Does a cop having a gun on the beat make you feel safer? Because it probably got this kid killed.
Not that you have a valid argument for even this case, but do you realize how foolish a statement it is that people shouldn't feel safer that cops have guns? Cops have taken far more lives in the defense of themselves or others than they have out of negligence. Furthermore, any common sense thought process on the issue would realize rather quickly that cops would be killed off in short manner if they did not have a gun. Bad people have guns and other deadly weapons that necessitates cops having them. It really is that simple.
