Mayor Bloomberg's ban on guns did not prevent this from happening, why is everyone so quick to blame the NRA for situations like this? It makes my blood BOIL! :mad:

Must be an error in the news. NYC doesn't allow people to have guns, so this couldn't possibly have happened.

I think a bunch of people might have gotten shot from stay bullets, from the cops ? The reports aren't that good. But he had a 45 with an 8 round mag and two officers returned fire. It would suck to get shot..... but from a stray bullet would blow even more if that was the case. Nothing to see here.... move along.

What evidence is there of that? I haven't seen it yet.:confused::confused:

At first they said he had a shot gun, then they said he shot his boss and walked away where two officers saw him draw a weapon and they returned fire.

Strange how this and dozens of other shootings are recently making their way into the psyche of America, in a manner that supports the cries of
this admistration's war against gun owners and their second amendment rights. It's a cheap clarion call, really, and as transparent as the administration
Obama once promised will be if ever elected.

19 people were shot in Chicago last night alone. Gun control at its best.
