This will surely be a shock to gun control advocates, but when a crazed killer targeted armed and trained people in an area where they could carry guns, nobody except the crazed killer was killed. I'm sure the point will be lost and they will turn up their efforts to disarm more potential victims. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/06/13/dallas-police-shooting/ "A crazed gunman armed with an automatic weapon and a shotgun fired on officers outside Dallas Police Headquarters early Saturday morning before being shot by a police sniper following an hours-long standoff. Authorities later confirmed the suspect was dead. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at a press conference that the gunman ranted in a 911 call after the attack about killing cops and came within seconds of doing so in the case of several officers in the line fire. “We barely survived the intent of this suspect,” Brown said He said it was extremely fortunate no officers were hurt. “Some officers say we were lucky, I believe we’re blessed that our officers survived this ordeal,” the chief told reporters. Investigators found a package containing pipe bombs near the headquarters building and the suspect told police he had C-4 explosives in his armored van, Brown said. The package exploded as an Explosive Ordinance Robot picked it up. “Lots of shrapnel was included in the pipe bombs that exploded-- screws, nails,” a police spokesman tweeted. Two pipe bombs were also found in the van after the suspect was shot. When police detonated those devices, the gunman’s van caught fire and ammunition rounds went off inside. Brown described a harrowing scene at police headquarters when the gunman pulled up around 12:30 a.m. and began firing, first with an assault rifle and then with a shotgun. Bullets struck police squad cars, the inside of the building’s lobby and a second floor office. Brown said one officer avoided getting shot because he had just left his desk to get a soda. “This suspect meant to kill officers and took time to discharge that weapon multiple times to accomplish (his) wanting to harm our officers,” Brown said."
