    I have a cousin whose husband is a police officer, he’s a good guy that’s on board with much stricter gun control. He’s seen some things and had people
    close to him hurt, as a result some trouble has popped up here and there and the department got him a therapist. I think he’s still on leave now, actually.
    A friend of mine married a Burnsville cop just this past December. One of the two cops killed was at their wedding, and the picture my friend posted of that cop was him resting his arms on the shoulders of a woman nursing a young baby. The relationship between the two wasn’t explicitly stated, but I assume that’s his wife/GF and his baby. That poor family.

    Ages 27, 27 and 40. What a waste

    I’ve been asking for years why cops don’t fight for gun control more. I had one friend who used to be a cop (quit over a decade ago) and main reason they gave for quitting was conceal and carry

    Why haven't we sold this as a law enforcement issue? Our brave boys are in danger because criminals have legal access to military grade weapons.
    Cops are good when they oppress people, otherwise they obstruct the (wh)right people from breaking the law- when they are then bad.

    Any time something like this is asked I just assume "all of the above" and move on.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the general public having fewer guns, but you do you, Cowboy.

    ETA: I’m now picturing Woody Allen in a 10-gallon hat.

    Two officers and a paramedic were killed in Burnsville, MN, last night. The shooter then took their own life before the event ended. The shooter had seven hostages. For those in the Twin Cities, it was roughly located at the NW corner of I-35E and MN-77.

    Burnsville is turning nasty, per an officer I know. The city doesn’t have the resources to combat the gun problem, and people from outside the city have been making use of that knowledge. They’ve had a number of shootings in the last year.
