Megyn Kelly, Dana Loesch, and other prominent conservative commentators took to social media on Tuesday, calling the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department “heroes” for their response to a mass shooting that killed six people at a Christian elementary school.

The host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast tweeted to her millions of followers: “Thank God for the heroes at [MNPDNashville],” following the release of the body cam footage from officers Rex Engelbert and Michael Collazo, who responded to the active shooter at Covenant School.

“Never ceases to amaze when you see courage like that on these tapes,” Kelly wrote about the bodycam footage. “Professionalism, bravery, respect for one another, honor.”

On Instagram, radio host Dana Loesch wrote, “The video is graphic and I’m not sure Insta will allow it. It shows heroic MNPD officers responding in minutes to neutralize a threat. Heroes.”

“We’ve always had guns,” she added. “We’ve not always had mass killers. It’s not the gun, it’s the breakdown in society.”

“People unserious about solutions won’t acknowledge that some mental illness induces violence, evil is real, and leaving people defenseless isn’t a defense,” Loesch concluded.

Outback’s Clay Travis wrote, “Michael Collazo and Rex Englebert were the brave [MNPDNashville] police officers who arrived at the school, ran to gunfire, and killed the trans murderer before she could kill more innocent people. They are heroes. Share their story widely instead of the killer’s name.”

Daily Wire host Andrew Klavan tweeted, “tremendous courage and initiative from [MNPDNashville] in taking down the Covenant School killer. Inspiring greatness in the face of evil.”

Country singer John Rich tweeted to his hundreds of thousands of followers, “These two young ⁦[MNPDNashville]⁩ officers are legitimate heroes for running straight at the murderer in Nashville yesterday.”

“There’s no telling how many lives they saved,” he added. “This is textbook precision on how to handle an active shooter, and we are grateful for their bravery.”


And these celebrities and conservative pundits weren’t the only ones showing respect for the first responders, as social media platforms were flooded with similar posts acknowledging their bravery and courage.
