The parent of Eric Talley -a Boulder, Colorado police officer murdered during this week’s assault at a local supermarket by a 21-year-old suspect- said his son would be “deeply offended” should the incident be used to legislate new gun restrictions.
“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,” Homer Talley told TMZ.
He added: “Just because some wacko goes around shooting people doesn’t mean guns need to be taken away. You can’t take away enough guns to protect this country.”
“My family and my son are people of faith, we understand forgiveness and that is necessary for not just the shooter, but for ourselves,” he added.
