    Hardly a freak accident if it happened twice, is it?

    Not really, that was a superficial glace at the data is all.

    We don't know if it happened twice, nobody has presented the two stories to see if they are the same or not. Even if it was though, two shootings out of millions of kids with guns is not suddenly an epidemic.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Seems like it is so far, on his behalf. And I havent excused his murder.

    Also seems like you're a little hysterical right now. Cuz there was little that made sense in your post. Accustory hyperbole, yes.
    Not hysterical, (nice try at baiting).

    imo, protesting is much to do about nothing. that is there are better ways to induce change.

    My point, if people want to protest over a LEO shooting of a citizen, then they should be willing to protest when a LEO is shot/killed by a citizen.

    I am constantly horrified at the demand for gun control as some sort of "safety" idea when in fact it is religion; all the while the real carnage is on US highways.

    With the logic of anti-gunism, all roads should be banned, let alone cars, buses, trucks, motor cycles et all
    It is so darn odd that you make the exact same argument that liberals do about guns and cars.

    Weird huh? Because I'm one of them and not the only one.

    Talk about logic! Real solid ground you're on there!

    By the way. In case you didn't know, the guy was caught with the help from the same community that some say were happy that the officer was murdered.
    I was aware the shooter was caught.

    and LEO killing suspect/citizen is not a new thing, either.

    You've been told that in such a large country with many socio-economically challenged areas, the great majority of those gun deaths are criminals and gangbangers. And then an unfortunate subset of suicides. But personally, there's no way in heck that someone else's mental issues should be a reason to infringe on my gun rights.

    General gun deaths and accidents outside of those concentrated violent areas is very low.

    Oh honey, just look at the emotion you were throwin' out there in your posts I just figured 'drama queen' would get me banned so of course I didnt call you that.

    And good for you and your opinion.

    You guys seem to believe you are the only country with criminals and socio economic problems. On the contrary you are the only developed country with a major gun problem that greatly exacerbates them.
