Two dead, nine wounded in shooting near the Empire State Building | The Lookout - Yahoo! News Golly last I checked New Yorkers almost universally are disarmed legally. It is VERY hard to get a permit to license a hand gun. So tell us gun grabbers how are those laws working out? Further it is unclear who exactly shot the 9 wounded all not seriously wounded, some at least were probably shot by the cops. The 2 dead are the shooter and his former supervisor. Now before you insist if no one was allowed to own firearms this wouldn't have happened, explain how with a porous southern border that most of you support we would stop guns from coming in for illegal sale?
