Man Killed In Wal-Mart By Rightwing Lunatics Was Good Guy With Gun
Here is a funny thing! (It is not a funny thing.) Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31, the man identified by the Vegas coroner as the person who was killed by Jerad and Amanda Miller inside Wal-Mart after they executed those cops for the crime of eating lunch, was a good guy with a gun who was trying to stop the Millers' deadly "revolution"!
After the shooting, the couple headed toward a nearby Wal-Mart, where Jerad Miller was confronted by Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31, of Las Vegas. Wilcox was legally carrying a concealed pistol. Wilcox was unaware that Amanda Miller, who was pushing a shopping cart, was involved in the incident and “lying in wait,” the official said.
She slipped behind Wilcox and shot him at close range.
“He had no idea the wife was walking behind him,” the police official said of the murdered man. “This guy (Wilcox) was not some idiot with a gun. To me, he was a hero. He was trying to stop an active shooter.”
Thank you for trying, Mr. Wilcox. Unfortunately, your concealed weapon is no good when someone sneaks up behind you and shoots you in the head. We are very, very sorry you are dead.
