A maryland police officer was killed yesterday with an assualt rifle. Ugly situation.
Police officer in maryland killed with assualt rifle
Looks like there is a need to ban all shotguns too!
Morpheus, now I am confused.
A shotgun is called an assault rifle? I didn't know that...
No one seems to know what an “assualt” rifle is. I take it mean a rifle used in an assualt, which this clearly was. This off duty officer lost his life after a woman who was a victim of domestic abuse ran to him for help.
Of course the choice of firearm dosent matter, really, he was legally not able to posses a firearm because of the protective order. This case wont bother fink because it wasn't his boggy man ar-15, but it was a failure of the law just the same.
Stepped in to to his duty, even though he was off duty.

Okay. I must be just a nitpicker, then
I have always understood a rifle and a shotgun to be distinctly different. That's all. Carry on...
(I also understand a shotgun to be an "assault weapon" - very effective in small spaces and a short range)
We are on the same page crow.
It is indeed sad, outta here. Flags at half staff in md today.
