Christopher Dorner’s rampage stemmed from his belief that he was wronged by the L.A. Police Department. This over-the-top entitlement mentality would be equivalent to someone rampaging because they were denied food stamps, welfare, or housing assistance. This is clearly a danger in creating entitlements to start with or cutting existing entitlements.

On a side note, would a background check have prevented Mr. Dorner from obtaining weapons?
