Thank goodness for a bullet resistant door that saved the life of a deputy in Arizona. You can also thank Obama for this war on police officers.

A bulletproof glass door shielded an Arizona sheriff’s deputy from a burst of gunfire in what Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio called an ambush.

Friday’s shooting outside a sheriff’s office substation in Surprise, Arizona, was the second time a county deputy has come under fire this month, Arpaio said.

The sheriff said a gunman parked his car outside the substation and “fired several times” at a deputy, who escaped injury after positioning himself by a bullet-resistant door.

Another deputy in the substation parking lot arrested the suspect after getting him to drop his weapon, Arpaio said. The suspect had a semiautomatic weapon in addition to the gun used in the shooting, the sheriff said.

Neither the suspect’s name nor the charges against him were released.

The motive for the shooting is unclear. Arpaio said it was the second “ambush” against one of his deputies in two weeks.

“There’s a war on cops,” the tough-talking sheriff told CNN affiliate KPHO-TV in Phoenix. “They better start thinking about that all the way from Washington on down.”
