1. It just never stops

we got to make it stop.

We are spiraling out control.

2. I think it will help dems win. Then they'll do an assault rifle ban. Don't know why

police are not against the NRA.

3. Because a lot of them are violent, angry people with white supremacist sympathies.

10. No true Scotsman, eh?

For as many bad apples as there are, I'm unimpressed with the supposedly "good" ones.

18. There seems to be a culture among police officers to keep their mouths shut

about wrongdoing among them. Even good police officers seem to clamp up. I believe the majority of police officers are decent people that are trying to do their job, it is just the bad and angry ones have the good ones and us by the throats.

21. Tonight the officers in charge came out forcefully against these guns on the street and we need to

do something about this quickly.

22. The smart ones know that high powered weapons in the hands of anyone endanger them.

Gun control won't prevent people from getting the weapons, but it will insure that the weapons get taken away from them. Everyday people that like guns think they can stand against an assault weapon with a sidearm, if 6 trained police officers are taken out and two others are trapped (and I assume armed with pistols), why would an everyday Joe or Jane think they can stand up to a maniac with high powered weapons?

4. Probably because a lot of them are gun owners and members.

I'm sure a lot of them are against what the NRA has turned into, but peer pressure can be very powerful.

5. The dude shot at them through the floor/ceiling.

Do you need an automatic weapon to do that?

14. No

What TV gets wrong is what they show stops billets. If itís a rifle it goes through floors and walls easily. Some weapons will go through concrete. Also, a standard car doesnít have many parts that stop bullets.

A big reason why a lot of people use a shotgun for home defense is that bird shot will not easily penetrate a wall. These assault rifles cut right through walls, use one for home defense and you risk killing your family or neighbor.

16. No. A handgun will punch through several walls and keep going.

A rifle has even more velocity. Even a shotgun with buckshot will go right through and be deadly.

11. I pointed out yesterday that 3 days after a Trump rally in PA we had the Dayton shooter

and made the prediction the next shooting would be in the same town as the next rally - He was in PA yesterday.

13. This was a drug operation. Obviously automatic gunfire is dangerous

for police fighting drugs.

19. He was on the other end of PA

Pittsburgh and Philly may as well be in separate states for all we have to do with each other.

20. The police chief and other officials just spoke the press. Central was we need to get these guns

and magazines off of the streets. They were pissed and disgusted. Calling out the NRA and 'others'.
