George Skelton's argument is illogical. The ex-cop Christopher Dorner was fired for making false reports, which doesn't necessarily indicate a predisposition toward violence that would require his gun-ownership rights to be revoked. Several years had passed since his firing before he allegedly went on a killing spree.
Several journalists have lied in print. I would expect Skelton to give equal accounting to them and have their guns confiscated.
Skelton writes, "We expect more from police, who have been trained at public expense to be expert killers."
Really? Is that what the police academy is for? Does the chief know?
