Actually, at Ruby Ridge, they were. It was insane, but that's what the orders were.

Well, they're not doing a very good job of it then, are they?

Guns incite violence, they don't deter or defer it. Also, drawing your weapon when the other person is unarmed or doesn't have an equal level of force is enough to land you in jail on criminal charges whether you shoot it or not. And yet we see cops routinely killing unarmed people.

There is no reason to pull a gun on an unarmed person. None.

I was always taught by my father--military, remember--that you NEVER draw your weapon unless you're going to use it. And when you shoot, you shoot to kill. Not to wound--to kill. If you're not prepared to do that, then you have no business having a gun to begin with. Once you pull that trigger, the damage you inflict is totally on you and you cannot take it back or change it.

Something most of the guns nuts on the board truly have never thought through. They act like killing another human being is just a walk in the park and they'd never think twice about it.

Riight...that's why there are so many officer caused deaths these days, and they DO get past the judges on a regular basis. If you can legally shoot an unarmed child in cold blood, you can do anything and get away with it, court or no court. That's why people are so upset.

Since when have you become an expert in law enforcement strategy? Oh, wait, let me guess. You teach that, too.

Needless to say, I don't agree. The only thing that's keeping these nuts alive is that fact that as of this moment no one wants them dead.
