stricter gun laws wouldn't have kept it out of his hands.
Illegal for parole to own a weapon
illegal in california to own an assault weapon such as AK47

so how would making it so that he had to break more laws have changed things?

Illegal to have guns in England (of course since they passed that law the gun violence in the country has skyrocketed)

All stricter gun laws will do is disarm honest citizens, it has been proven repeatedly world wide that stricter gun laws do not hinder criminals of which this guy was.

What "honest citizen" needs an assult rifle?

Assault rifles are only good for killing humans. You don't hunt squirrel or deer with an AK-47.

I'm fine with killing other humans in self defense.  That's why I support handguns.  But honestly, if you require an assult rifle for protection, you need to check your lifestyle.  The average upstanding citizen doesn't put themselves in a situation where they need a frickin machine gun for protection.  It's insane to think that anyone other than trained military professionals should be allowed to brandish such weapons.

that is because guys like ufo have yet to chime in...

some screaming bleeding heart lib will enter this thread at some point and say that the poor guy had his rights squashed or had a cop call him a name once, therefore giving him the right to kill cops like a cheap coward.

it is guys like this one that cause cops to over-react at times...  unless you have ever been on the streets with these thugs, behind a badge, you can't even begin to understand...

I see loose cannon did his best to draw attention from the real issue, but that is what is to be expected by idiots like him...

This is true, and the type of work that cops have to do forces us as a society to trust them. Our society would fold if we didnt give cops a great amount of protection  and trust and faith to uphold the law. They have to deal with so much crap that we have to give them a great deal of trust, and theres no way to prevent the occasional cop gone bad buut it doesnt mean tthe whole force is corrupt and that there should be protests in favor of cop killers.


That being said TUBRO will never admit its true, but a lot of cops join the force for the same reasons punk butt kids join gangs. They get beat up and picked on their whole life and then once they have power in numbers they start acting like tough guys. Its the same coward mentality. TURBO will put some kind of spin on it and pretend there arent a ton of **CENSORED** bag cops (not necessarily corrupt, but D-bags who abuse their power or fail to use discretion in obvious situations)
