Jason Falconer, owner of Tactical Advantage LLC shooting range, is the man who took down a 22-year-old Somali immigrant who began stabbing people at a St. Cloud Mall, on Saturday.

 

The terrorist reportedly asked his victims if they were Muslims before stabbing them. Then Falconer came along as an American hero and shot the immigrant.

 

In addition to owning Tactical Advantage, Jason is also a USPSA shooter, 3-gunner, NRA-certified firearm instructor, former chief of the Albany police department, and still practices as a part-time officer.

The strange thing about this incident though, is that the media is seemingly, and conveniently, leaving out the fact that he is a firearm instructor and trains people how to do exactly what he did.

But Falconer has consistently been identified in the mainstream media only as as a “former police chief” and  “off-duty police officer.”

However, no matter how the media may try to portray him, he is a hero. St. Cloud Mayor, David Kleis, stated, “Clearly he is a hero. Officer Falconer was there at the right time and the right place,” he continued, “None of us ever want to have to do that but that’s what we’re here for, and Officer Falconer’s actions were swift and direct, and in my opinion appropriate.”

Due to his teaching though, it could have just as easily been one of Falconer’s students who took down the terrorist. Thankfully he happened to be shopping at the mall on that dreadful day, ending an incident that could have potentially harmed many more people.

    Did he pass the background check for that knife and was it properly registered?

    “Gun Free Zone” = “Free Kill Zone” . Liberal policies are getting people killed .

    Falconer attended a 4 day handgun course in 2009 at Front Sight Training in Parumph, NV. It is a basic handgun course and basics are fundamental to accurate shooting. I’ve been there and recommend it for CC citizens, male and female. Amazing learning curve even on a two day course for novices.
    Additional training is always good, but the basics have to be learned and instilled first.

    Thanks bro! Dare I say nice grouping! Sometimes clips just aren’t large enough! Only way to be safe is to be trained, competent and licensed to carry and have the training and experience to know when to exercise your right to protect yourself and your family, or others in harms way. That is all of our responsibility! Thank God you understand our 2nd Amendment. Allah Akbar! Keep your powder dry. Reach out if you get down Texas way. I owe you some brisket!

    Thank you, Jason, for being the hero to so many people in the situation. Thank God for our 2nd Amendment rights. I carry proudly and, even though I pray I am never faced with such a situation, I also pray that I will be ready to protect the lives of myself, my family & friends and innocent bystanders.
