Read this first:

Altough alcohol was probably a factor in this incident, I would not trust many of my colleagues with guns in the cockpit!

I don´t think guns in the cockpit are a good idea. Are we Cowboys or what. A gun in the cockpit is a potential hazard regardless of who has it!

This is why NO civilians should be allowed to have guns. He fired at police officers, he deserved what he got, drunk or not.

Jesus....the first post is from an ignorant person who blames the weapon, not the person behind it.

This is just another case of somebody getting stupid and the police protecting themselves. Don't blame the object.

That is pure ignorance.

I cannot say he deserves what he got, but I have to agree with you on that, that no civilians should have guns.

No one deserves death. It is a human beeing.

L-188 correct: You should not blame the weapon but the person behind it.

FLY 8 you can't have it both ways...

If you want to ban guns you are blaming the weapon.

You can have it both ways. Why not? There are so many idiots but they carry guns! So I think guns schould not be allowed!

So you are saying that I am an irresponsible person because I own several firearms?

Sorry but that is a load of bunk and insulting to me.

No READ my post! Have I ever said that EVERYBODY who owns a gun is an idiot? No I´m not. If everybody would be responsible like you and me, it would be ok to carry guns. But I ask you: For what do we need hose guns?

Regardless who has a gun it is a hazard.

I really don't think we hose guns, shooting hoses really don't do much. Maybe a potentail tripping hazard but besides that they are pretty much innafective.  Smile
