    Another "Good Guy" with a Gun

    A real good guy, it seems...at least until he went bad.

    Newark cop shoots and kills ex-wife, wounds her boyfriend, authorities say - nj.com

    A Newark police officer killed his ex-wife and wounded her boyfriend in shooting late Sunday night in Morris County before being arrested at his parents’ home on Monday morning, authorities said.
    Man have gun. Man get mad. Man kill. Pretty standard stuff.

    It's high-time we get rid of some guns.

    Same guy with a knife? same outcome? Maybe it isn't the gun.

    We do not have 15,000 knife homicides per year in the US. Do you know why?

    Because it's easier to kill with a gun.

    It is easier, doesn't change the outcome. If this guy didn't have a gun(since he is a cop he would have had one anyway no matter what laws you wanted to pass) I doubt the outcome would have been any different. The problem isn't the gun. It is the person. People should really start there when looking for a fix for this problem.

    Less than a quarter the rate of death by alcohol.

    Sorry, this is the 'gun control' forum.

    You're only supposed to post gushing praise for guns and gun owners.

    You need to move this post somewhere else.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Posting a question or an idea on types of gun control is usually welcomed and then debated, just saying "we should get rid of guns" isn't really a good starting point. The problem here is you have a police officer who would have a gun no matter what laws there are.

    Unless you want to disarm law enforcement as well?

    Hmm... are we now into disarming police officers to stem "gun violence"? What, exactly, is your "gun control" policy proposal that would have stopped this person from having "access to" a gun?

    No.

    What’s welcomed usually are posts like ‘hey- like this gun I’ve got in my pants?’

    And then the forum posters all talk about how they love the gun in his pants and talk about the guns in their pants, as well as past encounters with guns in their pants in the past and jealously of other men’s guns in their pants.

    And if someone says ‘hey- we should really have less guns in peoples pants’ everyone shouts ‘freedom!’, and mentions how pants are legally allowed by the constitution to have guns in them.

    Umm I think you are on the wrong forum, you seem to equate a gun to something else.
