Oh, it’s not legal to go amongst innocent civilians and spray them with dozens of rounds from military-grade weapons? I guess someone keeps forgetting to tell the shooters to be afraid of the legal consequences of murdering scores of human beings in a society that regulates toy guns more than real ones.

Since we’ve been unsuccessful at appealing to everyone’s better nature to observe all the rules of civil society, let’s arm our local community law enforcement agencies like they’re shipping out to “The War on Terror” TM.

We can arm them with surplus military-grade equipment and pay for it, when the federal government doesn't donate it, by ignoring the Fourth Amendment and the history of prohibition by confiscating the private property of citizens accused of engaging in a health problem. One that the rich and powerful use as a means of profit and control of vast swaths of the populace.

Having a local police department capably armed to do pitched battle with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan is very helpful in conveying to the public on TV how well prepared we are.

Especially when the crazy people, who decide they really like that AK or Uzi in the window with the thirty round clips that look so cool; decides to take it out for a spin.

Nothing reassures parents and families more than flipping on CNN and seeing hundreds of heavily armed combat swat units showing up after a mass murder to direct traffic at our schools while EMTs carry out the bodies.

As a lifelong hunter and gun owner I would like to personally thank Wayne LaPierre, the NRA, Congress and especially the Supreme Court for making sure we focus on what’s important and not infringe on the Second Amendment in any way.

Great job "Leaders".

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
