Stoj: Two guys in a car shot 8 people in Chicago last night. 6 of the 8 were teenagers.


Also farkin' lame...

Stoj: Step it up, New York.


No... that is an incorrect response.

They aren't even trying to tie this to Muslim terrorists.

Titts_McGhee: 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.


At least that's his story.

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.


Clearly the result of poor gun control.
 
2012-08-24 10:31:29 AM  
4 shot, but not killed. Shooter dead. Aren't more people shot on a day-to-day basis in NYC? Or is this just an issue because it was rich white people?
 
2012-08-24 10:31:34 AM  

James72: NYPost and ABCNews say it was a workplace dispute.


This was probably the day they replaced the vending machine candy with healthy snacks.

AN APPLE OR A GRANOLA BAR FOR A SNACK?! F*CK THIS NOISE! WHERE'S MY GUN?

What happened to the 10 million dollar surveillance system they had in place there?

namegoeshere: Stoj: Two guys in a car shot 8 people in Chicago last night. 6 of the 8 were teenagers.


Step it up, New York.

Yes, that was all over the national MSM all night. Couldn't get any other news... Oh wait, no it wasn't. First I'm hearing of it, actually.

If somebody had shot 6 kids in Queens, nobody would care.


On a local sports radio station there has been a tongue in cheek tally of white sox runs vs people shot every weekend.

vegasj: Stoj: Two guys in a car shot 8 people in Chicago last night. 6 of the 8 were teenagers.


Step it up, New York.

shhhh, we don't want to talk about those shootings.

We only want to disarm white Americans who are law abiding.


Like James Holmes? He was a model American until he decided to stop being a model American. Maybe today is your day.

JerseyTim: Good news, everyone. The Hipster Cop is on the scene:
[gothamist.com image 640x478]
He'll take care of everything.


He probably has the best info, seeing as he was there before the shooting made the news.
 
2012-08-24 10:32:15 AM  
Was the gunman a liberal or conservative? My sense of outrage is hanging in the balance
 
2012-08-24 10:32:30 AM  
These people don't care about penalties. These people have thrown in the towel and everything else. If you don't confront causes, the effects will finally confront you. You turn a corner and walk right into yourself. You will wonder how you ever thought it didn't involve you, if you survive.
 
2012-08-24 10:32:30 AM  
This is certainly going to be a big thread.

If it was a wave, I would surf on it.
 
2012-08-24 10:32:36 AM  
The gunman was shot and killed by police, the New York Police Department reported.

Good Cop! Double his donut allotment for the year, give him a medal and pay for his ammunition.

Warlordtrooper: What was their political beliefs. This is important


Obviously a Liberal. Only Liberals are violent. ONLY Liberals.

Lost Thought 00: 4 shot, but not killed. Shooter dead. Aren't more people shot on a day-to-day basis in NYC? Or is this just an issue because it was rich white people?


It's the borrough and that it's a "mass" shooting.

There was a mass shooting in Brooklyn recently that was major news in NYC and NYS, but it happened at night so the newsbreaks weren't read by everyone who's supposed to be at work.

Damn it Finch HE NEEDS YOU BACK. Where the hell are you?

The Muthaship: Can we fly in a podunk sheriff to determine whether this is domestic terrorism?


epguides.com

Yep. Looks like terrorism to me.

darch: Well, considering that all the news reports are beginning to show that this was a dispute between two co-workers that spilled out into the street, followed by one of the co-workers pulling out a gun and starting to shoot at the other guy (and in the process hitting innocent bystanders), I'm more worried about people like you who would have a gun in the first place.

I'm a cop genius. I am required to carry on and off-duty.


So what you were saying in your Boobies is that you had been intentionally disregarding department policy by not carrying off-duty before?
 
2012-08-24 10:33:33 AM  

imtheonlylp: Shirley more gun laws would curtail this type of behavior, no?


No, they won't. And don't call me Shirley.

It....watched the shooting? What else was it supposed to do?

hdhale: You'll have to wait for the ballistics report on how many of the rounds hitting civilians were actually fired by cops. I look forward the final report.


I don't think we will ever see that report.

It is very wrong that I love this...

How are all those anti-murder laws working out for you NYC?
 
2012-08-24 10:33:55 AM  

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

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.


My mother makes me wear a helmet at all times.
 
2012-08-24 10:34:10 AM  

hdhale: BunkoSquad: 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.

You'll have to wait for the ballistics report on how many of the rounds hitting civilians were actually fired by cops. I look forward the final report.


Actually latest reports is he walked into a business across the street that supposedly owed him monday. Shot the manager, a few other people there, and then got into a gunfight with the cops on his way out the door.

Anyway, those arguing that gun control laws contributed to this in either direction are idiots. There were probably thousands of people on that street when he came out the door. If even a few of them started shooting in return, you would have had a lot more people hit.
 
2012-08-24 10:34:19 AM  

Richard Flaccid: OMG A woman mass shooter!


Masso: I was about 50 feet away from the guy who was killed, and it was definitely a targeted shooting. Apparently he walked right up to the guy and shot him in the head.


Anyone have a source for the "woman mass shooter" claim?
 
2012-08-24 10:34:22 AM  
Bloomberg, what's your plan?
 
2012-08-24 10:34:35 AM  

sweetmelissa31: 10 people were shot but let's talk about how I am oppressed by gun laws


This is a good point.

Please tell us, CNN. Was the gun obtained legally? This is the key.
 
2012-08-24 10:34:53 AM  

SableTigre: What the hell is wrong with people?? We can barely go a week without some horrific shooting spree somewhere. WTF??


Hey, don't leap to conclusions. We don't yet know if this is horrific.
 
2012-08-24 10:35:07 AM  
How many more shootings do we have to have in this country before people finally accept that we must have more guns?

/ this is what gun nuts actually believe
 
2012-08-24 10:35:13 AM  
Also, if we can all take a moment and say a quick prayer for the 2 people who drew the short straw and are going to cornell medical center, they can probably use our thoughts.

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


Well over 70% of society is classified as "white" Latino's included in there so statistically yes he will be.

Whar are all the concealed carriers that could've stopped this? WHAR!?

It's not nice to assume he has boobies or any other kind of weight issue, especially one capable of talking.

WNBC: Gunman was fired from his job yesterday

- The Cycle (@thecyclemsnbc) August 24, 2012



This is why you fire people on Fridays. That's just some bad management.

So what you were saying in your Boobies is that you had been intentionally disregarding department policy by not carrying off-duty before?

There are stipulations to that regulation where if it is impossible to properly conceal the weapon or if you know you will be drinking alcohol, you are not required to. That kinda thing.

WHOA BUDDY

I've been assured that can never happen. That's not how bullets work or something.

The entire debate about gun control is if gun control laws are effective at stopping crime. This cartoon basically says "Well if you just assume I'm right that gun control curbs gun crime, then I'm right." It is a dumb cartoon and you're dumb for thinking it's a scathing criticism of gun rights advocates.

probesport: Too bad it wasn't a gun free zone.


Stop embarrassing gun rights advocates. When someone gets shot where there is a law you don't like don't dance around like a ghoulish child. There have been plenty of shootings where there are free and open gun laws. There is little justification for the "more guns means more safety" side as well. You're just being more of a dick about it.
 
2012-08-24 10:36:34 AM  
Not Chicago? Not a shooting against conservatives?

INSTA GREENLIT

crazy over here right now.
i work across the street.
cops and tourist everywhere
 
2012-08-24 10:36:51 AM  
AP News is reporting that the shooting stemmed from a workplace dispute.

Well, at least they took it outside...
 
2012-08-24 10:36:57 AM  

darch: 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.


But if it does, you're going to join in?

Ever notice how not one of these stores ends with, "one of the other citizens pulled their gun and killed the assailant, saving everyone"? Yeah... me either.
