Ben Cashner's rebuttal

Ben at Cold Hard Cashner responds to John Johnson of the, now defunct, Iowans for the Prevention of Gun Violence. Johnson wrote a short letter to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, Why are such powerful weapons available? decrying the availability of FN Five-seveN pistol used by the Fort Hood terrorist-shooter.
One of the weapons used in the Fort Hood shooting was an FN Five-seveN pistol manufactured by Belgium gun manufacturer FN Herstal. This gun was originally designed for military use, but is also sold on the U.S. civilian gun market. The manufacturer says this gun fires ammunition capable of piercing body armor. Who wears body armor? Law officers. So the FN Five-seveN pistol is for killing cops.

Ben finds out how many cops have been killed using this pistol. See The "Cop Killer" of Ft. Hood
