I think to stop this happening again, Feds should have their guns confiscated and replaced with small teddy bears.

I don't envy the government, when us little people try and do stupid things, they're very happy about instituting draconian laws to keep us controlled, but they can't do anything about it when their own employees do the same, except maybe tighten their psych evaluation procedures up a bit.

Yer killin me smalls!
Actually I was thinking Holder could just pin the whole Gunwalker/fast and furious on the shooter.
Ok case closed we got the bad guy!
It would not be the first time the world has got the "trust me, the bad guy is dead" answer.

Really though, these are the guys who get a psych eval to get the job....
Back when there was no eval this never happened, and officers were loved by the people on their beat.

Some of the Federal Agencies are undergoing restructuring -
The Air Marshals just had a nasty public spat over the way they ran operations.
Border Patrol
TnA.. err TSA

Clearly, taking away all the guns from civilians is not enough.

We need to also take away all the cops guns.

Then we will all be safe.

I highly doubt that is the case. It takes a very mentally disturbed person to resort to this sort of action merely because they were let go. Nearly everyone has experienced being fired at least once, and we all know it's not the end of the world. These people have to undergo all sorts of mental examinations to prove their stability and sanity before they are allowed to be employed in an area like this. There is much more going on here then meets the eye, this guy REALLY didn't like something his superior was trying to do or make him do... and I don't think we'll ever figure out exactly what happened.

I think we should understand the environment of such a shooting before launching opinions. It is unfortunate, the information is limited, but in all likelihood, a man went postal and was brought down. This could happen to anyone including a police.
