Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- An ICE agent went on a workplace shooting rampage in a Long Beach CA Federal Office Building last night after reportedly getting into a heated exchange with his supervisor.
The gunman was stopped only when another person with a gun, a fellow agent, drew his own weapon and shot and killed the assailant. The supervisor is currently hospitalized and is expected to survive.
Every time time there is a work place shooting, or any shooting where someone gets angry and goes on a rampage, gun control groups, their followers and their enablers in the media and various legislative bodies engage in a sick blood dancing competition to see who can be the first to issue a press release or a soundbite excoriating the presence of firearms and the “ease with which they make these horrific acts so common”.
“Firearms don’t save lives” they say. “If the attacker didn’t have a gun, he wouldn’t have been able to do what he did” they exclaim. “Only trained Law Enforcement and the Military should or need to have firearms “they caterwaul.” We must close the XYZ Loophole” they insist.
They’re right. We need to close the “Law Enforcement Loophole!”
I did a basic Google search and here are just a few examples of “trained professionals,” killing and maiming. Law Enforcement Officers from various agencies around the country, who by the way have access to fully automatic weapons and are always exempted from any proposed gun control legislation such as magazine capacity restrictions, or semi automatic rifles that gun banners have intentionally misrepresented as “assault weapons” for over twenty years.

And there’s plenty more cases out there. In fact, a quick Google search reveals similar cases from all over the world of cops going on shooting rampages, in countries that have stricter gun laws then the US, laws we are incessantly told we simply must adopt so everyone will be safer, according to the gun control sycophants.
Its long past time to close the “Law Enforcement Loophole” for the so called “Only Ones”
But wait, here’s what the Assistant Director of the FBI had to say about how the rampage shooter was stopped and prevented from hurting anyone more seriously.
Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles office said “Another agent, working nearby, intervened and fired his weapon to prevent additional rounds being fired at the victim”
Replace the word agent, with the word citizen and the same exact thing happens can happen at the next shooting rampage, that is, a lawfully armed person stopping a crime in progress. In the case of citizens people in the United States use guns to defend themselves against criminals an estimated 2,500,000 times more than 6,500 people a day, or once every 13 seconds. (GunFacts, page 19)
But according to the Brady Campaign, The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and others, only cops and the military are stable enough and professionally trained enough to use a firearm to deal with an attacker.
Yeah right – Close the Law Enforcement Loophole
