Going after the Pillars of our Government with Guns!

Public servants are no longer seemingly off limits as gun targets, you know, the guys we turn to when we’re in trouble? The separation we once held for these individuals has melted away, now that we have the power of the almighty gun. Unhappy with government…well, that’s why we have the Second Amendment isn't it? Wrong, check out the following explanation:

So now we have this, an unprovoked attack on our firefighters...
AP:  An ex-con set a car and a house ablaze in his lakeside neighborhood to lure firefighters, then opened fire on them, killing two, engaging in a shootout with police and committing suicide while several homes burned. Police say he lay in wait outdoors for the firefighters' arrival, then opened fire probably with a rifle and from atop an earthen berm The gunman, William Spengler, had served more than 17 years in prison for beating his 92-year-old grandmother to death with a hammer in 1980 at the house next to where Monday's attack happened, Spengler, 62, was paroled in 1998 and had led a quiet life since. Convicted felons are not allowed to possess weapons.

Police say seven homes were destroyed. William Spengler, 62, left behind a chilling typewritten note“I still have to get ready to see how much of the neighborhood I can burn down and do what I like doing best – killing people” … used a semi-automatic rifle, one of three weapons recovered from the shooting scene, to kill the firefighters … the semi-automatic as a .223 Bushmaster rifle, the same weapon used in the school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn said. "It's sad to see that that this is becoming more commonplace in communities across the nation." 
Or this attack on our local piece keepers, the police...
jsonline: A 30-year-old Wauwatosa police officer was shot and killed by multiple gunshots on duty early Monday, police Lt. Gerald Witkowski said … it is a homicide investigation and that there are no suspects.

Jennifer Lynn Sebena joined the department in January 2011 after completing the Milwaukee Area Technical College police academy and began as a solo patrol officer in July of this year. She completed probation with the department in November. The stunning chain of events began in the early morning hours. Police said that between 3 and 5 a.m. Wauwatosa dispatchers attempted to raise Sebena on her late shift patrol.
