Now the Arizona cops are in on the setups for assault rifles too!

Phoenix shooter found dead in his car

Yesterday there was a shooting in Phoenix; a man walked into an office building and shot several people, killing one. WITH A PISTOL.

Yesterday, he disappeared. WITH THE PISTOL IN HIS POSSESSION.

Today, his body was found. With a pistol shot to his head, apparently self inflicted. YET THERE IS AN (supposed) ASSAULT RIFLE FOUND IN HIS POSSESSION????

I’m sorry, I really can’t believe that story. Why the hell would he pack a an AR 15 in his car but shoot 5 or 6 people with a pistol??? That doesn’t even make sense.

Nope, not buying it. Just not buying it.

I agree. 100%. Many years ago I was home in a rural area with my kids, late at night. The only loaded weapon close at hand was our trusty .22 rifle. The would-be intruder was trying to break in the front door (which was never used) and I left the house out the back door with the rifle.  I went around the house to the corner where the intruder was attempting to break into the front door.   I told him to leave or I would shoot him. He did. By the time the sheriffs would have gotten to our home, even if I had called 911immediately, it would have been all over with for me and my children. Police are there to pick up the pieces and pursue justice AFTER the fact, not to protect us before it.

During the phone call, Donnie Herman can be heard trying to reassure his wife, before telling the dispatcher she was shooting intruder Paul Slater.

He can then be heard screaming at his wife to  ‘shoot him…shoot him again’.

Recordings obtained by The Atlanta  Journal-Constitution of two calls to 911, detailed the terrifying moments of the burglary – one from an anxious, but calm husband and the other from stunned neighbors.

Donnie tells his wife Melinda: ‘Just remember everything that I showed you, everything that I taught you,  alright?  If he opens that door, you shoot him, you understand?’

So very true. The saddest part is that this has been a change that has crossed that invisible line. And we can never go back. The loss of empathy by the people we elect to be our representatives, supported by all too many people who pulled the levers.

Violence has become our government’s calling card, starting at the top and trickling down, from President Obama’s “kill list,” which relies on drones to target insurgents, to the more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans by heavily armed, black-garbed commandos and the increasingly rapid militarization of local police forces across the country.

Did you know that groups of men who call themselves “the government” murdered over 90 million people during the 20th Century? Ban government, not guns. — jtl, 419

“We need to look more closely at a culture that all too often glorifies guns and violence.”—President Barack Obama

It didn’t take long for the tragedy of the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, which left 20 schoolchildren and six adults dead, to be co-opted by politicians and special interest groups alike, all eager to…
