothers in CHRIST,” Wilson stated, “but evil does exist in this world and I and other members are not going to allow evil to succeed.”
Seeing posts starting to come in that the hero who stopped the Texas church shooter is Jack Wilson, the owner of On Target Shooting Academy.
From ~50ft he drew his weapon under pressure and fired one shot to the terrorist's swiftly moving head in just 2 seconds.

Some anon broke down the footage from the shooting at the Texas church earlier on and no less than seven of the congregation members happened to be armed including one elderly lady (no. 5).
Ain't no messing around down that way by the looks of things.
