    cops are civilians. a cop and a non LEO civilian were the two who killed the Texas shooter. both were armed-the non LEO provided cover for the cop who shot the killer. Two civilians with weapons stopped a mass killer

Just think... what I said a month or so ago is coming true. If they can't get a gun to do it then they'll use a knife, ball bat or whatever they can. A nutjob doesn't care what he uses to create chaos, he only wishes to do so. If he could use a nail gun to do the job, he would.
    Actually, they are probably thinking, "imagine all the inane things gun nuts are going to be saying, like, should we ban knives now?"

    It is interesting to consider how the outcome may been different if the guy had a gun. On one hand, he may have been able to kill more (any) people, but on the other hand, gunfire elicits a response that a "mass stabbing" would not.

    I am not sure there is an in between solution that could really seriously reduce gun deaths. The number of people saved by smaller magazines and assault weapons would probably be close to nil. It may be that we either ban guns outright, or don't ban anything we haven't already banned, and if we did ban guns, the majority of people saved would be likely be suicides prevented. But that probably doesn't matter much since an outright ban, ala Australia, is almost certainly impossible in America, I know I would oppose it. Universal background checks is probably the best policy we could pass, it won't make a huge difference, but it is no more intrusive than the policy most of think is already in place.

    CIVILIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES

    For some reason, many police departments disagree with your rather narrow interpretation of "civilian"

    Seattle
    Civilian (non-sworn) police employees are responsible for many of the important functions within the department. Because SPD civilian employees work directly with police, you are required to pass a background check and be comfortable in a law enforcement environment that handles sensitive and confidential materials.
    Tucson
    Non-sworn Positions at TPD

    You can serve in the Tucson Police Department without actually becoming a police officer. TPDís non-sworn positions are jobs filled by civilian employees. Non-sworn employees donít go to the academy and donít wear the uniform, but still serve in a variety of vital roles for TPD.
    Orlando
    The Orlando Police Department employs responsible civilian employees to handle many non-violent crimes and service type calls. The purpose is to allow police officers additional time to handle more serious criminal type calls and to perform appropriate proactive enforcement activities.
    A 1993 DoJ press release with what appears to be a definition of civilian that differs from what is federal law
    The nation's more than 17,000 state and local
    police and sheriff's departments had 840,647
    full-time employees as of June 30, 1992, the
    Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) announced
    today. BJS, a Department of Justice agency,
    said 603,465 of these men and women (or 72
    percent) were sworn officers with general
    arrest authority and 237,182 (28 percent)
    were non-sworn civilian employees.

    "These same state and local law enforcement
    agencies also employed about 90,000 part-timers,
    including 39,200 part-time sworn officers," noted
    acting BJS director Lawrence A. Greenfeld.

    "During the last six years the number of
    civilian personnel in police and sheriff's
    departments has grown about twice as fast as
    the number of sworn officers
    ,
    It does appear that the colloquial definition of "civilian" is operative in police departments across the country.
    ďAnd I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.Ē

    Federal law is what matters and under federal law-civilian police are just that civilians. Same under international law. Some cops try to pretend they are different than the rest of us civilians. however, the chief civil law enforcement officer in the USA is a civilian-AG Eric Holder.

    only drooling morons think that nut jobs stop killing because cops confront them.

    if a cop without a weapon approached a nut job, the cop would be dead.

    so whatever point you think you are making is retarded. people with guns stop violent killers.

    Just because some black people happen to attend the college doesn't mean that the college teaches pimping. And just because someone is black doesn't mean that his goal in life is to be a pimp. As for Lone Star College itself, they are a decent career school for learning a "gray collar" trade. The company I work for has hired people from there, and they have turned out to be exemplary employees.

    On the other hand, maybe you are right, and Virginia Tech teaches people how to make sushi while giving karate kicks to evil overlords from Hong Kong.

    BTW, the knife wielder at Lone Star Collge was white.

    Sorry to come down on you so hard, but your post was not only over the top where it comes to racial stereotyping and prejudice, but it was also quite dumb.

    In three months Obama will fly the victims to DC on Air Force One to testify on the new knife control legislation.
