Unfortunately, this is the stuff that would be completely undeterred by gun laws... unless we went to a total militarian state, which no one wants.

This should be getting headlines, but it's not sensational enough to strike fear into us white folks' hearts since it's inner city and not at a movie theater, or school, or shopping center.

So you don't think it could be terrorism or one crazed gunman or a plot by the Dems to get your guns?

At least 10 people were shot Friday in front of the Empire State Building, according to the New York Office of Emergency Management.

The gunman was shot and killed by police, the New York Police Department reported.

Authorities converged on the building around 9 a.m. after reports of gunfire.

Police have closed several streets around 5th Avenue and 34th Street in Manhattan.

New York resident Max Kaplan, 22, said he heard at least nine gunshots. He said several ambulances have arrived at the scene.

"We're all very shaken up at the office," he said.

The Empire State Building is one of the most famous skyscrapers in the world, and one of New York City's best-known tourist attractions.

Each year, about 4 million people visit the building's two observation decks. At more than 1,453 feet tall, the landmark building reaches more than a quarter-mile into the sky.

I still have mine. I just don't think I need to be able to wear them into a bar or a Courthouse.
