Wilson, who’s running for Hood County Commissioner, explained his motivations in a Facebook post earlier this year:
“There once was a time the President was honored, police were respected, newborns were treasured, & vets were revered. Let’s bring that back… “
That naturally makes him an enthusiastic Donald Trump supporter.
Following the shooting, Wilson posted an update to his campaign page (Washington Examiner):
In a post to his campaign page, Wilson addressed the church shooting and requested prayers for the victims and their families.
“I just want to thank all who have sent their prayers and comments on the events of today. 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 exist and I had to take out an active shooter in church,” Wilson wrote.
