Only Cops Should Have Guns? Yeah, Right

Only Cops Should Have Guns? Yeah, Right

You don't hear it so much these days, but it was a commonplace among anti-gunners a generation ago that only minions of the state were reliable enough to have guns. Their general superiority as human beings and training meant you didn't have to worry about them committing crimes.


Well, not so much. It appears that two Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents got into a dustup in a federal building in Long Beach, Calif. that led to one firing on the other. After the second agent suffered a several gunshot wounds, a third agent fired on the first, killing him on the spot.

This incident just demonstrates once again that police are people, too, with all the frailties endemic to the human condition. The notion they should possess a monopoly on deadly force is ridiculous, as this incident demonstrates.
