    End gun free zones and you will stop mass shootings

    2 dead, 9 wounded in Empire State Building shootings, police say

    New York (CNN) -- A disgruntled former apparel designer was killed Friday morning in a hail of police gunfire in front of the Empire State Building after he shot and killed a co-worker and engaged in a gunbattle with two officers, authorities said.
    At least nine others were wounded in the incident as the officers unloaded 14 rounds at the gunman, who apparently turned his weapon against them in one of Manhattan's busiest neighborhoods.
    The violence erupted just as visitors began to queue up to ascend the famous New York skyscraper.
    Police identified the shooter as 58-year-old Jeffrey Johnson, who was apparently laid off from his job as a designer of women's accessories at Hazan Import last year.

    So where do you get this was a "gun free" zone?

    Incidently, it seems most of those who were wounded were hit by police bullets.

    You honestly fucking believe that some dude who was set on killing a coworker with a gun is going to be stopped by an armed civilian? You think the armed civilian is going to get the jump on the surprise killer?

    Yeah okay.

    How else would an unarmed civilian stopped an armed person from killing them?

    Sorry, but if I have a hidden gun and I'm disgruntled, and I have a means to get to you... you will be dead. An armed civilian isn't going to be able to prevent an assassination like that.

    What, are you imagining in your fantasy land that a good Samaritan is going to stop somebody by pointing a gun at them, or preemptively shooting them BEFORE they have made their weapon and their intentions clear?
