    "Starting tomorrow, things won't be the same here." St. Cloud mall Islamist stabs 8.

    Anderson said the man reportedly made at least one reference to Allah and asked a victim if they were Muslim before attacking them. But he declined to call it an act of terrorism, saying the motive was still unknown.

    "We will be diligent and get to the bottom of this," Anderson said. "Starting tomorrow, things won't be the same here."

    Five minutes after authorities received the first 911 call, Jason Falconer, a part-time officer in the city of Avon, shot and killed the attacker.

    ....

    Falconer, who was shopping when he confronted the attacker, is the former police chief in Albany, which is about 15 miles northwest of St. Cloud, and the president and owner of a firing range and firearms training facility, according to his LinkedIn profile. His profile says he focuses on firearms and permit-to-carry training, and also teaches “decision shooting” to law enforcement students at St. Cloud State University.
    Once again, good guy with a gun stops bad guy while on duty police are still nowhere to be found. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that the un-named mall is a GFZ either by law or by property owner choice?

    Gotta love AP reporting.

    Is anyone else getting tired of the "terrorist" label used by the G? Is everyone that commits a crime a terrorist?

    Soon speeding in a school zone will be construed as a act of terrorism against school children..

    Keep this in mind, the words public safety and terrorist are government created terms to "erode" our rights.

    Can't they just stick with the term " hate crime".

    Folks are getting so brain washed with the whole terrorist theory.. I over heard a guy in a pub today call the quarterback for the San francisco 49ers a terrorist for kneeling during the National Anthem, clearly the gentleman with the double digit IQ at the pub was indeed entitled to exercise his first amendment right regarding the quarterbacks actions however using the term 'terrorist" clearly was ingrained unto him via the Government.

    I can see it now, you are open carrying your weapon in public, you are creating a public safety issue, you are a terrorist for terrorizing your neighbors with that vile weapon on your hip... See where Im going? One nine letter word can slowly start to erase many of our Rights..

    Yes, it was subsequently reported that mall is a GFZ.

    There is a state with a statute prohibiting Going Armed To The Terror of The Public. Meme Magic; Let's Git'er Done!

    More information for you

    http://gunwatch.blogspot.com/2016/09...e-weapons.html

    The mass stabbings that occurred at the Crossroads Center (Crossroads Mall) in St. Cloud occurred in a gun free, weapon free zone. It appears that the armed citizen who stopped the attack was not allowed to legally be armed in the mall. The armed citizen was an off duty officer from another jurisdiction.

    From crossroadscenter.com:


    Examples of specific activities that are prohibited include but are not limited to:

    •Disruptive profanity, vulgar or threatening language
    •Unnecessarily blocking walkways, roadways or storefronts
    •Running, horseplay or disorderly conduct of any nature
    •Excessive loitering
    •Operating unauthorized recreational and/or personal transportation devices in the shopping center
    •No firearms or illegal weapons

    It is a GFZ though MN law prohibits landlords from banning carry.

    Also of note, though Falconer was an off duty cop, he's also a permit to carry instructor, USPSA shooter and 3-gun competetor.

    GATTOTP is much a non-issue even in the state (NC) of origin.

    The statute is vague and could apply to almost anything/tool.
