CNNs Beyond the Headlines piece

I was in a sports bar last night and saw CNN with 5 minute or so "Beyond the Headlines" segment titled "Tyler's Hero" which seemed to center around Mr. Wilson's actions. I couldn't hear anything said but it looked like it may have been interesting. Anyone catch it and care to comment about what was presented?

yesterday editorial in the Ridgecrest Daily Independent in California.

"Contrary to what gun banners and opponents of concealed carry laws would have us believe, legally armed citizens are not vigilantes at heart. Most are just like Mark Wilson; they care about their safety and the safety of their community. Under most self-defense statutes, and many state constitutions, they have a right to intervene, perhaps even a duty. Wilson lost his life while saving others and courageously defending his neighborhood with a firearm.

Residents of Tyler were blessed by his presence. The rest of us are diminished by his loss."
