    But, this didn't happen in Tacoma, or Seattle.

    You see the problem about the "legality and stealth of handguns" part. It wouldn't have been possible if the people(civilians....or is the right word slave?) had the same ability as cops to carry concealed guns on them. That way the bad people wouldn't have gotten away or have had the possibility to carry out such a crime.
    Okay - I'll tell you the same way I told Coon County. Wait until all the damn facts are out. People killing cops for ****ty reasons or for absolutely no reason is not something that is even remotely new in America.

    Parkland is a suburb of Tacoma, located in unincorporated Pierce County. Jurisdiction for this crime belongs to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department.

    The address of the coffee shop where they were killed is a Tacoma address:

    Forza Coffee Company
    11401 Steele Street South
    Tacoma, Washington 98499

    My guess is that it's the medias way of playing up the headline, not that it needs it. In light of the recent tragedy at Ft. Hood I think anything violent and newsworthy that happens near a military post will draw some mention of the post in the headline.

    I dunno, dude! Maybe you should email them and ask them why they titled the article that way. Ultimately, who give a ****?

    Cheap way to get headlines if that's the case.

    You have no basis from which to make such an assumption, none. How is it "more likely" exactly.

    You see the problem about the "legality and stealth of handguns" part. It wouldn't have been possible if the people(civilians....or is the right word slave?) had the same ability as cops to carry concealed guns on them. That way the bad people wouldn't have gotten away or have had the possibility to carry out such a crime.
    First of all Washington has concealed carry statutes on the books. The "slaves" can absolutely carry concealed weapons. All they have to do is be 21 and meet the requirements. And there is no guarantee that anyone would have been able to prevent this man from killing these officers or getting away. One of the problems with many CCW permit holders is that they don't actually carry their weapons with them all the time, they leave them in the car or at home because they can't get used to actually wearing them or adjusting their clothing options to facilitate concealed carry.

    I think every law abiding citizen who lives in a CCW state should at least consider getting the permit and carrying.
