    Oh you know the whole 'assult weapons are bullies' meme. I never thought you bought into all that. I do believe that offier's rifle was the real-deal, a machiengun, not the civilianised look-alike which is not a machiengun.

    So now the next time there's an assult-weapon ban proposed people will recall the immage of this cop comitting agrivated assult on the reporter and be more inclined to support the bill. Thats the kind of thing we gun owners are scencitive about.

    And what can happen, given enough time and opportunity, eventually is likely to happen.

    It's the way life works (Or fails to work.).

    I don't care about that. Not having to even attempt to sight a weapon is point blank.

    Oh you know the whole 'assult weapons are bullies' meme. I never thought you bought into all that.
    And I am not worrying about assault weapons versus assault rifles... although you seem unwilling to be rational about it so please go away thinking whatever you like. I love guns and the only people more stupid than those that have to differentiate between types of guns are the ones complaining/whining/bitching that an assault weapon versus an assault rifle actually matters when it comes to a perp walking into a building with unarmed people and executing them.

    For sure he at least needs a serious attitude adjustment.

    The aditude and the words are fine, its the pointing of the rifle which creates a problem. Someone mentioned earlier that military units trained in riot control are taught to project agression through voice and bodylanguage. That's true, but the weapon is never raised exept to fire.

    Raising his weapon is the only thing this officer did wrong, and it should land him in prison.

    You said you don't care about your own link, and now you say you don't care about the words you use. You seem kind of reckless.

    I didn't see where this cop walked into a building and fired on protesters. Link?

    Frankly, they got what they were looking for.

    I do agree that the police officer's response was out of line. However, that is exactly why he was removed from the situation by the other officers on the scene, and has since been suspended pending investigation.

    If I were to put money on it, I'd bet that the cop in question probably got hit by an object thrown by some belligerent jackass in the crowd, and that's why he flipped out.
    If I were one of the Guard units responding to the riot, and someone tried to throw a heavy object at me, I would shoot that person. That's exactly what the military trains us to do. I would not, however, rais my rifle unless it was to shoot.

    My link said where you don't have to adjust for elevation. You seem like you are out to distort what another says and then insinuate that they are ignorant or worse, lying.

    I didn't see where this cop walked into a building and fired on protesters. Link?
    Are you drunk because I was clearly talking about something else. In fact, I thought you would agree with it. Either way... trying to be clear and honest with you is a stupid waste of time.

    Some time behind bars has helped a lot of people to adjust their attitude.

    Not to mention Jerry completely misses the fact that the police are not military and that they are dealing with unarmed civilians in 99.9% of these cases, if not more.
