Why is Joe Zamudio being overlooked?

He is the young man who helped subdue the Tucson killer. He was in Walgreens buying cigarettes & heard the shots. He ran TOWARDS the gunfire & took the safety off his own gun. In interviews he says he never goes anywhere without his gun. Why wasn't he sitting next to the president at the pep rally? Why will he not be sitting next to the First Lady at the State of the Union spectacle?

There's a reason for that

He almost shot the wrong man. Gun toters need to give up the fantasy that they can stop one of these shootings. Even trained law enforcers make mistakes in gun battles.


It's because of his last name. It's un-American.

If he had a good, solid American last name, like Smith, or Wesson, or Obama, he'd be a shoo-in for martyrdom.
