Guess how he was killed?

A man with a gun shot him.


Legalizing guns and handing them out to everyone won't help in cases like this or in cases period, it'll only add to the problem

This type of emotional argument is common amoung gun control advocates. The fact is, gun control laws have never been shown to decrease gun violence. All of the "studies" cited by gun control advocates (of which there are only a handful) are laughably flawed, such as the Kellerman study (google it).

Without a link between gun control and gun violence, I don't understand the motives of those who want gun control. It's not getting security for freedom, its giving up freedom, and not getting any security in return.

This is the kind of subversive, emotional tripe gun control advocates often use to pull on the heart-strings of soccer moms and ignorant college students in order to further their factually devoid stance on said issue.

Guns kill! People die! Death! Aren't you against death?

Utterly preposterous.

Do you sincerely think that gun-control would have saved this officer's life? Because if you do then I can see why you would be on the Hillary Clinton bandwagon.

Gun-control laws are established for the sole purpose of disarming criminals, but the funny thing about criminals is they don't follow the law. Whereas the otherwise law-abiding citizen is subject to random searches and seizures, and when he fails to register his/her weapon has it confiscated.

All gun control laws do is disarm law-abiding citizens while rapists, murderers, and burgulars roam the streets packing heat looking for their next unarmed victim.

The only reason why Billary Clinton and company don't care about protecting the right to bear arms is because they have twenty highly-trained Secret Service agents strapped with glocks and body armour protecting their asses twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. Give me round the clock protection from the Secret Service and a garuntee that my government will never become tyrannical and then I'll give up my right to bear arms.

A man with a car hit him.

Legalizing cars and handing them out to everyone only adds to the problem.
