One comment in here made a lot of sense......or at least reflective sense. The lefty anti-gun radicals seem to be ok with the idea of arming just the police and military, but taking away eventually the right of citizens to have a comparable means of self defense.
I've often heard it said, if they werent cops, they'd be criminals.
The righties, on the other hand, don't seem to want to take away the rights of others, at least not in the area of the 2nd.......

go back and research the history of the second amendment and why it went in. please don't add any fuel to the fire with phrases like "lefty anti-gun radicals"... i consider myself a liberal progressive and i own guns... someone could just as easily label some people as "righty blood-lust radicals"... the name calling only clouds the issue with insults and that just delays a workable solution to this madness and i'm not spouting disarming the public, the solution could be purely sociological i.e. mental health support. background checks might prevent a purchase by a felon but they will do nothing for the "law abiding citizen" who snaps.

If it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun, who stops the good guy with a gun when he turns bad?

I think you might want to re-read this story. This was a POLICE OFFICER that did this.

If you take the guns away from the citizens and the POLICE then the only protection we will have is the military. Are you sure you want to control guns to the point that only BIG BROTHER is our only protection? That does not sound like what our founding fathers wanted.

Yeah this is a real good reason to keep the 2nd Amendment alive and well.

WOW, Now that's something I never thought I'd hear happening.

Don't Police Officers get some kind of routine mental evaluations?

If not they should. What they have to see every day will damage the strongest minded person.

Sadly being a police officer doesn't always mean you're the good guy.

evil is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days... sometimes i suppose it's justified,
my take however is it's the fallibility of imperfect humans which has less to do with true evil than it has with mental illness or simple lack of restraint, something that should have been taught to us as children... i realize that not everyone walking the street has had that input. the human condition is a work in progress and the final grade is still in question. stay safe. peace.

As we can see, all these tragedies have a common denominator : mental illness. Gun don't kill people, It's crazy Psychos with a weapon, any weapon: car, knives, baseball bats, guns, pitchfork, arrows, stones etc. etc. It makes no difference to them, if guns are taken away they will use anything else listed here. Lets address mental illness, unemployment, swift justice for criminals etc etc. Law enforcement is plagued with mental issues like the rest of the population, a great deal of them are war Vets who comeback with PTSS .

I agree about one focus needing to be on mental illness, especially people with homicidal tendencies. This does not, however, let us off the hook as far as the need for much more effective gun control is concerned. (There is, for example, also the issue of the alarming number of gun accidents that occur every year.) And, even as far as homicidal tendencies are concerned, guns remain far and away the method of choice, since they are also the easiest to use....

What mental illness?

Law officers are under a lot of pressure and some cannot handle it. I make no excuse for cops that murder people much less their own family, they say you treat police with respect well its hard to do when they do the same things as murders and rapist and kill people. They are human like the rest of us no better no worse.

Earlier this month Las Vegas Metro Police switched their public mapping system. The new system expressly prohibits the press from writing down the crime data where the old system did not. Why would any police agency move to a less open and transparent method of making crime data available to the public? While public crime data transparency may have had little impact on this unfortunate and horrible event, there may be an argument that a more open and sharing department has more operational effectiveness to detect a troubled officer by practicing and encouraging openness.

Perhaps they want to support private enterprise efforts??

i've been told, although you can often question the source, that municipalities will sometimes do things like this to pad their "stats" as far as the administration's need to appear an effective one... some administrations may have people "padding" their resumé...

Geez man, this guy obviously had some deep seated issues and decides to murder both his wife and son and then set the house ablazed before finally taking his own life. How sad and tragic.
