I agree, I think the whole issue of having to pay for more officers is too political to happen which is sad because it is really the only thing that could lessen the impact of a madman on the loose. By the time some nutjob has committed to his killing spree it is too late for gun laws to make any type of impact and vigilante justice is not the type of climate I want to raise my kids in.
