'My son would have been deeply offended to know his death would be used to promote gun control'

‘My son would have been deeply offended to know his death would be used to promote gun control’; Officer Talley’s dad speaks on King Soopers shooting
by: Dara Bitler
BOULDER, Colo. (KDVR) — Homer Talley, the father of officer Eric Talley, who was killed in the line of duty during a shooting at King Soopers on Monday, spoke with TMZ about his stance on guns.
Officer Talley’s father said his son was a staunch 2nd Amendment guy and he believes his son would hate to see his death used to promote gun control, according to TMZ.
His father also said Talley was a strong advocate for gun rights, and had an AR-15 he often used for target practice. He said he has seen the debate erupt over reforming gun laws, and although this tragedy cost him his son, he doesn’t blame gun access and doesn’t think Eric would either, according to TMZ.
Talley told TMZ, “My son would have been deeply offended to know his death would be used to promote gun control. Before he was an officer, he enjoyed shooting.”
FOX31 spoke to Talley’s father hours after he was identified as the fallen officer in the shooting.
“He was a man of heart who loved his job,” Homer Talley said. He described Talley as someone who loved his family as he leaves behind seven children ranging in age from 7 years old to 20 years old.

“We are absolutely shocked by what happened and our hearts are broken for the victims and families that are left behind,” John Mark Eagleton, owners of Eagles Nest Armory, said in a statement first reported by 9News. “Ensuring every sale that occurs at our shop is lawful, has always been and will always remain the highest priority for our business.”

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, lived not far from the Eagles Nest Armory. The Colorado Sun called the store on Wednesday to ask if it had ever sold Alissa a weapon and a person who answered the phone said they weren’t commenting “at this time.”

Eagleton on Friday did not say when his store sold a gun to Alissa.

Police say Alissa purchased an AR-556 firearm six days before the shooting. The gun is a smaller version of the popular AR-15 rifle.

On Friday morning Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said a semi-automatic Ruger AR-556 was used in the Boulder shooting and that it was purchased legally in Arvada. It is not clear whether the weapon the suspect purchased at the Eagles Nest Armory is the one used in the attack. Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty, when directly asked Friday if the AR-556 used the attack was purchased at Eagles Nest, declined to say.

“We have and will continue to fully cooperate with law enforcement as their investigation continues,” Eagleton said in his written statement

My sister died of Covid this morning.

She did not survive the Trump administration. This motherfucker's lack of everything on Covid killed my favorite sister. She was 72, in good health otherwise with two children and three grandchildren. She got sick around Christmas and was sick in varying degrees until she went on a ventilator and never came off.
