I don't know what in the hell is wrong with the city of Dallas, Texas & its obsession with shootings. Whether real such as last night's shooting of Dallas Police Department officers or that of the late XXXVth U.S. President John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy, Democratic-Massachusetts. Or even imagined ones such as from the tv show "DALLAS" of both Brother J. R. & Brother Bobby Ewing (I realize these two were fictional, but they showcased the idiocy of gun violence.) Hell, even in Edmonton here this morning where an armoured vehicle guard had to shoot & kill a suspect who was trying to rob their vehicle & put his & his partner's life in danger outside a bank.
Sure there are cases where police in the United States go nuts & get off with murders, such as the one where a one-hundred year old senior was shot dead by a cop & he got off at trial, that old man wasn't a threat. I don't make judgments on gun-control either way & I work security guard jobs but I will never get any form of gun license nor will I ever do any form of armed guarding shift. The best way is for certified law enforcement & military professionals & responsible citizens to have the guns. Plus, police are out of control in terms of killing black people to a degree, there is some racial prejudice, that isn't in dispute, sometimes they kill several citizens a day, many who have surrendered. But to be fair, you have to be in their situation, the officer has to make a judgment call & deem what the threat level is. So it seems appropriate that we ask Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee for her opinion on gun control since it was her state that was bloodied last night so badly! To a point the Black Lives Matter group goes overboard to because frankly, they aren't the only oppressed race on the planet Earth.
"Mass shootings have become to common in our country."
