Is it time to take guns away from our police officers? It seems just about every day police kill people. Police are armed with a billy club and Taser, which should be sufficient for most encounters. Call in the SWAT team for more dangerous situations. Please do not interpret that we need to totally disarm police officers. I would like to hear the opinion of other people as there must be a better way of restraining people that are mentally ill or at the mercy of the police.
