And they specifically exempted tele-work employees. I'm surprised they didn't limit it to the downtown employees.

The fact is this company didn't sell body armor to the shooter. As the article clearly states, the vest that was purchased from the company is not bulletproof.

Maybe they need to look into whether or not all of these useless committees are providing a good value.

If I get killed, I won't care who shoots me, but the point is that it's extremely unlikely that it would have been a CCW holder. It's not reasonable to expect that having a permit from the government would magically make everone perfect and eliminate murder, but a statistical reduction of 99% is pretty good, and I would take it any day.

Tonto, do you happen to have a good online source for Madison's orignal draft? The law that was passed by all of the representatives is the important part, but I would find it very interesting to read his original ideas.

Tonto, you're right, the language regarding "people" on freedom of speech isn't exactly the same, although it is widely understood to apply to the people. I should have looked up the text again and verified it. The language on 4th amendment language on unreasonable search and seizure is a better example, as it exactly matches. Regardless, it appears that I misunderstood your earlier post, as your later post seems to indicate that you do support every person (probably excluding, as the NRA does, felons and insane people) having any kind of gun they want.

Tonto, do you mean the real second amendment where the "right of the people" to keep and bear arms is the same as the rights of the "people" in the first, fourth, fifth, and other amendments, but the "people" in this case means the government rather than the individual citizens? I guess you believe that the first amendment guarantess the right of free speech to the government as well, since the language is exactly the same...

Sure they count Hkchas, but (per the FBI Universal Crime Reports, fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/tables/10tbl01.xls) there were 63740 murders in the years 2009 - 2010, compared to the 435 "people killed by concealed carry killers" since May 2007, per your VPC link, which probably includes self defense shootings. This means that out of 63740 murders, 0.0068% of them were committed by CCW holders. Based on the statistics, I would prefer to have a lot more CCW holders around than non-CCW holders.

The officer that hit the kid should be run out of town. The fact that the suspect allegedly pointed a gun at them previously doesn't justify striking him while he was handcuffed. There is no excuse for striking someone while they are subdued.
