LA Times blames rouge ex-cop on lack of gun control

(sorry if this is a dupe in WC; can't check it yet)

LA Times "journalist" George Skelton is convinced that if we pass enough laws, we can make evil go away.

Ya, after all, protecting and serving is so 1980's.

But the officers that shot up a Toyota Tacoma(while looking for a Nissan Titan) are okay.....

What about post office employees fired from their jobs?

What about senators who were voted out of office?

Sure lets make a bill that if a cop misses work without calling for a week can never own a weapon.....

Christopher Jordan Dorner is an example of a 'law-abiding' gun owner who turns violent.
Uh, what?!

From what I saw/read this guy lost his job for "making false statements". Now as a cop I assume he made these either to other cops or in court. If Joe citizen had done either they would at the very least be not law-abiding at the most in jail.

He wanted to bring out his cheekbones for the TV.

Agreed. And if we take the guy's manifesto at face value, he's been a ticking time bomb for almost his entire life, prone to spontaneous assault and battery. "Law abiding" does not compute.
