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

Lots of stabbings.


Maybe not New York, but places like Philly, New Orleans, etc.

I Said: Largely true.

It's also an area that's heavily policed by "uniform cops" and cops in riot gear with semi-auto's.


That's one of the things that weirds me out when I go into NYC.

Walker: How are those strict gun laws working out for you Bloomberg? At least he couldn't throw a large soda on them.


Working pretty awesome, gun crime is low. Probably lower than where you live.

Aarontology: 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 NYC because ZOMG 9/11 TURRISTS!!.

I'm so sick of this shiat.

I don't think you get that not everyone wants to carry a gun on them at all times, for the same reason no one wants to wear a helmet at all times.

This will be an affair they'll remember.

blur612: Conspiracy angle: Exactly 4,000 days since 9/11/01.

Coincidence?


And only 118 days until the apocalypse. Plus only 4,031 days until the ULTRA-apocalypse. Coincidence? I think not.

People don't open fire on pedestrians in midtown Manhattan every day. Shut the fark up.

If these people were armed, they would have been bulletproof. It's science.

Sure glad NYC has those strong gun-control laws.

I worked there for 7 years until I moved upstate. Now I have a reason to be glad I moved to Binghamton.

Not necessarily; it's just so common among some "peoples" that they simply don't make the news anymore.

BunkoSquad: Since it's in NY, at least we'll have millions of Instagrammed photos to squint at


No, Midtown is too mainstream for the hipsters.

NeoBad: 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.


UGH, please not a 1911 variant. 8+1 is a pretty paltry capacity nowadays.

Though, I suppose, once you're out of ammo, you can always throw the super carry pro at the bad guys. makes a pretty good blunt force instrument.
 
2012-08-24 10:23:53 AM
I'm sure the elevator guy who chased the gunman will get fired for violating some HR policy.
 
2012-08-24 10:24:00 AM

imtheonlylp: If we all had guns, there would've only been ONE civilian shot.


No, you're wrong. even more people would have been shot.

Silly Jesus: He's going to be white, isn't he?


Who said it was a he?

/it's a he, and he's white. I'd put money on that.

I wonder how long before Bloomberg wants to ban not only all firearms possession, but hollow plastic tubes longer than 5 inches (aka straws) just in case.
 
2012-08-24 10:24:14 AM
Two guys in a car shot 8 people in Chicago last night. 6 of the 8 were teenagers.


Step it up, New York.
 
2012-08-24 10:24:14 AM
shooting?

In NY?

I thought they had strict gun laws?
 
2012-08-24 10:24:18 AM

Carth: LineNoise: 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.

You mean a firefight with an armed gunman can result in innocent bystanders getting shot? I don't believe it.


Yea there is always a hercules team hanging out around the ESB. Basically cops in full military gear with heavy weapons. Pretty dumb place to pull out a gun if you don't have a deathwish, and an assload of people always hanging around to get caught in any kind of crossfire.
 
2012-08-24 10:24:19 AM

LineNoise: most of the injuries being people caught in the gunfight with cops.


No, that can't be right, because an armed person responding to a crazed gunman will calmly and efficiently subdue the killer with one well-placed head shot, at least according to last month's issue of Internet Hero Fantasy Jerkoff Magazine.

carrion_luggage: 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..."


Oh, well, then. Carry on, shooter. Completely justified.

That is why it is news.

Until recently, I almost never carried off duty as my Glock 26 is bulky and uncomfortable but I've changed my mind on that. I carry ALWAYS now. This shiat can happen anytime, anywhere.

And I'm not NRA gun-nut. Quite the opposite, actually.
 
2012-08-24 10:24:55 AM

Blueintheballs: You need more guns when you have a problem with guns.


Guns have been around for over 100 years. This mass shooting thing seems pretty recent.

Maybe we should start looking into what's causing these crackpots to WANT to kill lots of people, rather than blaming the tool they do it with.

For the record, NYC has some of the MOST restrictive guns laws ANYWHERE.

Thanks to all the Farkers who emailed me and asked if I was okay.

I blame Global Warming.

LineNoise: Also more people have been shot in chicago since last night than what just happened.


False equivalency is false.

More people died in the Holocaust than died of AIDS last year. Guess AIDS isn't a problem! Herp derpy derp derp!

The New York Post said a total of 10 people were shot and
that one of the two fatalities was a woman described as an
innocent bystander who died of her wounds.

CNN quoted witnesses as saying the incident apparently
started when a man chased another man and pulled out a weapon,
described as looking like a sawed-off shotgun, and opened fire.
An elevator operator inside the Empire State Building then ran
out and pursued the gunman while calling for help, CNN said.
Police quickly joined the chase and shot the gunman three
times, CNN reported, quoting witnesses.

crab66: If everyone in NYC were heavily armed this would have never happened.


Yeah, that's why there are never mass shootings in Harlem.

What the hell has happened to our society?
 
2012-08-24 10:26:18 AM

Galloping Galoshes: Sure glad NYC has those strong gun-control laws.


if we are going to play speculation time, I'd put some cash on most of the innocent people who got injured being hit by the cops. If anything, something like this shows why it is a bad idea to have even more guns on the street in NYC.

/not anti-gun, or anti-cop, I just don't see the need for concealed carry in NYC, and think we are better without it.

THIS. It's that whole East Coast bias, which is why us White Sox fans always get pissed at the Eastern Seaboard Programming Network.

2012-08-24 10:26:27 AM
Since New York has some of the most draconian gun laws in the country, shouldn't have this been impossible?
 
2012-08-24 10:26:28 AM

El Morro: 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


This right here.

Like the cartoon says I'll fully admit that gun fans have won and they can have all the weapons they want. But at least let us biatch a little when someone goes on a shooting spree.
 
2012-08-24 10:26:30 AM
Shirley more gun laws would curtail this type of behavior, no?

We do, and they work great. Are you one of those retards that think the laws were written with the idea that they would magically make guns disappear?

obviously, they are not strong enough.

NYPost and ABCNews say it was a workplace dispute.

Let's ban working!
