"Douglas A. French, of the National Review, while writing about Islam and terrorism, innocently drew up a half-truth: 'In Saint Cloud, Minn., Dahir Adan's family identified him as the man who stabbed eight people in a mall before being shot and killed by an armed civilian, an off-duty police officer named Jason Falconer.' So, what is the missing half of the truth? The heroic Mr. Falconer was armed, sure. And an off-duty cop. But he was more civilian than cop, for the weapon he had on him was concealed (by permit), and he is the owner of a gun range." (09/20/16)
