SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID: D.C. Councilman Advocates Disarming Police

Resource: http://www.wjla.com/articles/2014/10/d-c-councilmember-david-grosso-says-officers-shouldn-t-have-guns--107937.html
While police in the U.K. are routinely carrying firearms to combat the epidemic of violence in their "gun free" country, one Washington, D.C. Councilman is advocating complete disarmament inside the city - including police officers.

After attending a hearing and listening to citizens who said they had been subjected to aggressive police tactics, Councilman David Grasso ignored the advice of his staff and went full retard. Grasso said,

"I think we ought to get rid of guns in the city and that police shouldn't have guns."




The hearing was held by Democratic Councilmember Tommy Wells in part because of high-profile incidents including the shooting of an unarmed teenager by police in Ferguson, Missouri.

I'd really like to see how many officers in one of America's most violent cities would be willing to patrol unarmed.
