4 police officers shot dead at Wash. coffeehouse
This is a tragedy. Why are people targeting the Military and our Police officers?
This is a perfect example of why I carry 90% of the time when I am not at work. In this situation a person with a CCW would have the advantage on the BG as he is targeting the police. Maybe not all of them would have died if one of us had been there. My prayers go out to the families of these fallen police officers.
Only about 5 minutes from my house... unbelieveable!
Pain and Rage...
...pain for the families and remaining officers, having been there a few times myself...rage that he got away...this is part of the reason I carry...I know two officers personally whose lives were saved by the willingness of an armed citizen to step up...
So sad - I'm very sorry for thier family's
This world of ours is full of crazy people.
All the more reason to CCW.

The attacks have started folks. Right here in the US just like they have been going on in Scotland, England/Great-Brittan and in Australia.
The PC attitude is going to get millions killed in this Country. And Obama is going to sit back and let it happen.
It's a darn shame. Our prayers go out to the families.
Freedom1911 I hope you're wrong - not looking forward to a terrorist war on the home front. Just looked at Fox News and it seems to be a normal everyday psychopath that they are looking for.
There were a number of senseless shootings out there this Holiday - Wisconsin, Kansas, and Florida.
Why do the people fastest to jump to conclusions always have to spout the tin hat conspiracy theories? Ever think that it could be they don't *have* enough details due to witness descriptions being horribly inaccurate? Or maybe they do, but don't want to tip the guy off before they can close in on him?

I agree with the OP that had there been a few armed civilians *maybe* the 4 cops might not have died, or *maybe* the shooter would have died with them. Although personally I think if a substantially larger percentage of our population was armed at all times this dirt bag might not have ever tried to gun down the officers to begin with.
...not this time...news reports yesterday said he was a black man...Fox this morning names him and tells his history...it'll make you even madder to find out WHO he is...
You have got to be kidding me. And they want to limit my access to guns. This is exactly what will happen to civilians if they take our guns away. This is a senseless act of violence that will continue to happen. Huckabee is somewhat responsible for this in my opinion. BG'S should not get releases when they have a violent past. This ticks me off so bad. No bail should have been allowed. Shame on that judge. I will carry a lot more now.

I spoke with a LEO today here in Houston. I brought up the topic by saying how sorry I am that he has lost some brethen to a horrific tragedy. We were talking about it and I told him that I carry most of the time and I think things might be a little different if someone there had been carrying as the LEO's were the target.
He went on about his thoughts that we should all be armed. He is glad that we here in Texas have the rights we do to carry. He told me what he would like to see in a CCW carrier if they are in a traffic stop. I will take that advice if I am in that position.
Anyway I just thought I would put a word out that some of our Law Enforcement people actually like that idea that we are armed. I had good conversation with this officer.
I know all the training in the world can't totally prepare you for real life but I would like to encourage everyone to use your rights as an American citizen and carry legaly. Not only carry but make sure you are trained and proficient with your choice of firearm. I train every month to stay sharp. I have used this situation and put myself in it and thought about how I would react. I think by doing this you prepare your mind for it and you won't think you will just react if put in the situation to do so. I will put myself in more situations as I train in the future and teach my brain to react. I hope I never have to draw my weapon on anyone but in the event that I do I will be ready to do so.
God rest the souls of the fallen Police Officers.
...a lot of cops think we don't care because we shy away from them in public...you did real good today...good for him and good for all of us CCWs...his opinion of us has to be higher because of your conversation and now he knows some of us support and would stand up for him...great report...
News just broke that the suspect was fatally shot last night by a lone patrol officer investigating a stolen car:
Looks like he tried to come up behind the officer and refused to stop. Good riddance.
Yeah I saw that this morning as well. Good thing that officer was aware of his surroundings or we might be reading about his death. Goodbye to that POS that should never been back on the streets. I am glad it was a police officer that put him down in hell. Please to all our Leo's use this situation to your advantage and be very careful out there.
