Gun & LE Communities Raise $12,000 For Family of Concealed Carrier Who Confronted Vegas Cop Killers

Last week, the guys from Easy Bake Gun Club in conjunction with GunsSaveLives.net as well Matt from The Bang Switch, started up a donation page on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe to raise money for the family of Joe Wilcox, the heroic concealed carrier who confronted the pair of suspects who killed two police officers in Las Vegas.
The gun community as well as the law enforcement community really stepped on this one and nearly $12,000 has been raised in less than a week. However, we are shooting to raise $25,000 for this family.
If you can donate, even if the smallest amount helps. If you can’t donate, that is completely understandable, but consider sharing the donation page with your friends and family if at all possible. Remember, Joe Wilcox could be any of us who carry on a daily basis.
We’d also like to thank the law enforcement community for stepping up on this donation effort. Here are just a few of the donations made by the law enforcement community:
Of course we also want to thank everyone who has donated any amount at all as well.
Here are the comments made by LVMPD following the incident,
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal,
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.”
It wasn’t immediately clear if Wilcox fired a shot, or if he hit Jerad Miller before he died.
