USA Today hit for op-ed claiming it was ‘terrifying’ that Texas churchgoers were armed

The USA Today is being criticized for publishing an opinion piece on Wednesday arguing it’s “terrifying” that some Texas churchgoers were armed when Jack Wilson jumped into action and killed a mass shooter before he could shoot anyone else.

Wilson, a firearms instructor who was a volunteer member of the church’s security team, has been widely praised for his life-saving response, but Arizona Republic columnist Elvia Diaz found problems with the situation.

The piece, “Armed, even in church: Texas shooting is about a lot more than Jack Wilson’s heroism,” was published with the disclaimer that the views are the author’s and do not reflect USA Today’s leadership.
