From CNN. "Holder: Figures 'underscore the very real dangers' officers face" The number of law enforcement officers shot to death in the line of duty rose more than 50% in 2014, the law enforcement group said in a report released in December. The misinformed would be shocked to read that! A whole 50% increase! OMG, let us ban all the guns! Clicking the report and actually reading it reveals the numbers of this increase: In 2013, a total of 5 Ambushes occurred In 2015, a total of 15 Ambushes occurred No death of a Peace Officer is warranted, and even 5 is 5 too many. That said, Eric Holder is being too overly dramatic and fear mongering with the quote above. Statistically, ROOFERS AND PILOTS have a higher chance of death on the job than a Police Officer. Perspective, people. There are so many cops out there who have never been shot at or have had to draw their own firearm; as a profession it is actually pretty safe. The timing of this report fits the ATF narrative of banning anything it wants. Watch as references to this report are made throughout the media as a reason to ban guns. And the real kicker? The majority of those ambushes occurred in the most unfriendly gun state in America: California. Who would have thunk it? I thought that laws restricting gun ownership --- as found in California --- would reduce violence!
