obama to display rep on gun violence that was shot by a cop
Quote:Rep. Jim Langevin smiles in his congressional office as he confidently demonstrates the robotics of his wheelchair, popping upright on the front two wheels of his iBOT 4000 to bring himself eye-to-eye with ABC News' chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.

As a 16-year-old, Langevin was critically injured while working with the Warwick Police Department in the Boy Scout Explorer program. A veteran officer handling a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol, not realizing a round rested in the chamber, pulled the trigger, bouncing a bullet off a metal locker and striking the teenager in the neck, severing his spinal cord.

When President Obama prepares to begin his State of the Union address and looks out to his Cabinet, the Supreme Court and a sea of lawmakers tonight, he'll likely notice the seven-term Democrat off to his right sitting up front in a wheel chair. But Langevin won't be the only reminder in the House chamber of how guns can change the course of history.;_ylv=3
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Quote:"Even though what should have been the safest [of] environments, in my situation being in a police station with trained police officers, my accident happened at the hands of two weapons experts on the police SWAT team," he said. "If an accident can happen there, an accident can happen anywhere."

The law? The law is a human institution...
The solution is simple---remove guns from police.
