Any time a law enforcement officer is killed for doing their job it is bad. But, did the killer own the gun legally? If so, the problem lies with allowing the unstable to purchase weapons. But, that also brings up the question--"If I am otherwise normal and healthy, both physically and mentally, but need some meds for depression or anxiety, should my rights be taken away?" That is the question. If you blow up at home and punch the wall and your spouse calls the police, should you have your second amendment rights taken away? If you suffer from mild depression and are medicated for it should you have your rights taken? If you see a psychologist for anxiety because you are overwhelmed, should you have your rights taken? It is a very slippery slope, one on which you may find yourself.
