Suspect probably had unpaid parking tickets or suspended license or something equally minor. Suspect: “Hmm, I’m going to attempt murdering a couple LEO’s cause I don’t want to get bagged for something minor.” Too often the case. I don’t get it.

I wonder whether more rigorous federal gun control law would have prevented this tragedy.

Ol Hamburger Helper up there never disappoints always straight to more gun control.. how bout more people control how about getting theses dumbasses off our streets and locked up like they should instead of letting them out or better yet never charging them because of the public hug a thug outcry. History has proven if a POS criminal wants a gun they will always be access one control it all you want still not going to stop it. Only thing more control will do is stop good law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves from these animals.
