    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.

    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.

    I thought only Chicago didn't allow guns in the city.

    As of June 13th, 2012, there have been 225 murders in Chicago by guns. If the pace is kept up it would be 400 by the end of the year. 967 shootings so far of non fatalities.

    Chicago is a terrible city. Violence abounds.

    Yes it happens here all the time, especially in the summer when it is hot, 19 people is a slow night on a weekend and average for mid week. You don't hear much about it because it is mostly gang or minority on minority violence and the Chicago political machine wants to keep it quiet so their ideas on control do not come into question. I have no problem if gang members take each other out, but there are a lot of times when innocents get caught in the crossfire, or are victims of an armed thug.

    Not to derail the thread anymore, but yes I believe this past weekend was pretty slow in Chicago with 30 injured by gunshots, I do not remember the number deceased.
