Philadelphia Police Officer Sgt. Steven Liczbinski

PHILADELPHIA One suspect was charged and a second was being sought Sunday in the killing of a police officer who was shot with an assault rifle while responding to a bank robbery, police said.

Sgt. Steven Liczbinski, a 12-year veteran, was responding to the robbery of a bank inside a grocery store around 11:30 a.m. Saturday. The suspects fled, and opened fire after Liczbinski confronted them a short distance away, authorities said.

Full Story

I have long maintained that "Gun Control" meant hitting your target with every round. No more. Enough is enough! There is no reason in the world for civilians to own military style assault weapons.

If you want home defense, buy a shotgun. Personal defense? Handgun. Hunting? Rifle. Fighting Al Qaeda? Assault weapons.

It's time for a Nationwide ban on civilian owned assault weapons!
Couple that with mandatory Life Imprisonment for any crime committed with an assault weapon and we might actually prevent another family from losing their loved one! A loved one who swore to serve and protect us from the animals who prey on innocent civilians. If these scumbags will fire on a Law Officer, imagine what they would do to unarmed civilians.

Let's get real, people. Legitimate self-defense does not require the use of an AK-47 or an M-16. These are weapons used by drug cartels and lawbreakers who have no intention of ever giving up. Let's take them off the streets. Let's make sure that Sgt. Steven Liczbinski, did not sacrifice his life in vain.

This is for you Sarge.

The Final Inspection

The Officer stood and faced his God

Which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as brightly as his brass.

Step forward now, oh, Officer,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?

The Officer squared his shoulders... said,

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,

'cause those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

'cause the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep...

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills just got too steep,

And I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here,

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fear.

"If you've a place for me here, Lord,

It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,

So if you don't, I'll understand."

A silence fell all 'round the throne

Where Saints had often trod,

As the Officer awaited,

The judgment of his God.

Step forward now, My Officer,

You've borne your burdens well,

Walk your beat on Heaven's streets,

You've served your time in Hell.

Sleep in Peace, Brother.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
