arma virumque cano (et alia)
But the shooter was a retired police officer, and, according to the news article, he had a license to carry a handgun. It wasn't specified whether that license was as a citizen of Massachusetts or through LEOSA as a retired officer. The point remains that this man went through all the checks that your side wants, and he still did something wrong.The point here is that some people will do bad things. End of lesson.
Greg Camp:28 years as a cop? I'd guess his "jacket" might contain a few indicators that would tip a reasonably competent mental health care professional*, but since the Blue Wall operates to cover for even dead bad cops, we will likely never know. Oh, I'm sorry, were you thinking that I was going to defend the cops? You're a meathead. Your comment:" The point remains that this man went through all the checks that your side wants, and he still did something wrong."is like saying that since houses burn down, anyway; people get in automobile accidents, anyway; small children gobble up anything that will fit in their mouths, anyway, means that we should do away with fire departments, public safety departments, consumer protection laws and the various forms of insurance that hold people harmless, financially, when these things do occur.Keep on doin' what you're doin' there, Greg. It's just more frist for the millstone that you've hung around your own neck.* I know, I know, you think mental health care professionals are charlatans and you don't believe what they say. I wonder, did you have a problem with one, yourself?
Greg, My point was that lawful gun owners do commit crimes far more often than you like to admit.You said, "The point remains that this man went through all the checks that your side wants"Well, I think you know he hadn't gone through all the checks that I want. I've mentioned a time or two, that in my opinion the cops are as inadequately trained and screened as civilian gun owners, or almost so.
