    Seeing as how the scumbags had already violated numerous laws being merely in possession of such a rifle, maybe it's time for Kommiefornia's politicians to be forced into rehab and allow the citizenry to deal with the problems.

    What do you bet it was a couple of wanna-be gang bangers going through initiation?

    I saw that news report in this AM's news. The shots into the patrol unit were not random, the shooter knew what he was doing...cluster of shots on the passenger side & a short burst to the driver's side. Last I heard, the injured officer still may lose a hand over this :cuss:
    This entire story left me upset & with several questions :scrutiny: :cuss:

    Does anybody know if it was a real AK47 or a semi-auto?


    (yes, I realize it says "assault rifle" and "spray" but it's LA; they don't know the difference)

    Good question.

    On a side note, the movie "Heat" inspired the bank robbery spree in LA about ten years ago. One of the perps was using an AK converted to full auto with parts he bought legally. You could buy the full auto parts but could not assemble them.

    An AK is an AK whether not it's full-auto. It's probably a SKS as it gets confused for an AK alot.

    Nope. Don't believe it. Can't be possible. This story must be a fake. Assault weapons were banned in **********. The ********** government made the streets safer for children and police officers a long time ago by banning EBR's.

    Not a chance. This will be heralded as evidence that they are not strict enough. Yea he had already broken many laws just to be in possession of that weapon but they won't see it that way. They will see it as evidence that they need to take more guns from the people who didn't shoot the officer.

    Chavez in Venezuela just got a contract from the Russians to build an AK-47 factory in Venezuela so I expect to see those things start showing up on our streets shortly after the factory starts production.

    Hey maybe Bloomberg will sue him?!

    Nope. They will ommit that. Watch, they will mention how "using this vial weapon, the crimal legally bought the high powered armor piecing ammunition that is widely available for all kinds of these over powered machine guns."

    If those knuckleheads are willing to disregard homicide laws, they're surely willing to disregard gun control laws.

    It makes a person wonder if the politicians ever realize that their stupid laws are just not working. Of course, if they did realize it then they would have to admit they are wrong. I doubt I will see the day when that happens.

    the poor disadvantaged youth

    has been discriminated against all his life and was forced into a life of
    of poverty and desperation, those police officers were trying to oppress him.
    Perhaps if we talk to him and resonate with love and hugs he will bond with society and become a loving nurturer.....

    Forgive me if I have my doubts. Honestly, thank God they don't have those things in Iraq or the bastards might have to learn how to aim one.

    In the meanwhile, my wishes are with both officers. Losing a hand is hard, as is dealing with shooting someone for the first time.

    This is why I would never be

    a LEO. This kind of random violence is much more likely to be perpetrated on LEOs than just us regular working stiffs.

    Hats off to LEO's that can live their life with an incident like this possible for them everyday.

    I would actually like to know if any of these guys had a felony record that would have prevented them from owning ANY firearms in the first place. Cali sure likes to make a point of the particular weapon used when they should be looking at how these guys end up getting such a weapon to begin with.

    What the PR of ********** needs is stricter prison sentencing guidelines that prevent such low lifes from getting out. Instead they have bleading heart liberals that cry "victim of envirnment" and "rehabilitation" then seek to pass stricter gun contol bans when their poor unfortunate "victims of society" commit more crimes. Here in Florida with our 10-20-Life gun crime sentencing these guys would be looking at life sentences.

    The gun control laws apparently aren't working. And, I don't mean to side with California's laws. I'd love to buy an AK. But what would YOU do if you wanted to prevent crimes involved with assault weapons? I would love to hear your actual opinions.

    Once again, I mean not to side with these laws but to ask if not these laws, then what?

    Incidents like these aggravate me because they make honest gun enthusiasts, such as myself, miss out on all the fun you boys in TX and around the country are having :banghead:

    Ummm......lock them up and throw away the key? :evil:

    Back in the day if you stole a horse you got strung up. You steal a car now an you get 30 days. You killed someone, and once upon a time you might not have made it to trial before a lynch mob came to take you away, and even if made trial, you still got strung up if found guilty. Now you turn the victim into the excuse and cop a plea.

    The answer is simple. The world has too many people was it is and these have no reason to be in it.

    For minor offenses, we got lots of jobs that need filling picking strawberries in California. They can sit around in prison when they hit 70 years of age or there abouts.

    The question is flawed, since it presupposes that crimes with assault weapons is a major issue that needs to be dealt with. Empirical and anecdotal evidence shows that assault weapons are used in very few crimes. Assault weapons then pose no greater threat to the public than a Ruger MKII. Regulating them and banning them does little to prevent the criminal use of them.

    The question is then how do we prevent the use of any gun illegally and also reduce violence? Unfortunately there are no easy answers to that. I have not looked at the data recently, but the last data set I saw listed poverty as an indicator for violent crime. I am not sure if that has been disputed or not, but assuming that this connection has not been discredited, one thing to do would be to fight poverty. Trying point to assault weapons as a cause for violence is a red herring. Assault weapons provide a convenient symbol to attack politically. They look menacing and are well known in popular culture, and thereby provide a salient symbol for politicians. I have always been of the opinion that politicians use gun control as a means of not dealing with more deep seeded societal problems, that are more difficult to deal with and more expensive.
