    Re: Shooting at the Empire State Building

    Didn't the NYPD have that shooting of a gang suspect on his front steps where they looked into it and they fired 55 bullets and landed like 6?

        Good news! I went all weekend without my guns killing me!
        Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

          ...and that is a good thing.

          A five second change of heart could alter things permanently in a way that nothing else could.

            I will have you know that the only things the Clash ever killed were their own careers, and eventually Joe Strummer.

            Okay, I really don't know what you were going for here.

            At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

              I guess I'll just have to hope that my guns don't have a change of heart then.

                    We do have a people problem, but it's exacerbated by the fact that problem people (who fall somewhere on the range from irresponsible to crazy) have such easy access to guns, whether through legal or illegal channels.

                    Edit to add: NY1 story on the funeral for the victim of the shooting. I like how the cameraman zeroes in (about 0:40 into the clip) on the one woman displaying excessive cleavage at the funeral.
