...and he and the police tag 8 others, wounding them. Expect Mayor Bloomberg to call for extremely strict gun-control laws throughout the country any minute.

Sounds like Mayor Bloomberg could better protect his "subjects" by disarming NY's Finest...

Sounds like the perp was only after his boss until these geniuses in the NYPD dediced to open fire in a crowded area...real smart guys, but there UNION so what can you do?

Tack

Bloomberg has never been so quiet about an incident. His cops wounded 8 or 9 people. He has nothing to say or the NRA and Gun friendly people would go after him. He left this one alone.
