So much for the argument that you never see mass shootings in police stations and gun shows....

3 wounded is not exactly a mass shooting.

At least the cops were immediately on the scene for a change.

Note to attempted mass shooters. Don’t try to shoot people that have guns.

and none of the cops died. The only one who is dead is the shooter who started the entire incident. Pretty good outcome given the circumstances. The fact anyone would take on the police inside their own station will be overlooked by the media and the emphasis will only be that a shooting occurred with the hope of making the same point the poster above makes about “so much for mass shootings not taking place inside police stations, etc”,,,no discussion of mental faculties will be had.

To the contrary - if this had been a gun free zone - like god forbid a school - this would have been a whole lot worse.

The shooter was stopped with a bullet or 30.

It might have been a mass shooting if it had occurred in the UK. Speedcuffs and Extendable “ASP” Batons are no match for a man with a gun.

Oh and I notice in the article that the gunman didn’t walk in shooting,,he was already in the station on some domestic violence issue and he obtained the gun through a struggle with the cops,,so,,,should we no longer arms the cops inside a police station?

A “mass shooting” is by definition when you shoot more than one person. How would you define it? 6? 11?

Shot with one of their own weapons apparently. Spur of the moment thing. I say that all police officers have their guns made safe by installing gun locks on them to prevent this in future.

the suspected shooter has been shot and killed.

He was hoping to say "I'll be back", but never got the chance.

Right. I’d like to know what is the ‘mass’ number. As many as you can before being stopped?

Which is why most police stations have lockers to keep guns and prisoners in custody separate.

After they killed 20 kids and the patsy they blamed it on, they didn't get the results they wanted in the polls. 75% of Americans still want to be able to own handguns.

So, now, another false flag operation, intended to push the gun control envelope further?

There’s really not enough information to make any statement like that. For all we know, this was an escape attempt, and not a mass shooting attempt.

That argument isn’t going to fly in this instance, because the shooter got his gun off one of the cops.

4 cops shot in a Detroit police station a year ago (see post 19).

1 point to be made. The Detroit shooting took place in the unsecured lobby of the police station. Secure areas where there are likely to be prisoners means officers are likely unarmed. I don’t know if this is the case in the NJ shooting but it seems to be pretty standard policy.

The suspect, while under arrest, “obtained a firearm” near a stairwell....

Hmmmmmm.... I bet there are no cameras in that area.

How does someone under arrest”obtain” a gun from the cops?

Actually, they were shooting at a dog wandering just outside the door. But, they missed and shot the guy that was shooting at them.

3 injured and the shooter dead.

If it had been a gun free zone the death toll would be much higher.

This story enforces the argument that guns stop crazy law beakers intent on killing much faster than a “gun free zone”

MyFoxPhilly.com reports that the suspected shooter has been shot and killed.

I should bloody well hope so. If not some serious questions about the police and their training are in order.

Totally changes the story! He “obtained” a firearm during the struggle... failure to secure a weapon while marching a suspect into the police station.

How are they going to spin the .223 “assault weapon” into this story? Seems like they’ve let it get too far already.
Last time, it went from being in the trunk, to being the murder weapon in just a couple hours.

4 or 5 years ago, we had a multiple killing at our local police station in a small rural county seat, pop. 2500, --2 policemen and the clerk were gunned down with a policeman's gun, snatched by the perp.

A local young black male, just out of HS and waiting to be called to the military, was arrested for speeding and suspected driving a stolen vehice. He evidently saw his future going up in flames and grabbed a policeman's gun in the station, shot and killed two veteran cops and the young clerk. Just now getting to trial.

BTW one of the policemen killed was a black man, the other two white.

The perp ran but was followed and picked up. He is angry and full of hate for whitey, according to many of his statements.

Point to Feinstein and other gun grabbers--weapon used was a handgun belonging to the cops. The problem was a mentally deranged youth.

It looks like some cops forgot safety procedures. If you are going to interrogate a suspect, either you restrain the subject or you make sure there are no arms in the interrogation room. Some people are very bad at taking responsibility for their actions and particularly don’t like someone telling them that they will be held responsible.

My first thought was that a cop didn’t pat down the perp to see if he had a weapon.

The procedure at our county Sheriff’s dept is pretty secure.

The officer arrives with a prisoner in the car and has to ask for a garage door to be opened. (they call it an intake bay) The officer then gets out of his car and secures his weapon in a gun safe. Then another officer enters the bay and assists in removing the prisoner from the car if needed and then all three are buzzed in.

One neat little trick is to have the gun safe wired with the intake bay garage door. If the door is open it closes when the officer turns the key in the gun safe.

Sounds very reasonable. I would bet the Jersey station will be reviewing their procedures quite soon. Glad the only fatality was the perp.

Very different situation. The fellow did not go to the police station looking to shoot a bunch of people. He got hauled in after a “domestic disturbance” and was trying to either get away or he was POed and drunk/stoned/whatever. He saw a chance to grab a gun and he grabbed the gun.

Obviously. If it's good enough for the Army, it's good enough for the Police.

The perp grabbed one of the cop's guns and opened fire is what I heard on the news earlier.
