Road-rage shooting proves need for gun control!

October 23rd, 2007

Since the guy who did the shooting was a cop, cialis buy tadalafil I suggest we disarm all police officers immediately.

    I actually prefer driving like an outlaw. ;)

    Ok, I’ll play devil’s advocate. Here we have a person who is supposed to have gun discipline instilled in him and is supposed to have passed a psych evaluation (presuming that is the policy there) and he still gets stupid and kills someone.

    Now, let’s use the pro-gun’s favorite arguments for guns, namely self-defense, or defending someone else’s life. Self-defense in that case could have led to innocents being shot, as the guys in the first car were blotto. And if they hit and killed the cop, there’d be a good chance they’d go to jail for it, because the cop obviously wouldn’t be able to confirm he shot at them first.

    Second, defense of others-If I am facing some bad guy with a gun, that is enough for me to worry about. I don’t want some Clint Eastwood wannabe also taking potshots. Nor, based on some of the comments I’ve seen around the blogosphere or in daily life, would trust a lot of these people with a pair of sharp scissors, much less a firearm.

    Thank you for listening. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

    I’m impressed with your bravery!

    Bravery? For playing devil’s advocate? Or for not wanting to get caught in a crossfire?

  • 7. capper  |  October 23rd, 2007 at 9:03 pm

    Or for returning to the regularly scheduled programming?:)

    The last, I think. ;)
