Washington Post wonders if gun rights advances are responsible for police deaths

No effort was made to explain how "more firearms on the streets and in the wrong hands" could lead to more law enforcement officers' deaths, without causing violent crime overall to rise (and indeed it has fallen). The editorial certainly didn't try to explain which specific aspects of the "ascendancy" of gun owners' rights are allowing more firearms to end up "in the wrong hands." More states with concealed carry? That doesn't affect who can legally own a gun at all. More "castle doctrine" laws, whereby law-abiding citizens are not required to retreat before utilizing lethal force in self-defense? Again--that changes nothing about who can legally own a gun.

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?
