    From Evil Fox news "A law enforcement source told Fox News that the gunman, described as security guard, was a disgruntled employee who was fired Thursday from his job at a location either inside the Empire State Building or near it."
    Maybe the guy had a permit for the weapon.

    According to this, one person was fatally wounded before the cops shot the gunman.

    CNN quoted witnesses as saying the incident apparently started when a man chased another man and pulled out a weapon, described as looking like a sawed-off shotgun, and opened fire. An unarmed security guard in charge of elevators inside the Empire State Building then ran out and pursued the gunman while calling for help, CNN said.

    Police quickly joined the chase and shot the gunman three times, CNN reported, quoting witnesses.

    Maybe it's just because the media is paying more attention to it right now, but does it seem to anyone else like there have been a LOT of mass shootings recently?
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    The report I just heard on the radio said he was a women's accessories designer and was laid off a year ago.They also said one other person was killed and 9 injured, some possibly by police gunfire. Sure hope the person who died (besides the gunman) wasn't shot by a cop. Sounds like they need to disarm the police. They seem to be every bit as reckless as the shooter.

    Well, you know the argument would come up. If we conservatives didn't bring it up, it would have surfaced from the left side and still been part of the discussion.

    Yes, it does.

    Police are notoriously bad shots. Some years ago, there was an incident in Virginia Beach where some guy was said to try to run over some cops with his car. After over 100 shots, it was discovered that only a few actually hit the perp to kill him. Most either hit the car or were never found. At least they could hit the car. It's the idea of pray and spray and hope something hits in the melee.

    You're right I hope innocent by standers weren't hurt.

    Re: Multiple People Shot Outside Empire State Building

    I'll show my age and tell you what I know from living in NYC 1955-1960.

    The NYC gun ban is called the Sullivan Law. Sullivan was a crooked politician who got this law passed for his own protection. Getting caught with a gun in NYC is very serious. However, like drugs, you can buy one if you want one.

    The law is just to make sure honest citizens can't fight crooked bureaucrats.

    Re: Multiple People Shot Outside Empire State Building

    I'm curious. If preventing shooters from obtaining the weapons they need to kill won't stop them, what will? I hear a lot of "Rawr! Can't ban guns!" in these arguments, but very seldom any actual alternatives. The only idea I heard after the Batman shooting was all kinds of security in movie theatres. That suggestion was, of course, absurd, and it boggles my mind how the same people who lament the coming of a Big Brother future were in favor of constant scrutiny of people anytime they go outside their homes.

    So, gun advocates, if disarming the violent won't stop them, what will?
