You couldn't tell the difference between trains passing and machine gun fire. It went on for a good 45 minutes and scared the hell out of me.
    Note to myself: ban guns. The days of the rootin' tootin' west are over.

    Do you understand that those black gang bangers he was talking about are in an area where guns are BANNED, machine guns especially.

    Yes, when criminals/crazies threaten the life of a police officer.

    What we have proven is that people that are intent on committing the act, will. Your fixation on one item as if you somehow have a 'point' is both fascinating...and comical!

    They obviously weren't legal gun owners...

    You could ban guns all day and these idiots would still have them. Hell, drugs are banned and that is probably why they were fighting in the first place.

    You really don't get it do you?

    IOW, you have no evidence; just speculation



    LMAO...your struggling here.
    That;s what people always say when they're losing



    And here we go back to the causation = correlation. By the fact that most mass shootings happen in gun free zones and not areas where you would expect guns (like police stations) tells us there is a highly probable correlation.
    Just because you says so, doesn't make it true. So far, there is zero evidence for this in this shooting (and the mass shootings), but that doesn't stop the dishonest from insisting that ot's true





    I'm not writing a legal document. You know we are talking about mass shootings.
    I'm flattered that you think I cab read your mind, and I understand how desperate the "guns are good" crowd are to link GFZs to all shootings, but in a thread devoted to a non-mass shooting, there's no ewason to assume that a reference to shootings refers only to mass shootings.

    hardly a study but this is the best I can find right now: "Statistics indicate that about six hundred criminals are killed each year by police officers in the United States. Some of these killings are in self-defense, some are accidental, and others are done to prevent harm to citizens. By comparison, about 135 officers are killed in the line of duty each year. When you consider their ratios in the general population, proportionately far more cops are killed by civilians each year than the other way around. In most cases, an officer’s taking a life occurs in the context of trying to save a life. "

    Does it actually need to be explained? I would think any functioning adult would be able to figure it out.

    Police officers are not civilians. They are government agents. You wanted me to distiguish between "criminal" and civilian, and I asked if you held the same standard. But you don't. You do not defend the civilian, but the State...the Authority. You will excuse cops if crazies threaten them; but what if the Cops are the crazies? Would you excuse the civilian defending himself against the cop? What if it's civilian vs. crazy? Do you support the civilian being able to take similar action against crazy? Or is it just the authority. Government may do as it pleases, but the individual not at all; that must be regulated and controlled.

    It didn't need to be explained, there are dogs who could understand the conclusion. You do not make the same distinction for civilians, by your own words.
