It seems that more officers have been shot this year than I can ever remember. This is left over from the Obama reign of terror.

I've told my son already, if I go off my rocker late in life, to go ahead and take all the guns.

Its a endless war on cops folks. Back each other up no one else will.

Head on a swivel. First one on the x ring wins the gun battle.

It's good to have weapons during these times. Thank God for 2A. Not a guarantee, but a good defense system when you cross paths with one of these animals. It seems they're breeding more and more these days. Stay armed and vigilant!
