    Several people shot outside Empire state building

    I read the total is 10 people shot...sigh I can hear bloombergs big mouth already..


    New York City officials say several people have been shot outside the Empire State Building and that the gunman is dead.

    City police say three or four civilians have been wounded in the Friday morning shooting and that the shooter is dead.

    A fire department spokesman says it received a call about the shooting just after at 9 a.m. Friday and that emergency units were on the scene within minutes.

    The spokesman had no information about how many people were wounded or their conditions.

    The shooting occurred at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.

    Guns aren't banned in NY, it is supposed to be harder to get a permit. The truth of the matter is it doesn't matter very much how a person obtains a gun legally or illegally it will not stop people who want to kill other people.

    Well, when people refer to New York, they mean New York City, and that is what I was referencing. Yes, New York state allows guns, but it's next to impossible to get one with all the red tape one must fill out. New York City bans them. I remember discussing the issue while riding a bus to Kennedy Airport, and the bus driver said he hated it because he knew that the criminals still had the guns, but John Q Citizen was virtually unarmed.

    Agreed. It is typical of NYC though.

    Bloomberg has been complaining a lot recently that NYC restrictions are not as effective as they should be since it's so easy to get guns elsewhere and transport them to NYC. Seems like good proof of his point, actually.

    I hope everyone is ok.

    I am sure die hard anti-2nd amendment loons will say how dare you turn this into something political while ignoring the numerous other times they suggested monthly gun limits, ammo limits, magazine limits and other bull**** unconstitutional suggestions when ever some sicko shoots up a place.

    Just heard on the news that the gunman was fired from his job. The usual MO with somebody like this is he probably got so frustrated that he felt life wasn't worth living so he planned a group suicide with his boss and anyone who got a promotion at his expense. More than likely, he killed himself afterwards, or at least decided to try suicide by cop.
