“With a terrorist on the loose and literally thousands of police and even military officials searching to no avail, suddenly the idea of having an AR-15 handy to keep a dangerous terrorist from conducting his grand finale in *your* house with *your* loved ones starts to make a hell of a lot of sense, don’t it?”

[Despite the complete trampling of civil liberties, was it a LEO who found the fugitive? Was it in an area where citizens could easily and readily obtain arms for their own defense?
Tell me, why is it that people grabbed cameras instead of shooting the assailants who were threatening their neighborhood. Oh calling the police worked great all right, turned the neighborhood into a total war zone and endangered the lives of additional people. Instead of fighting back to defend themselves and in so doing aiding law enforcement that was risking their lives to protect them, they grabbed a camera.
They grabbed a camera instead of firing one round and taking down the last assailant. Instead of firing from an elevated position with a clear line of fire to the aggressors, they grabbed a camera. They grabbed a camera and instead gave the government an excuse to abuse their neighbors and friends at gun point. They grabbed a camera instead of taking the risk that goes with freedom and liberty. They grabbed a camera and signed their name as a supporting participant in the death of American Liberty. -B]
