Just got an update on the DFW scanner page there were shots fired at officers in Ellis county, just south of Ennis (for those not from the area this is a short drive from Waxahachie where these firearms were stolen from)...
No other word yet, just the update of shots fired at officers and no officers hurt.

Say they banned guns and destroyed every gun in America, even the criminals weapons (yes I know it's hyperthetical and impossible but go with the flow) so there would be no-one in America with a gun.
Now the ordinary man in the street would see no reason to have a gun so he would just go along happy.
But, the criminal would spend a few dollars of his drug money, nip over the border into Mexico and the cartels will happily sell him any amount of weapons he wants.
What happens then when the criminal has the upper hand? The ordinary man in the street can't defend himself or his family.
