Not all people with guns are good marksman (nor the sharpest knives in the drawer) and in a public restaurant full of innocent bystanders, the likelihood of one of them getting hit is exponentially increased.
    Still way too early but the Review Journal article said that they did exchange gunfire with an armed CCW holder.

    "One unconfirmed report is that the two exchanged gunfire with a citizen who was carrying a concealed weapon, and that one of the shooters was injured."

    Maybe. The problem with these pretend situations is they can be manipulated to say anything. In one scenario, you're the hero, in another you are foolishly dead.
    It's not about being a hero. If you see a cop being murdered, fire. End of ****ing story.

    ...how are they going to stop illegal guns?

    Anyway...too soon and this really isnt about guns. Eco mentioned spice...a neighbor said he thought they were heavily into meth. Yeah...that would make more sense.

    Tragic.
    I did not start talking about US guns but just saying that for ME, and MY country, we like not having a lot of guns in the country.

    And Meth sadly is the root of a lot of evil in the US. It makes people really addicted and really nuts.

    That idea seems pretty dangerous to me. What would actuallyend up happening? Seems more likely that more innocent people would end up getting killed.

    Actually if that's the case, it should be about ANYONE getting murdered. Why do you stop at just police?

    A lot of things get reported like this;

    Asked about reports that during the incident one of the shooters had shouted “the revolution has begun,” the sheriff said he was unable to confirm that information. - Source

    except he shot two armed and trained people. Just what do you think one of the internet cowboys could have done?

    Only five people dead? How did this even make the news?
