Father of Murdered Boulder Police Officer Lashes Out at Liberal Media for Using his Son’s Death to Promote Gun Control

This didn’t make any screaming headlines.

On Monday Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley ran into the King Soopers supermarket during a mass shooting. The killer, Ahmad Al-Issa, shot Eric dead along with nine other victims.

Officer Talley leaves behind seven children.

Eric’s sister tweeted this out after her brother’s death.

Officer Eric Talley was a courageous man and a hero.

And Officer Talley as a supporter of gun rights.

Now his father is speaking out against the liberal media for using his son’s death to weaken the 2nd Amendment.

According to 100% Fed Up –Officer Eric Talley was a staunch 2nd Amendment advocate who owned an AR-15. The father, Homer Talley, says his son was an AR-15 owner who would be extremely offended by the weaponization of his death against the 2nd Amendment.

His father lashed out at the liberal media this week.

Homer Talley tells TMZ Eric, an 11-year vet for Boulder PD, was a strong advocate for gun rights, and had an AR-15 he often used for target practice. Homer’s 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.

He told us, “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.”
