Now try adding Sarah Palin and watch the polarization begin. I'm for her, so there!

Exactly. We want our police to come home safe from patrol, which is why they mostly travel in twos, are armed for self-defense, and are trained to call for backup in suspicious circumstances. If they look like, and begin to act like the Waffen SS, then we have a problem.

First of all, why not arm all citizens equally, then the bad guys have no advantage anywhere. Second, warrant and knock, because thugs don't have manners, but we pay our police to be better than that "protect and serve", you know? If the police are nervous, armored vests, and sufficient backup is all you need. If the homeowner shoots first in response to a knock, unleash the team, and the homeowner will either die or be hanged. Where amongst legitimate police duties do we need armored vehicles with battering rams and gas injection systems? I thought only Hitler and Saddam Hussein gassed their victims? Occupying armies tend to face resistance - why would you want to escalate the situation until the police look like an occupying army instead of your friends and neighbors?

Anything other than polite knock with a locally signed warrant should be assumed to be criminal thugs. Shoot to kill, because thugs do. My local police would not behave like that, and any group which bursts in without knocking are not the "protect and serve" local police that we agree to pay for.
Any reason Israel shouldn't simple destroy Gaza from their border as far back as the longest range of the terrorist's rockets? Since there's no such thing as a "Palestinian", why not put the pressure for accommodation squarely where it should have been in 1947 - on the surrounding Arab states. Remember, too, those Arabs who wish to live peacefully inside Israel as Israeli citizens are more prosperous, and have more individual rights than Arabs anywhere else in the Middle East. Hmmm?
Shot 'em down. Jail any survivors and use them as bargaining chips. Tell the Mexican government that the next incursion where ANY of their resources opens fire will be considered a declaration of war, after which any Mexicans approaching within 1 mile of the US border will be shot on site, heavier artillery to follow.

I thought even CNN had given up on this! Seriously, I hope they find it and solve the mystery.
The correct answer should be hell no, and followed by armed resistance. Federal laws of this nature are null and void in any case - we obey them as sheeple, not as citizens!
