Mass Killers: Gun Control is Not the Answer
After a mass murder incident like Isla Vista, the media loves to run a lot of stories that imply such tragedies would surely be a thing of the past if we could just outlaw all the guns. Those same reporters rarely consider how much damage this killer could have done in a crowded classroom with a blade.
Introducing the Shots Fired Podcast

Police Links: From Pranks to Attacks
April contained plenty of fools this year, it seems. As expected this time of year, at least one prank on the first of the month became much more serious than probably intended. Unfortunately, the biggest continuing story of the month was the Boston Marathon bombing. Thankfully, law enforcement was on top of it. Cops don't suffer fools gladly.
Police Links: Spring Surprises
March is the month that ushers in the Spring season. It's also known for being unpredictable. It's no wonder then that this March has brought with it all manner of surprising stories, including a police dog that fired a gun and a suspect delivered to police by none other than Batman.
Police Links: Exploding Oven Bullets
February is a short month, but there was no shortage of offenders and weird happenings during this time. For one, a woman was injured by an exploding bullet caused by a Glock magazine being kept in an oven.
Police Links: Letters of Love and Crime
Every January, people hope for new beginnings and do their best to turn over a new leaf – if only for a short while. Maybe the thief who returned stolen items 15 years later was inspired by the spirit of New Year's resolutions. Too bad more crooks weren't.
Video: SHOT Show 2013 Highlights
The 2013 edition of the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas provided plenty of innovative tactical gear for officers. POLICE Magazine's video crew visited Daniel Defense, Glock, KDH Defense Systems, Point Blank Body Armor, and SIG Sauer.

December encompasses a large part of the holiday season, so it's sad when a tragedy like the Newtown, Conn., school shooting mars this time of year's glad tidings. That's why it's so nice to hear a sweet story about two Port Authority officers who helped safely deliver a baby in New York's Holland Tunnel.
