As many of you may have read or heard, 4 policemen were gunned down in a Parkland, WA coffee house this morning. This location was in close proximity to McChord AFB, which just goes to show you that evil can strike anyone, anytime, anywhere. Prayers to those who have lost so much in this tragedy. I fear the antigunners will use this against us, as they always will in situations such as this.
I'm reading the news here in Italy as well.
Just like in Italy, this murderer was free to roam around, in spite of a super - violent criminal record. Those deaths should simply have never occurred. How can that be? Why are such violent criminals left free, again and again?
To GFA: your insight and perspective continue to impress me. You are such an asset to this forum. We Americans rarely get the chance to interact with Europeans and , in your case, Italians. Hope you stick around and add your class and flair to the forum. Invitation standing.
This is so absurb. A violent criminal is allows to walk the streets, armed and I'm hitting a roadblock on getting my permit because I missed traffic court in 1993.
If someone was there with a CCW, this would be an entirely different thread.
