propasaurus: Three people were shot, but only one was injured?
Fissile: Wayne LaPierre has the solution to this problem: Place armed teachers inside every police station.
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: I'll bet it was one day before one of the cop's retirement, too. Those guys should know better than to show up on their last day.
Oysterman: That does it. We need to give police officers guns. Then everyone would be too scared to shoot them.
phaseolus: Maybe the shooter was committing suicide-by-cop?
kombat_unit: Your probably pissed the shooter didn't gun down some kids before his suicide by cop. Oh well, maybe you'll get your wish tomorrow.
dittybopper: Actually, they did subby:Three New Jersey police officers were reportedly wounded during a shooting inside the Gloucester Township Police station.MyFoxPhilly.com reports that the suspected shooter has been shot and killed.Initial report is that 3 are wounded, and the shooter was shot and killed.Seems to me that having a bunch of guns around prevented that from being much worse.
dittybopper: Seems to me that having a bunch of guns around prevented that from being much worse.
Nem Wan: The shooter took a cop's gun. Nobody would be able to get a gun from a teacher.
KIA: Wow - so these are the guys you think have the ability to protect every citizen from criminals? These are the government agents you think can bring about peace while every other law abiding citizen is disarmed?
BizarreMan: If the police station was a weapons free zone this would not have happened.
Click Click D'oh: No dead good guys, one dead bad guy... seems like it's working as intended.
DROxINxTHExWIND: KIA: Wow - so these are the guys you think have the ability to protect every citizen from criminals? These are the government agents you think can bring about peace while every other law abiding citizen is disarmed?Naw, we'd rather depend on the untrained law abiding citizen. Like the one who got killed here. Lets see:Untrained civilians: 1 deadTrained Police: One shot. Two with boo boos./check the stats
Schroedinger's Glory Hole: This is why one officer needs to be designated as the office popper. Every half hour he squeezes off a few rounds into the ceiling below a bunch of TempurPedic mattresses. Honestly, do you guys think that criminals are going to shoot up a building that has shots being fired several times a day? I think not.
dittybopper: Initial report is that 3 are wounded, and the shooter was shot and killed.Seems to me that having a bunch of guns around prevented that from being much worse.
natazha: I thought all you had to do was show the perp that you had a gun and they would run away? That worked 2 million times last year!Or not. 2 million is five times the number of violent crimes that occurred in the USA last year. If that was what the CC folks stopped, then there must have been 4-6 million violent crimes that were not reported.
