Gun Control

Brace yourself for more talk about anti gun laws. Democrats will have a field day.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I was referring to this:
2 killed, 9 injured in shooting near Empire State Building - U.S. News

It appears the gunman had a particular grudge against the one person he actually made sure he killed.

It also appears he had every intention of committing suicide by cop, and shooting at other people then turning the gun on responding officers pretty much sealed his fate.

I have to point out that some by standers were shot by the police as well, it wasn't all him as the media wants you to think.

Oh yes, the article states that, so I don't think it's slanted one way or the other.

Yes it does if you read it. Most headlines that I've been seeing are something along the lines of "Gunman kills 1, Wounds 9..." And once people read the headlines, they tend to quickly skim over acticles and may miss it. Yet another example of media trying to manipulate society (of course that's just my opinion). One lined facts like this have a way of dissappearing in the long run.

Interesting. I wonder if the police were using rifles or handguns. I mean, if it turns out people were injured by "friendly fire" in this case, I would think it would indicate a rather large issue w training.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Just more proof that gun control doesn't help much. NY city has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country.

Big news from a big mouth, Bloomburg.

This didn't make much news:

19 people shot in overnight shootings across Chicago - chicagotribune.com

Is it because black on black crime is not news worthy?

More killed in one day in Chicago than in a month in Afaganistan and it barely makes the news.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

So, it starts again....cop bashing. Why don't you try stepping into the line of fire some day?


And, BTW Wetrain, I am a democrat AND a law enforcement firearms instructor and gun toter. Try not stereotyping that way.....OK?
