I'm Assuming that because it was a Municipal Building it was a "Gun Free Zone"
I'm also assuming since the round did not penetrate the officer vest a handgun and not a rifle was used! Just guessing

.45 cal hand gun with a suppressor.

Both Mayor and Police Chief of Houston have denounced gun violence. With Police Chief asking when will congress take action.

Death toll up to 13 including shooter.

Kiss goodby any hearing protection bills.

With suppressor...so he filled out his form, waited the time, paid the money, and bought his suppressor at a gun store? I really would like to know the answer to that one, unlikely the mass news media will want anyone to know.

I guess the suppressor didn't work very well (those scary silencers) because of all of the reports "we heard gunshots" etc. :)

Oh the talking heads are already siezing upon it. Local channel had interviewer asking survivor to describe the shots and how close did they sound.

"Did you think you were safe because the shots sounded so muffled?"

"Were you surprised to learn the shooter was inside your building?"

Yeah not leading questions at all... no agenda here!

It appears firearms are allowed inside municople buildings. This may or may not be true considering the source is a mainstream media outlet. They also state police found a pistol and a rifle near the gunman but later state the chief wouldn’t comment on the presence of a rifle, but he did confirm a .45 caliber pistol, suppressor and extended magazines. It almost seems like an uncoordinated attempt to plant evidence to use for anti-gun legislation.

But trusted, responsible, law-abiding public employees are not allowed to carry their own guns with which to protect themselves.

Ilhan Omar slammed for blaming NRA for Virginia shooting that left 12 people dead
The embattled Minnesota Democrat took a swipe at the NRA just hours after a disgruntled city employee went on a shooting spree that left 12 people dead and four more injured

John Lott provides FACTS:
Another mass public shooting, another place where the victims were banned from carrying guns, the attack at Virginia Beach
