Wonder if the third officer was friendly fire. Wonder if stricter federal gun control laws would have prevented this tragedy.

You shoot a cop, they shouldn’t be given another breath of air! Do that enough and maybe it would stop.

Stricter how? In other words, no. Look at Chicago, NYC, Washington D.C., L.A., Detroit. Do ANY of their laws stop anything? Nope. https://www.pasadenastarnews.com/2018/03/02/pasadena-police-lt-vasken-gourdikian-arrested-suspecting-of-selling-guns-without-a-license-lying-in-statements/ Then stuff like this happens. Tell me, what stops corruption in the Police?
