    HAHAH that's funny right there......you are joking right...I mean you can't be serious right. a rocket launcher is kind of over kill and kinda hard to handle in close quarters ....but a handgun may have saved the victims life. At least he would have had a fighting chance instead of being slaughtered like a sheep.

    If he had a rocket launcher this would have never happened. Denying us our constitutional rights to keep and bear rocket launchers keeps us from protecting ourselves...
