A followup question:
If the propensity of teargas cannisters to cause fires (SLA shootout, Waco, etc) is well known to the authorities;
and the deputies threw said cannisters into a bedroom window knowing full well that this danger existed;
and the insurance companies will have to pay off on the subsequent damages caused by such actuions;
Can they sue the county of Los Angeles for arson to attempt to recoup the losses to their bottom line?
Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
