“The ‘demon’ Rikers Island officer who killed himself after shooting his ex and executing a Massachusetts cop should have been stripped of his gun more than a year ago, a source told the [New York] Daily News. Correction Officer Shawn Bryan was not allowed to carry a gun because he hadn’t been qualified at a firing range since September 2010.” I’m confused. Is the News saying that if the Corrections Department had confiscated Officer Bryan’s gun, he wouldn’t have shot anyone? Because he couldn’t have secured access to another one? What about the fact that Bryan didn’t have a Massachusetts LTC (License to Carry)? Or that he was under an order of protection? Once again, it’s always easiest to blame the gun.
