I find this hard to believe - there are no guns in NYC - Mayor Bloomberg has declared it a "Gun Free zone"


Bloomberg: 'Cops may have shot innocent bystanders in an attempt to kill the shooter...'


Construction worker Chris Ogden was working on a scaffold above the building’s 33rd St. entrance when he watched in disbelief as the gunman — in a suit and carrying a briefcase — opened fire.

“He shot the guy in the head,” said Ogden, 23. “The guy went down. He took a second shot when he was down.”

The well-dressed shooter then “walked down the block, like nothing was happening, real casual,” Ogden said. “We were screaming from the top, ‘It’s the guy in the grey suit!’”

yep....better ban all guns. Can't have people being "accidentally" shot by the very people that are protecting them.



And we all know how the looney's and thugs will abide by the law.

the real reason you should always run from cops


All Empire State shooting victims were wounded by officers

New York (CNN) -- All nine people injured in Friday's shooting in front of the Empire State Building were wounded by police gunfire, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Saturday.

The officers unloaded a total of 16 rounds at a disgruntled former apparel designer, killing him after he shot and killed a co-worker and engaged in a gunbattle with police, authorities have said.

These people were trained. The real reason you don't want everyone packing and taking a shot at the bad guy is the number misses that hit innocent people.

So it's okay to shoot up innocent people as long as you have training?

No, it's telling how even people with training, when faced with the situation, can't hit the target, or only the target.
