Still only want the police to be armed?

That title is targeted to the gun-control crowd, who adamantly repeat that they fear for their safety as long as I don't fear for mine.   They still want armed protection, personal armed guards at their beck and call that are backed by a labyrinth of procedure, and liability blocking.    The latest is that one of these personal protectors took it upon himself to make a few people easier to protect... by killing them.

"The shootings started Tuesday morning when a gunman walked into a burned-out home being rehabbed near rural Beecher and opened fire, killing worker Rolando Alonso, 45, and seriously wounding Josh Garza, 19. A 19-year-old co-worker escaped into a cornfield and called 911, police said.

About 40 minutes later, Keith Dahl, 64, was checking the bean fields on his property near Lowell, Ind., when he spotted a pickup truck approaching on the dirt road from the opposite direction, said his brother Robert Dahl. The two pickups stopped alongside each other, and the other man asked Keith Dahl about the possibility of storing honeybees on his property, then wrote down a name and phone number on a slip of paper, Robert Dahl said.

As Keith Dahl went to put the note in his center console, the man opened fire. Dahl played dead while the man wrestled Dahl's wallet away, taking about $60, and then shot him again, Robert Dahl said.

"Keith said he was holding his breath and not trying to breathe," said Robert Dahl. As blood poured from his wounds, Dahl drove to the nearest paved road and called 911."
