Is it any wonder President Obama and the majority of US citizens want assault weapons and large capacity magazines banned. Let's turn things around now, support this initiative.

CM- Perhaps you should read the comments from actual officers who are very aware of the dangers of firearms in CRIMINALS hands. Take a moment and read the comments from officers. The law enforcement community knows the problem isn't the guns, it is the criminal who employs them. Fix the mental health system and enforce current laws and there won't be a problem. Enough of the liberal agenda.

One hell of an experience and happy to see the officer lived through it all. I haven't seen any unbiased statistics that the majority of citizens want hi cap magazines banned, except for Obama and Biden. Was this character a US citizen? He deserved what he got and the driver shoud become a Texas lifer.

I agree with with Capt. David and officer Scott, enforce the laws already on tje books and make stiffer penalties for the law breakers and more help for the mentally ill. That will take care of the problem. Cop for 33 years.

Cm, that guy could have used a 5 shot capacity rifle, No mag even, and accomplished what he did. Its not the capacity of the magazine its the user of it that is the problem.

Pistol rounds go thru windows just as easy. So a 10rd 9, 40, 45 can do the same thing to.....

CM-you are an absolute idiot! People kill people! NOT GUNS! Glad my brother in blue survived. Good job men.

CM must be one of those that will follow Obama blindly, just as people did Hitler, and look what he did to them.
Gun control has already Failed, just like the "gun free zones" have failed.
We need to REGISTER All Violent Criminals and stop plea barganson all violent crimes. We already register Sex Offenders and put that info on state I.D and D/L, lets put the screws t the Violent Criminals.
We also need TERM LIMITS for the Senate & Congress, as they orget who they work for, when thy stay in office for life.
I bet that driver didn't even get life for that, and that IS the main problem.

CM kool ad drinker wake up. I have been a Police officer over 20 years and my wife and children are armed because I cannot protect them and response time is 7 min for my department, and most are longer. Sit in a chair and watch your front door for 7 min. and imagine an intruder kicking it in and what you can do unarmed to stop it? Nothing if you are unarmed. They will enter stick their illegal weapon to your head which they din not turn in and decide weather to shoot you in your kool aid drinking head. Mean while I or one of my brothers or sisters will just be receiving the radio call of your 911 call. You are not telling them what they want fast enough so they put their gun to your childs head. you tell them what they want they then shoot you in the head leave your family destroyed. All because your Lord and savior obama banned the bad old guns that the criminals by the way did not turn in you moronic jackass! Also just because the government media and obama said the majority want it does not make it true!

I guess Obama should not try to pass gun laws that may save a Police Officer's life one day. Everyone in this country should not have or be able to buy an assault rifle. Dohner got his guns legally and he killed several Police Officer's (maybe he should have had a mental health evaluation before he was able to buy an assault rifle).

I really don't understand the fascination with assault rifles, either from the anti-gun or the pro-gun side of the fence. An assault rifle isn't any more deadly than any other kind of gun, in particular I'd classify it as less dangerous than just about any other kind of gun. Something like an AK-47 is less concealable than a handgun, and has less stopping power than a shotgun at close range, or a high caliber rifle at high range, and is in general about on par with a handgun at most ranges in between the two. Accuracy is slightly better than a handgun at medium range, but significantly worse than a high caliber rifle at long range.

I honestly think at least on the anti-gun side of things it's sheer ignorance talking, as a lot of people seem to think that "assault rifles" are fully automatic weapons and they don't understand that it's illegal (for the most part) for those outside the military to own fully automatic weapons. People also don't seem to understand that the difference between a 10 round magazine and a 50 round magazine isn't really that big a deal, it's just a question of if they carry 10 magazines or 2, either way it takes the same amount of space (same number of bullets, the magazine adds little bulk).
