Yesterday, the headlines were buzzing about a former police officer who has now gone Adam Lanza in the LA area. The main difference is that this cop is not trying to cover his motives, but has published a twenty-page manifesto promising violence and “asymmetrical warfare” on all his enemies.
“Police are waging an intensive manhunt across Southern California for a former Los Angeles cop wanted in connection with a double murder and suspected of going on a revenge shooting spree. Overnight shootings in Riverside County that left one officer dead and two wounded have been linked to the former Los Angeles officer, Christopher Dorner, who was named as a suspect in the slaying of a young couple here Sunday. Across Southern California, digital traffic signs carried alerts urging motorists to report any sight of Dorner, believed to be driving a Nissan Titan pickup truck and considered armed and dangerous.”
So here is a man who, despite some kind of vetting process to serve on the police force, has gone “postal.” He has already murdered a couple because the woman was on the panel that recommended his termination. A cop has died in a shootout with him. Others have been wounded. He is promising to kill more.
So where is the anti-second amendment media? Shouldn’t they all be screaming about how American needs gun control and all police, or at least ex-police, need to be disarmed? Why isn’t Piers Morgan asking “Why does anyone need that much firepower.”
Well, as far as I can tell, the gun grabbers are remaining silent. They know that, in order to grab guns, gun grabbers need to be armed. And like all self-respecting people, no police officer is going to work willingly while being told he can’t be trusted. Nothing Dorner does will make it acceptable to treat all other cops as if they are obligated to prove that they are better than Dorner.
