  •  Oh bullshit. (10+ / 0-)

    Another tired argument.

    Another excuse to do nothing.

    As hunting has declined, the NRA has made sure its backers (the gun manufacturers) could find a new market. So they dialed back the emphasis on hunting and ratcheted up their "self-defense" crap which included selling assault-style weapons. And the NRA made sure selling these pieces of shit was legal by buying off Congress.

    Cops were outgunned for years, thanks to the NRA. And many cops paid for it with their lives.

    Suggested liberal gun lovers' motto: "More liberal than the NRA on everything except guns."

    •  and non-LEOs have to face the same problems (0+ / 0-)

      of being outgunned by criminals too.  In fact, they're the ones who are more likely to face a violent situation than a LEO.

      I simply don't see the evidence that police are any more responsible than the vast majority of gun owners - it's just easier for them (law enforcement) to get away with shooting someone.

      I see a very beautiful planet that seems very inviting and peaceful. Unfortunately, it is not.…We're better than this. We must do better. Cmdr Scott Kelley
