Congressman Mike Honda wants to be sure people shot with rifles die

What kind of "encouragement" the cops would offer is left unclear, but judging from the fact that his "solutions" to violent crime all center on a) making certain that cops are better armed and armored than private citizens, b) that there are more cops, and c) that the police have access to records of private purchases of things he doesn't think private citizens should own; it seems unlikely that he would insist that this "encouragement" be particularly gentle.

One should probably not hold one's breath waiting for him to explain what to do when the mass shooter with a rifle is himself an "Only One." [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

Some states already have common sense laws to deal with armored criminals: increased penalties for wearing body armor while committing a crime. Such laws don't affect innocent people, or make criminals out of otherwise law-abiding citizens, since it's already illegal to commit the crime (e.g., armed robbery) in the first place.

But politicians like Mike Honda seem to be more interested in harassing honest citizens than in punishing or deterring criminals.

And, on the one hand, anti-gun activists make it sound like mass shooting sprees with military-type rifles happen every ten minutes in this country. On the other hand, they insist that civilians don't need body armor that can protect against rifle ammunition.
