Dearest JESUS, my heart goes out to the Officer's Family--i feel so sad for the them. MY GOD---GUNS, GUNS, GUNS--there was a time way back when that the only ones that had guns, were police and military men and women--every where you look, it is another person that has a gun--PEOPLE ARE SHOT AT!!! WHEN WILL THAT STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHEN!!!!!!!!!!!!ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!PEOPLE ARE DYING, NEEDLESSLY!!!! DID THIS OFFICER REALLY NEED TO DIE!!!! DID HE???????????? MY heart goes out to his family. So sad!! Thankyou dearest Officer, for caring and loving your work, your fellow men and women and K9 Officers and your community. GOD loves you!! so very sad.

The guns are not to be blamed for the senseless killing of our LEOs - there are a lot of good men and women who carry. This murdering of police officers starts in the mind of weak, angry, and confused people. Praying for the officer's family.

Also, since the beginning of our country, practically every house had at least a firearm in the house/cabin/tent. Sometimes the woman of the house had to grab the musket off the wall, because the husband was out plowing in the back forty, to defend herself and the children against Indians, bears, wolves, etc... Even a 10-year old boy had to go hunting because his father had died and he needed to bring home some meat.
