Pittdburgh, PA—Friends of accused cop killer Richard Poplawski are saying that he feared the Barack Obama administration was poised to ban guns. It was apparently not his own gun rights he was worried about. He had already lost those rights because of criminal activity.
Poplawski served a short stint in the U.S. Marine Corps and over an assault he was convicted in a Court-Martial proceeding. He received a Dishonorable Discharge. That is a military felony penalty that barred him for life from purchasing or possessing any firearms.
Is Richard Poplawski a new poster boy for gun control zealots? On the contrary, the dangerous Richard Poplawski was exactly why law-abiding Americans need the right to keep and bear Arms.
As for the murdered policemen, Crimefile News conveys our deepest condolences to the family, friends and fellow officers of these brave men.
