If you’re a dirt-bag criminal, what’s the quickest and easiest place to find yourself a pistol, a shotgun and maybe a patrol rifle along with plenty of ammo when in places where guns are highly regulated and seldom seen among civilians in place like Illinois, New Jersey or say… Massachusetts?
Find yourself a parked squad car with a cop inside it.
Kill the cop and go shopping.
As an added bonus, you might be able to pick up some body armor, police radios and heaven knows what else.
That’s exactly the motive investigators have concluded was the reason why the welfare recipient islamic jihadists in Boston killed MIT police office Sean Collier.
Unfortunately for the bumbling evil men, Collier’s level-three retention holster retained his pistol on his lifeless body following the ambush assassination and the islamic tangos left without his duty weapon.
As a homicidal criminal predator or islamic terrorist, you don’t need any special government permitting or waiting periods if you kill a cop and take his guns. There’s no record-keeping requirements, financial payments, background checks, or child safety locks involved with assassinating a cop to get a high-quality gun quickly.
In the process, society loses a trained police officer and we see pictures like those above.
