Where's Wayne LaPierre when you need him?

Alton Sterling was killed because he had a gun. The police were originally called because they got a call that he had a gun. They shot him several times at point blank range because one of the officers yelled "he's got a gun!" even though they had him pinned down and could see there was no gun in his hands.

Louisiana is an open carry state. And yet the cops killed him for carrying a gun. Or maybe because he was black with a gun. They should make those details clearer in the open carry statute.
