Condolences to the courageous firefightters.
But doesn't anyone see a pattern here?
1. Random indiscriminate gunshot killings is rising.
2. HEAVY MEDIA focus on guns attributed news, rather than the more non-gun violence.
What's going on?
I hope it is only something innocent, and not something that had been manipulated and played up by the anti-gun lobbists to tear up the sacred Constitution that alone had made USA a great nation still standing for 200+ years.
How UNCONSCIONABLE can the anti-gun lobby get???!!!! First innocent children, now firefighters???

That's what kids need when some nutters with guns invade their school - a shootout! Yeah, get trigger-happy dirty harry and his mates in to be heroes...absolute stupidity.

I read part of your link. It sounds to me like they were serving a no knock warrant and things went horribly wrong. That is why I have always been against such tactics. The police department acted in an absolutely disgusting manner.
The simple fact is that the Marine acted as he should have with an unknown group of intruders entering his home. The horrible part is that the police department overreacted and then tried to cover it up. This wasn't a gun problem. The gun owner did everything right. That is evidenced by the fact that he didn't even flip off the safety after he realized they were police officers. What you have here is a seemingly clear cut case of police brutality and murder. That incident should lead to reevaluating the tactics we allow cops to use. However, Americans aren't going to stand up and fight for that. Instead people will blame the home owner for trying to protect his family.
