FTA: At 10 shot at Empire State Building
One man says he heard at least nine gunshots


Well I'd bloody well hope so

Aye lass?

At 10 shot at Empire State Building, authorities say

Nice proofreading, CNN.

/bet they fix it quick

You need more guns when you have a problem with guns.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:17 AM
Were they so excited they forgot to add "least" to the headline?
 
2012-08-24 10:17:18 AM
What was their political beliefs. This is important
 
2012-08-24 10:17:26 AM
My husband works at 34th and Park. He and most of his employees walk that way to work every day. Thankfully he's in CA today. We're hoping all his employees check in at some point.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:30 AM
Only four random people were shot this time. boooring.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:34 AM
He's going to be white, isn't he?
 
2012-08-24 10:17:35 AM
best wishes go out to all the victims and their families.

NYC needs tougher gun laws.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:35 AM
Another sad, sad story. My prayers go out ot the victims and their families.
 
2012-08-24 10:17:39 AM
Won't somebody think of the New Yorkers?

Conspiracy angle: Exactly 4,000 days since 9/11/01.

Coincidence?

Women in church are causing shootings?
 
2012-08-24 10:18:15 AM
How are those strict gun laws working out for you Bloomberg? At least he couldn't throw a large soda on them.

Mass casualty shootings happen every day in the inner cities

It's just that people only pay attention to or care about the ones that involve white people or middle class or higher people.
 
2012-08-24 10:18:40 AM
Here comes all the "If they had guns laws in NY like in Texas, this wouldn't have happened" crap the next few days...
 
2012-08-24 10:18:52 AM
Local reports are saying it wasn't AT the ESB, just across the street, and appears to have been a targeted hit type thing, and most of the injuries being people caught in the gunfight with cops.
 
2012-08-24 10:18:57 AM
'Causality' is actually the right word, because The Onion already knew about this yesterday.

In case I don't get the greenlight: http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-celebrates-full-week-without-d eadly-mass-sh,29293/

Where were the Avengers, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, etc when you need them?

I think someone being killed or injured counts as a casualty. So it really depends if you consider 10 to be a mass casualty.
 
2012-08-24 10:19:15 AM
Since it's in NY, at least we'll have millions of Instagrammed photos to squint at
 
2012-08-24 10:19:17 AM
Someone needs to post that "Tom Tomorrow" cartoon, where the penguin concedes how the NRA has won and we just need to come to grips with the fact that we're going to have mass shootings every so often.

/hoping for the best for my fellow New Yorkers

FTFA:

"The shooter, distraught over his inability to obtain his morning coffee in a 20-ounce cup and frustrated in his efforts to locate baby formula for his wife..."

You're doing a heck of a job, Bloomie.
 
2012-08-24 10:19:26 AM
If we all had guns, there would've only been ONE civilian shot.
 
2012-08-24 10:19:30 AM
Can we fly in a podunk sheriff to determine whether this is domestic terrorism?
 
2012-08-24 10:19:30 AM
You know guys, I'm starting to get a little tired of this.

Everyone Panic?
 
2012-08-24 10:19:54 AM
Well I'll have to say I'm pretty shaken up. I walked pass there at 8:45 as I do everyday on the way to work from Penn station.

/I better lay off the coffee as I'm shaking enough already. Damn scary.

Oddly enough, The Onion published this article yesterday (16 hours ago): http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-celebrates-full-week-without-d eadly-mass-sh,29293/

NEW YORK-Cheers filled the streets and American flags waved triumphantly through the air today as the nation turned out in full force to celebrate an entire week having passed since the last time a madman opened fire on innocent civilians in some kind of fatal mass shooting. "We did it, folks! We banded together and managed to go seven whole days without killing our fellow Americans in a senseless murdering spree!" Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano said in a speech to jubilant throngs gathered in Times Square. "Yes, some people were shot this week, but not in a random, highly public, viscerally disturbing way and-most importantly-not all in one place, by one psychopath. Maybe one day we can live in a society where abominable large-scale gun violence stays out of the national headlines for a whole month even!" At press time, federal authorities had issued a reminder to all Americans that a lot can happen in 24 hours, "so let's not get too excited yet.

Quickest funny aneurysm moment in history?
 
2012-08-24 10:20:02 AM
The most tragic thing about this is the discovery that the NY Times website can't handle the traffic this shooting has caused.

Oh, and the people who died, of course. If it really was an employee who just got fired and went postal, that farking sucks.
 
2012-08-24 10:20:17 AM
OMG A woman mass shooter!

I lived in NYC for a long time. There were reports of shootings all the time but never "mass shootings"

Lots of stabbings.

Largely true.

It's also an area that's heavily policed by "uniform cops" and cops in riot gear with semi-auto's.
 
2012-08-24 10:20:32 AM
What the hell is wrong with people?? We can barely go a week without some horrific shooting spree somewhere. WTF??
 
2012-08-24 10:20:43 AM
I call fake.

Everyone knows guns are illegal in New York City.
 
2012-08-24 10:20:44 AM
Also more people have been shot in chicago since last night than what just happened.

You mean a firefight with an armed gunman can result in innocent bystanders getting shot? I don't believe it.
 
2012-08-24 10:20:56 AM

ABC News is reporting the ESB shooting was a workplace dispute that spilled out onto the street.

Suddenly have two thoughts. One is that the 1300 price tag of that small Kimber 45 ACP may not be so bad. Two is to go stock up on Ammo for my 9 mm.
 
2012-08-24 10:21:27 AM
If everyone in NYC were heavily armed this would have never happened.
 
2012-08-24 10:21:34 AM
The article mentions a Gunman...I hope it wasn't my uncle, Art Gunman, who lives in that area. He's prone to fits of rage when he's not on his medication.
 
2012-08-24 10:21:40 AM
I see Obama's plot to take guns away from the American people is continuing.
