The Feds don't need to see anyone's mental health records. The 2nd Amendment doesn't exclude folks the psychiatric establishment has deemed depressed, or ADD, or whatever. All they need to know is whether or not the buyer is a criminal. Period. And yes, that means things like this are going to happen. But we do what we can within the confines the Constitution places on us. Freedom by its very nature does not allow for absolute safety. That's just the simple way of the world. But it's the only state the human soul can tolerate long-term, and I'll take freedom over PERCEIVED safety 100 times out 0f 100.
I recently deleted everything relevant from my FB account. IF only that meant nobody had the info anymore...

You guys are getting down in the weeds with any discussion about good cops and bad cops. There's really no debate there, most are good and some are bad. It has always been that way, and always will. But in the end the cops are a tool. A means to an end. And it's that end that we need to be concerned about. Don't worry about the cops, worry about the laws and unilateral actions that are directing them. With every single armored vehicle a PD gets, the politicians are carying a bigger and bigger stick. The better to smack us with, my dear.

Agreed. I'd like to see the video on that claim. From what I've seen therer were plenty of items thrown, including molotov cocktails, and acts of robbery carried out. While I'm sure there were peaceful protests, I sincerely doubt any of them were gassed. There was plenty of viiolence out there being gassed tho.

This isn't about bad cops. It's about bad government. If we continue to give them the tools they need to enforce their abuses of power, we will eventually suffer the complete revocation of individual freedom. The founders knew this, and that's why they painstakingly put restrictions on the government's policing authority. Why don't you?
Exactly this. What you see in the image above this article is the equivalent of an epidemic tracker. Dems don't like what they've done to their own states, so they move to red states and promptly start voting for the exact same policies that killed their former states of residence. It's the definition os insanity (and stup[idity), only this is a contagious disease. The infection is spreading.
Heh. I bet that algorithm just picked up my post...
