TKC EXCLUSIVE FACT CHECK!!! RADICAL RIGHT WING 'GOOD GUY WITH GUN' RHETORIC EXPOSED: OFF-DUTY COP STOPPED LENEXA COSTCO THREAT!!! INSIDER SEYZ: SUPPORT POLICE NOT POLITICO KEYBOARD WARRIORS!!!



Social media rhetoric shot from the hip and missed yesterday afternoon in their efforts back up the stupid NRA talking point that gunfights in the streets make us all safer.

The headline:

Off-duty officer kills man brandishing a gun at Lenexa Costco

Now, to be fair, the officer who put his life on the line to protect people in the store is, in fact, a very good guy.

A description of heroism:

“There was a cop in there shopping so he wasn’t in uniform. When he found out what was going on he pulled out his gun and his badge and held it up to let everyone know he was a cop . . .".

Shortly after, people who had evacuated the store heard gunshots coming from inside."

Okay . . .

SO THE "GOOD GUY" WAS A VERY WELL-TRAINED POLICE OFFICER NOT SOME YOKEL CCW DWEEB WITH A BAD ATTITUDE AND WORSE AIM!!!

Last year, a good Samaritan in Shawnee saved a woman from attackers with his weapon . . . The Samaritan was A RETIRED AIR FORCE OFFICER PACKING HEAT.

And so . . .

Let's get over the myth that keyboard warriors are going to rescue innocent people . . . That NEVER happens. Instead it just ends up costing those old fools money like in the case of trigger happy Prez Trump supporter David Jungerman who lost a $6-million+ verdict and still gets cross-eyed looks over the murder and unsolved cold case of Tom Pickert.

We put in a message to one of our po-po friends who offered just a bit more insight on the Internets rhetoric surrounding this off-duty police shooting.

"If anything, this is another sign that community outreach by law enforcement works. I see a lot of so-called Conservatives talking trash about police just as bad as 'Black Lives Matter' when it comes active shooter situations. But the facts show us that having law enforcement build trust with the community is the best way to fight nearly every form of crime. I don't have a problem with people defending themselves but let's be realistic - This case in Lenexa shows us that the police are part of our communities and they work to protect people both on and off-duty. This isn't a knock against CCW, it's just a the truth that police are putting in more gun training every week than a hobbyist. It's our job."

Again, don't get it twisted TKC rabidly supports CCW and the 2nd Amendment. But the fantasy that armed d-bags in MAGA hats are going to help anybody but themselves to a 3rd or 4th sandwich needs to be shut down for the safety of us all.

Just thankful that nobody was hurt. The officer deserves recognition.

Greedo said...

Support the 2nd Amendment, not the NRA because they're just a gun industry lobby.

Anonymous said...

The legal consequences of shooting a person are far to high to make it realistic. A smart CCW owner would have only protected himself, not anyone else. Part of good training to a lesson in the laws that favor criminals and perpetrators of gun crimes in the U.S.

Lenexa is the new Raytown.

Fuck that lawyer and it's too bad that those old guys on the Indian Creek Trail were not carrying a gun.

Call me naive, but I appreciate the willingness of police (especially off-duty) to “serve and protect.” Had the cop not acted at Costco yesterday, that could have been a nightmare.

Ask the people who were in Costco whether they agree that the "good guy with a gun" meme is bunk.

Kansas Scout said...

Your "facts" are completely wrong about armed citizens not saving anyone. You will find that they do nearly every day. As for the retired Air Force officer, he was no well trained professional. Unless you were in combat in Iraq or Afghanistan you probably only shot your pistol briefly at training when you entered the military. No pro gun people "shot themselves in the foot over this. The cop was still a good guy with a gun.

Sorry, but I missed all the controversial talk over this issue.

Don't understand what all the ill feelings toward CCW are about. I'd sure as hell want members of the community with CCW practicing their right, than allowing douchebag criminals to knock-off my local stores without interference!

What do you call an off-duty cop? A civilian!

Give me your retired, reserves, and active-duty military
Give me your first responders
Give me your hunters and fishermen
Give me your blue-collar tradesmen
Give them all a CCW and a training class for Christmas
I'll give you a safer community within weeks.

Funny how you use this situation to mention Trump, the gun may have been purchased during the Obama administration for all you know. Still having nothing to do with it Tonylib.

Have to agree with Greedo @ 4:20, screw the NRA.

I joined the NRA as a "Life Member: in 1962. After hearing rumors in the late 90s (the early LaPierre era), I did some research, verified three cases of the NRA officially endorsing "Anti-Gun Republicans" over "Pro-Gun Democrats", (and yes, they both exist), and sent in a blistering letter demanding cancellation of my Life Membership.

I still get renewal demands from them three of four times a year, but that is just an indication of their desperation over declining membership.

CCW = Scared douches.

They are a nuisance and they're record sucks. Let the police do their job, we don't need cowboys in KCMO or the suburbs.

KPS said...

Conservative snowflakes are so easily debunked. They are against cops when it is convenient and they talk a lot of trash behind their screens. The also support the Confederacy.

Right winger CCW = Dangerous traitor.

Take their guns away, they don't deserve them. They don't believe in America.

^^^ Take your meds. Get a grip.

Someone whose had decent CCW training and education is just as valuable in a shooter situation as a cop -- sometimes more. Contrary to what you say, cops don't hit the shooting range for recurrent training nearly as often as they should.

Who cares. Morons with guns. They help clean the gene pool by removing theirs from it every day. Carry on threepers. High comedy!

I do too.

I can only imagine what could have happened in that store, if he hadn't have been there. Costco on a Sunday during the Xmas season.

Still no word on the shooter. How positively odd.

TKC is fucking GAY--the only thing "exposed" in this story is the fact that Kansas is much safer and SANER than it's KC Metro counterparts."Armed d-bags in MAGA hats" are Western Civilization"s best hope of preservation ! This is why Kris Kobach will be our next Governor and no Jew-contrived, underhanded communist PAC will so much as put a dent in that certainty ! CCW is a major reason that Kansas is still a safe place where White People can raise a family.

^^^Except for that nasty shooting of those Indian fellas in that bar in February. Oh and that hate-filled shooting at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park in 2014. Oh yea and those three Kansas men arrested for plotting to bomb an apartment complex in Garden City Kansas. Oh yea and there was that shooting that killed three people and wounded 14 at Excel Industries in Hesston in February 2016. Oh and don't forget that shooting in Lawrence KS that killed three outside a bar last month! Oh and there was also that KC KS police officer shot and killed in July of 2016. Oh yea and a second KC KS officer was shot & killed in may of 2015...don't forget him! So there moron.
Where were the MAGA hats for those? Doesn't sound safe to me at all. Sounds like a third-world hell hole actually? Dumbass!

An off duty cop carries a gun because he writes tickets and throws people in jail, mostly poor people he's thrown in jail to be specific. The off duty cop hangs in Lenexa because they have a shared hatred for poor, black & brown. The days of the gun toting hero are over if you're under 70 years of age.

Anonymous said...

Yeah right. A shared hatred for the poor, black & brown. Look at the numbers.

So, you cited a grand total of less than 27 shot in several counties in Kansas, with less than half those dying as a result...
...ANY is too many, but your list of those actually killed in Kansas is far less than Killa City's tally this year.

And Free KC, how many innocent people could have been killed in the time it would have taken police to respond to 911 (even with JoCo’s) quick response time?

Not to mention, some of those KS murders you cited were committed by a Miseryian.
