Hero Off-Duty Cop Who Shot MN 'ISIS' Attacker Is Competition Shooter & NRA Concealed Carry Trainer

The off-duty cop who stopped the "potential" terrorist attack at a Minnesota mall on the same night as the New Jersey and New York terror bombings is a 2nd Amendment enthusiast, gun shop owner and NRA instructor.

Jason Falconer was carrying a weapon the night of the attack inside the Crossroads Center Mall, a mall which forbids people from bringing in "firearms or illegal weapons."

Avon Police Chief Corey Nellis told MPR News the fact that Falconer happened to be shopping there and carrying a weapon was nothing less than "divine intervention," adding:

"If I was going to ask anybody to fire live rounds in a crowded mall I would trust his abilities next to anybody's.

Clearly, he's a hero. He was the right person, at the right place, at the right time."

The attacker, dressed in a security guard outfit, was identified by Minnesota Somali community leaders as Dahir Adan.

This is why I don't go to "gun free zones" anymore. I don't like feeling like a duck in a shooting gallery!
