Probably why the article's a few paragraphs.  Crown Heights is certainly one of the places you'd find said poor people.

The club was at Utica Avenue, I'm pretty sure there's still poor people living around there.

No, because it's illegal to transport one's firearm inside the city.

You have to hand it to Malkovich in that movie. Anyone can be "so bad it's good" but he hit "so 'so bad it's good' it's bad."

Good point.  But they're surely on the way to being priced out; it's just a matter of time

Are there legal gambling clubs in Brooklyn?

Buck Dancer: darth_badger: Does this quality as a mass shooting?

No, because it's illegal to transport one's firearm inside the city.


For those unaware, there are two types of permits for firearms in New York: Unobtainium Carry Permits, and permits where you can only leave your house with the gun unloaded in a locked case to travel directly to and back from a very short list of destinations (just ranges within the city.) The second Circuit said this was fine.

The US Supreme Court agreed to review the challenge and, then and only then, New York frantically changed the law to add a couple more destinations to the list based on the examples the plaintiffs gave as places they should be allowed to travel and tried to moot the case so that the SCOTUS would not provide input on why the second circuit got the case wrong.

The law is dumb. People aren't getting caught with locked up, unloaded guns in their trunk on their way to go murder and rob people.

Yes.  It's called "riding the subway"

So it's just a regular shooting when it happens at an illegal gambling club but if more than one person gets capped at the Walmart...
 
2019-10-12 07:56:19 PM  
This is the kind of headline that ends up with me explaining to my friends that Brooklyn is basically the size of Baltimore, and that the folks I know live in Towson, and this happened in Canton.

Yup. NYC/CA/NJ gun control laws are dumb.

It will be used in the statistics as a mass shooting incident as it qualifies as 4 or more killed in a single event.  However it probably doesn't qualify in peoples minds as a mass shooting as it was criminal on criminal violence rather than an individuals choosing a public target and killing individuals who they have little if any relationship with.

My buddy has one of the unobtaniums. He does large cash deposits sometimes, and having a brother who is a Captain in the NYPD doesn't hurt either.

Hate to break it to everyone, but the Russians aren't the ones who hang out in Crown Heights on Utica Ave. They're more in Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay.

Crown Heights is a mix between Orthodox Jews, who, let's face it, aren't going to gamble, and 75% black.

To screw things up even more, Carry Permits issued in upstate New York are not valid in New York City. So someone from Albany, Buffalo, or Rochester, can't carry in NYC, even with a valid New York State carry permit.
