He was a 23-year Army veteran. "I'm ahead of everybody else because, basically, I'm a soldier." Unfortunately he was wrong. You may think you are Rambo, but your weapon will not save you. It is more likely to harm you. And it creates risks for others in our society. Our country and our politicians are too weak to do what the British and the Australians did - taking high-powered fire-arms out of circulation. This is a cancer and an embarassment to our country. But the people who think everything we do in this country is better than everyone else or are historical battle re-enactors will cease to take the educated approach and try and improve our country on this front. Shameful, weak, and pathetic. Only perhaps when it hits closer to home will it alter the ill-informed sense of losing freedom - or maybe we'll go further the other direction and I will get to own my own private Predator Drone - you know for self-defense.

This has nothing to do with two wonderful people being assassinated. It is too early to determine what is happening in my neighborhood. I know this, two loving knd people were murdered. They were caught off guard as they relaxed in the comfort of their own home. Those who have a mindset to be EVIL will always find something to fill that need and be EVIL. We need laws and law enforcement, that is why it exists. Duh! No, even though we are in favor of gun ownership by law abiding citizens, most of us do not own guns.

If the drugs were legal, you'd just go down to the convenience/liquor store and buy some. You wouldn't have to deal with thugs and criminals just to smoke a joint. (Mind you: I don't smoke - or do drugs of any kind [not even alcohol]). rockychance: You have it backwards: The ILLEGALITY of minor drugs is why people are killing each other.

McLelland said he carried a gun everywhere he went and took extra care when answering the door at his home. "I'm ahead of everybody else because, basically, I'm a soldier," the 23-year Army veteran boasted in an interview less than two weeks ago." He did carry a gun with him, he did use extra care in his actions, he did get murdered. Guns don't necessarily stop people with guns. My condolences to the family. “Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland took no chances after one of his assistant prosecutors was assassinated two months ago.

They would not have been successful had they kicked in my front door, even with their auto weapons. They knew enough to kill someone by ambush and in their minds taught the Fourney cty DA's office a lesson. A high school dropout could do that but a college grad (or even an intelligent HS grad) would not do such a thing. Drug dealers, supremacists, and others would do it. The fight against such stupid people has been long and continues endlessly. Gun control does not work but is a good legal prosecution tool and should be used for that purpose only. Evil, corrupt GOVERNMENT kills millions of people in the past/present/future, but not when the governed are armed. We will find and punish these murderers and continue the never ending fight against stupidity! Not much can be said yet, except that the murderers were very stupid people.

Still shooting deaths is at a very high rate. This shows that guns will NOT protect you. Posted by: Pres | March 31, 2013, 1:21 am 1:21 am Pres////////let me tell you 2 things about this 1. You are an idiot. 2. Kick my door down and see if my gun will protect me. I would much rather have the chance then some liberal take my gun away.

This was a sloppy disorganized murder. A professional hit would have involved four shots, two for each person, at the most. My condolences to the children of this couple.
