    Gee, it's almost like there exists a bad role model fueling all this rage.

    Seriously? There's a massive shoot out, at least 6 officers injured, and you don't see a problem? :rolleyes:

    That's very close to a generic threat to attack cops with deadly force if they legally have legal justification for removing your guns. If I were in law enforcement, I'd want to know if that was sufficient justification for a warrant.

    And that attitude is exactly why I'm 100% in favor of gun control - to make sure people with your attitude don't have guns.

    The war on drugs has failed, time to treat narcotic use as a health issue rather than as a criminal matter.

    They were called there because of narcotics activity.

    6 people have been shot. I'd say that qualifies :rolleyes:

    How many victims would you like to shift the goal posts to before considering a shooting "mass"? At least one more than whatever the incident being discussed is, I guess.

    ?? How do you equate that with what I said, the police responded to narcotics activity and were shot.

    6 cops who were raiding a drug dealers house doesn't fall into the realm of a crazed mass shooter with an agenda.

    And so are you arguing that as long as the wounds caused aren't "life threatening," it should be okay for anybody to go around shooting anybody else?

    So you are advising police not to respond to narcotics activity, so as not to get shot?

    Anything to avoid acknowledging the glaring obvious problem, I guess.

    It does when you figure that on average, you will be shot before you so much as injure one or two cops, let alone six.
