not a single officer was killed with his own firearm in 2009
Narrowed down to just the year “2009” you maybe correct but there is an infamous copcam video where an Texas lawman was over powered and shot dead by his own firearm by a punk in a carload of drug smugglers he just pulled over..... just saying..
The problem I had with your review was, you used the word “many”. you got to be careful what you writean opinion when it’s not based on fact.
I have several tapes were officers were shot with their own Firearm.but it’s not “many”.
Careful what you say, or you will sound like you are taking thee anti-gun view.

First of all I never said "many". You have me confused with someone else.
Second, I have no problem with people having the right to open carry or concealed, just the wisdom between.
And third,according to an AP story(http://www.policeone.com/police/products/articles/ 100228/)
There are no national statistics on how many times officers' guns are taken away. But the FBI says that of the 616 law enforcement officers killed on duty by criminals from 1994 through 2003, 52 were killed with their own weapon, amounting to 8 percent.
You need to expand your research criteria and not narrow it down to a single year from a single source.
These are not my facts but the F-B-I.
