    Do you realize some were wounded due to fragments?
    They probobly saved there own at least. It doesnt sound like this guy was just shooting people indiscriminately though.

    This place was full of people. When you have a whack job aiming at cops or anyone else you have to take him down.

    Are there any reports of bystanders being hit directly by the cops' bullets? Did any of them die?

    Not arguing with you, I would have done the same thing as the cops after reading the story. I was just clarifying that the guy was not just shooting random people. Fact is guns and crowded areas dont mix, the cops did what they had to do.

    Turns out that the nine people were shot by the police.

    Yes we know. Bullets dont stop. But the cops were totally justified given the situation.

    A couple of years ago in Spokane 3 cops shot 21 times at a man with a gun at close range and hit him 3 times. Adrenalin can really screw your aim up. Which brings me to another issue, cops and semi auto pistols. I prefer an old 6 shooter for the very reason that you can't spray bullets. It forces you to take aim and shoot because you know you only have a few rounds. IMO it is a safer gun to shoot in a situation like this NYC thing. Theres a reason full auto is only used for suppressive fire, you can't really hit anything like that. "spray and pray" A bit off subject but it just got me thinking.

    I understand that but it doesn't sound like any were directly hit and none of them died. I would gladly take a wound if it meant preventing someone else from being killed.

    And for those individuals it is not a concern to me, but for those that put in even less time at the range then a cop, having CCW for protection and having a gun when walking around it should be

    I noted that last night after watching the film-I don't believe the shooter engaged the police officers since his weapon jammed

    They were I hope aiming for the target, but missed with a large number of shots and hit 9 people. Any of those 9 could have been killed had the bullet hit them in a different spot.
