Sure having laws against weapon for citizens might make it more difficult for small-timer criminals to get them. But it`s doubtful. What it would do, however, is ensure that whatever government body is in place had absolute power and would be impossible to overthrow should the need arise.
Gun control does in fact work quite well . . . at keeping the people from being able to defend themselves--not just from criminals--from the Government. Do you remember why we left England in the first place? And how did we win our independence? That`s right: Militia!
The right to bear arms is in the constitution to ensure we have the ability, if it becomes necessary, to fight back and overthrow any leadership that may come need such. And yes, we do think it`s a real possibility. It wouldn`t be the first time.
One of the first things Hitler did at the start of the Holocaust was to ban all guns and weapons for Jew
Get the sand out of your vajayjay....its only a video and im sure the person who pissed you off isn`t worth it anyway
Sure, criminals will find a way to get guns and other weapons, but once they are illegal, you can crack down on those ways. Do you not realise that more guns in the country whether held by law abiding citizens or not is a bad thing. People kill when they are scared. In a situation where they would not kill if they had a gun. And the police don`t need to lower themselves to the level of a criminal. Just take the motherdrater to the ground. There was absolutely NO need to tazor him!
"If there were stricter laws in the US on the sale of weapons, then in turn, the police would not need to carry such weapons and that wouldn`t be an issue."
How would this help? Criminals Break Laws. It`s why they`re Criminals. Criminals also fight the Police. Law Abiding Citizens Don`t Fight the Police. Making More Obscure Laws for Law Abiding Citizens to try to follow, makes it harder for a person to Obey the Law. We don`t Need any more Goddamn Laws, we need Justice. In this case here, the Naked Freak Running down the road NOT obeying the Law Died. JUSTICE was actually Served."
Oh dear.... I mean,.... is that actually the way that Americans think (sweeping statement I know, but it seems to be the way). Do you not understand the logic behind this at all! If there are laws against weapons it is HARDER to get them. Not impossible, but harder, therefor there are less weapons around. People don`t just go out and buy a gun for protection because they
If you call death an appropriate punishment for being naked in public, yes. Most people however find that a bit over the top. I wonder why...

The US is fighting fire with fire.
The UK is not perfect, we have a lot of knife crime, but i much prefer the British take on law enforcement than the US
Again, you don`t have a lot of time to analyze the situation and decide which is the best course of action. Your primary objective is survival. Secondary is protecting any [innocent] bystanders. Lastly, you want to try to not hurt the perp any more than you have to.
(No I`m not a cop, but I did go through the academy)
Having said all that: Judging by recent news, it definitely looks like the taser isn`t as "non-lethal" as we once thought.
Because, contrary to what Hollywood would have you believe, they are NOT all Chuck Norris. Most people who attack an officer are either suffering from dementia, or on some sort of drugs. In either case, they don`t want to comply with verbal commands, and they likely feel little-to-no pain. You need to disable them.
Imagine: You`re a cop. You have an arsenal of weapons on your bat-utility-belt. An unarmed man comes charging at you (or another [innocent] person), obviously wanting to fight. Do you forgo all your gadgets and wrestle him down with your bare hands? You have 1.5 seconds to decide. (I`m being generous)
If you answered "Yes.", then you`ve given him about a 50% chance to kill you with one of your own weapons. You always "one-up" the aggressor. If he`s unarmed, you go to pepper spray, taser, or baton (so-called "Non-lethal" methods of control). If your attacker has a weapon, you go t
Almost every Taser related death is linked to the use of drugs that effect the above systems of the body. When the electrical current passes through the body it has a small chance of upsetting the rhythm of the heart, which is already screwed up due to the drugs. This causing death.
