There’s nothing in that list of weapons other than a bunch of hunting guns. Definitely nothing I would pick for self-defense weapons. And, I noticed that the .357 magnum pistol that the perps allegedly shot the cops with is not in the list. So, does this mean that it doesn’t exist and the cops were just shooting so wildly that they shot each other?
So, a couple of potheads get barnstormed and killed by cops. I’m very pro-cop but this is why you need the 2nd amendment to be very unrestricted. Cops are paid to get it right. I dislike potheads, but if two potheads lost their lives because of some over-zealous cops, than these cops need to die!
Houston's Police Chief is very anti-2A. Part of his spin on this is that "it wouldn't have happened if the occupants hadn't had guns". According to Acevedo, we should all be disarmed and should bend over and take our no-knock warrants without resistance.
Theres a lot of problems with our law enforcement. Groups like BLM were never intended to help the situation. They were created to cause division and make things worse for everyone. They wanted to drive people to one side or another without looking at the evidence in each case. Theres been plenty of killings by officers that were unjustifiable. The fact that weve seen officers who should have never been charged to begin with, along with officers going free when they should have been charged and imprisoned, just show how bad the problem still is. Better psychological exams and training is needed.
I dont like these kinds of raids without significant evidence showing its needed. A lot of innocent people have had there houses raided. A lot of people who arent major drug dealers, or whatever, are expecting a raid. Its hard to wake up to the sounds of a violent break-in and understand whats happening as your taking actions to defend yourself by going for a gun. Its not easy to process whats happening when your getting raided and your trying to comprehend whats happening as you go for your protection. Its a dangerous situation that should be used against certain criminals with sufficient evidence. The cop that shot Philando Castile had no business having that job to begin with. The people who easily panic are dangerous, and they should have been ruled out early, along with the weird personalities who have outright murdered someone for enjoyment. I cant remember the name, but the guy was obviously looking for an excuse to kill a man as he cried and begged for his life.
I'm not particularly "pro cop" any more; the prevalence of this sort of criminal malfeasance in office is a big part of the reason. The cops are their own worst enemies.
