Yet another shooting..........this time someone opened fire outside the Empire State building - reporting at least 5-10 shot. Not really much info yet.
More fuel for the fire for this thread. It will never end. :mad:
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two people were killed and at least eight were wounded in a shooting outside the landmark Empire State Building in New York City on Friday, a New York police source said".
I guess the shooter wasn't aware that a pick-up truck is even more lethal.
I see nothing inappropriate about it. In fact, it is what I am thinking.
And especially as we have had a page or so of people joking about a death by coffee mug!
I just didn't find an implication to the OK City bombing, as a laughing matter. Must just be my stuffy old age speaking. The coffee mug references were just plain silly and it did lighten the "discussion" a bit too. Of course - JMHO.
ETA: My apology - and I stand corrected. A pick up truck was NOT used in the OK City bombing. So I guess the pick up truck reference was acceptable and funny afterall. :rolleyes:
My husband also worked for Ryder at the time. Shortly afterward he was on a plane wearing a shirt with the company logo on it. Another passenger lit into him...how could he wear that shirt! Yelling at him. Apparently being the employee of a company from which a terrorist rents a truck is shameful....:confused::confused::rolleyes:
I wish I had my gun with me out in the back yard with the dogs last night! Two big guys were in my neighbor across the streets back yard. Her husband was not home. Layla spotted them and started barking, they started running. Some quick calls and several neighbors shining spotlights and they came running back through, jumped in the back of a pick up truck and took off. The vehicle description was given to the city cop sitting in a parking lot three tenths of a mile up the road. That is a waste of time, we live in the township.:rolleyes:
Would I have chased them if I had my gun? No. What would I have done if they ran up to me? Whatever they want I suppose, seeing as I was unarmed.:( I wonder if they were selling Avon at 10:30 at night and figured since the husband wasn't home (his truck wasn't in the driveway) they'd go to the back door? If we wouldn't have scared them, would my dearest friend across the street not be alive today? Only if she couldn't get to her gun before they got upstairs to her room.
This is why I have a gun on my dresser. Seems I'm not very smart or it would have been in my hand out in the yard.
Opps! Don't you hate when that happens??
If the woman isn't charged, I can picture where this going. :eek:
