Gun control failed Officer Flamion.
From the local newspaper:
A Ballwin Police Department officer ambushed on Friday remains in stable, but critical condition — and is facing what a departmental Facebook post describes as "life changing injuries."
Mike Flamion, a nine-year veteran officer, has been in critical condition since Saturday. Authorities say he was ambushed by 31-year-old ex-con Antonio Taylor, who rushed the officer from behind and shot him in the neck.
"He remains in stable but critical condition, however it is coming to light that his life, and that of his family, will forever be changed by his injuries. He will require long-term medical care and we are confident that the community will stand by him on his long and difficult journey," the Facebook post read.Gun control laws, including the landmark 1968 federal law, which requires background checks before any federally licensed seller makes a sale (even at gun shows) failed to stop this thug from getting a weapon.
More laws won't help.
I won't get into the race angle because frankly radical communists like Obama's political mentor, Bill Ayers, want to start a race war. White officer, black assailant. Yes, I get it. But that's not the problem. Allowing career criminals to walk among us unrehabilitated is the problem. We must return to respecting the law, and the men and women who enforce it.
Obama's call for gun control is knee-jerk and reactionary -- almost childish.
We need crime control.
