USPSA Shooter, NRA Instructor Shot, Killed Somali Man on Stabbing Rampage

As we say at the range: "Good shootin.'"

Jason Falconer is the man who shot and killed the 22-year-old Somali maniac who went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on Saturday.

Falconer is the owner of Tactical Advantage, a shooting range and tactical training facility. He was also formerly the police chief of the Albany (MN) Police Department and is still a part-time police officer.  Falconer is an NRA instructor and a member of the United States Practical Shooting Association, a competitive pistol shooting association.

The media will not tell you those things. Bob Owens at Bearing Arms writes: "But Falconer has consistently been identified in the mainstream media only as as a 'former police chief' and  'off-duty police officer.'"

You can always count on the media to hush up any stories that follow the "good guy with a gun stops bad guy with a gun" narrative. Especially when the good guy trains other good guys.
