    But you might want to consider who the targets were before compared to now. If someone goes postal at work, we can at least kind of understand what might have been at issue. When someone mows down a classroom full of Amish kids or kindergartners, that is just so F'd up that it transcends gun statistics or reason or understanding.

    You see first hand outcomes with cops with weapons as a paramedic?

    It's abundantly clear that there are psychos out there that will kill several people for their 15 minutes.
    That's why the Media stopped mentioning the people who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. When they did suicides would go up, when they stayed silent about the jumpers, the numbers went down.

    With and without actually. The ones I listed were not cops, as they only shot someone who really wasn't armed on my watch.

    But this is what your responded to:

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You can bet it never happened in Chicago. That community is organized, and guns are banned.

    And placing his gun back in his waistband, the gun discharged, striking him in the backside.
    Arrested later at the Hospital.
    Nope, there were two, and they were trying to shoot each other, not others.

    Yes, I read that. Believe it or not, as a PhD physicist, I can actually read. You wanted to present that comment as some form of evidence as to why the individual should be restricted; which is why I asked the follow up.

    I'm assuming the person with power considered those under him to be too stupid to act responsibly.

    Was that your take as well?
