    Perhaps you might want to read the law before getting all warm and fuzzy about shooting a cop.

    http://www.in.gov/legislative/bills/2012/ES/ES0001.2.html

    There was a lengthy discussion in Cop Talk earlier this year: Indiana house approves bill authorizing the shooting of Police Officers.

    And there is a current discussion here: Indiana legalizes shooting police officers?

    I don't really understand why police would get all butt hurt over this law.

    As long as they are there legally, and have a warrant, and don't violate a property owners's/citizen's rights, there isn't an issue.

    From how LEO powers have been trending the last 10 years anyway, I'm glad to see some powers go the other direction.

    A police state is not good.

    Because officers entering houses illegally and firing upon innocent people is such a widespread problem. :upeyes: Give me a break. No-knock warrants are only allowed under strict circumstances. Although there have been very RARE incidents where the wrong house was entered, LEOs serving these type warrants are getting very dangerous folks off the streets.

    Don't read much into this bill. It will never affect 99.9% of the U.S. population. I wish a few in favor of this could go on a few search warrants to get the perspective of the LEOs. Matter of fact, put the stats together of those LEOs killed executing a search warrant versus innocent citizens killed as a result of a LEOs illegally entering their house. It's not even a comparison.

    I do. The next team that comes down to your drug den with a warrant, you will open fire and try to get out of a First Degree Murder charge by stating you thought they were making an unlawful entry.

    Same old B.S. as the tree huggers and anti-gunners.

    The bill is a complete waste of taxpayer money. I guarantee if an actual REAL study was done about erroneous warrant entries, it would be around the .00000000000001 percentile.

    So then, the police should get over it, stop whining and go about their business of protecting us poor defenseless little sheep from the bad guys.

    Good deal, I feel safer already.

    "Save the drug dealer!"

    "Save the serial killer!"

    "Save the child abductor!"

    Does that sound like your mantra? Given your reaction, it does.

    No one is taking your firearms away unless you are an illegal alien or a convicted felon. Are you either one of those?

    This controversy in meaningless to my situation. The new law has not removed my right to bore a policeman to death.

    Hey, I know what is VITAL for survival!
