    Gee, what's the difference between a school and a police station?

    The early Friday morning shooting apparently occurred inside the police station, possibly near a stairwell in the rear of the building. Police said a suspect was under arrest in connection with a domestic violence-related incident when a struggle with officers ensued at around 5:30 a.m. The suspect "obtained a firearm" during the struggle, police sources said. Officers then returned fire, killing the unidentified suspect.

    No kidding?  You mean that all those cops were not unarmed and thus subject to being targets when the suspect decided he wanted to grab someone's gun and start shooting?

    Funny how that works; one officer shot but in stable condition, and two more with superficial injuries.  The shooter, for his part, is dead.

    Now think about how many cops would have been shot and killed had they not been armed.

    No, being a good guy with a gun is no guarantee when a bad guy with a gun shows up and starts shooting.  However, when a bad guy shows up and starts shooting if the good guys have guns it certainly beats the alternative, which is being a good guy but unarmed, and thus being rendered a victim with no means of defending yourself -- or anyone else.




    Great comparison to recent events.

    Now that is some crazy a$$ed pretzel logic.

    Gee, I wonder what would happen to a criminal who has been detained already and who happens to get his hands on a gun in a police station filled with armed police officers. 

     

    Oh, wait I don't wonder what would happen because even a goddamned moron can figure it out.

    Maybe now that a (union!) cop is killed, instead of just a lowly (union!) teacher, the gun nuts in the NRA might actually give a damm.

    Eh...probably not.

    Gee, what could go wrong with lots of guns in a school full of disgruntled teenagers?  The solution to gun violence is obviously more guns...

    The solution to drunk driving is more bars, that way the drunks will have a shorter drive home.

    In response to 12-Angry-Men's comment:

    If any cop gets shot in a police station then it pretty much disproves the wingnut argument that schools should become armed encampments. Ya can't get much more armed than a police station.

    In this case the guy was unarmed upon entering the station and was able to get a weapon and begin shooting.

    That clearly shows that;

    1) If there were no weapons in the building the guy wouldn't have access to a gun and not been able to shoot anyone.

    2) Even trained police officers can lose control of their weapons, thus providing a nut with the ability to do more damage than if he wasn't armed.



    That's logical. You forget where we are.

    I think the highly trained police with their procedures and protocols within their own station could have stopped this attack had they been wearing TWO sidearms instead of the liberal single sidearm. Maybe some ninja throwing stars and a batarang could've helped. Afterall, more guns make it safer for police in their own bunker! Right?

    Arm up kiddies.

    If the cops weren't armed to begin with, then the guy arrested for domestic violence never gets a hold of a weapon and no one gets shot.

    How many of us wish we had a gun to take out that psycho in Sandy Hook as he was taking shots and all those children?

     



    I bet more of us wish the psycho never had the with to begin with.

    If the cops are not armed, then not only are they minutes away when seconds count, but when they get there, they are useless.

    Nice logi the moonbats got there.

    Re:

    What exactly are republicans willing to do in the wake of this horrible shooting? 

    They don't appear to favor any common sense gun control, like banning assualt weapons or high capacity clips, or closing gun show loopholes. 

    Mental health care is expensive, so Reagan famously closed the facilities in California in the 70s and nationally in the early 80s leaving ill-equipped families and communities to deal with the problem.  That was 30 years ago.  Would today's republicans favor the funding of mental institutions and other social services?  Don't make me laugh.

    I think we know what republicans are willing to do:  NOTHING.   Periodic shooting of 1st graders is just something we'll have to endure.

    The mass shooting that didn't happen...

    http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Two-wounded-in-theater-shooting-4122668.php#ixzz2GVLjMNR4

    Why? Because an off-duty sheriff officer with a firearm stopped it.
