The New York Post reports a breaking story about a ”disgruntled worker [who] stalked a colleague down a Midtown street [in Manhattan], shot him dead and then turned his weapon on random pedestrians outside the Empire State Building — shooting as many as eight others before he was cut down by a cop on foot patrol.”

The Post also notes, “…just minutes before the mayhem, Mayor Bloomberg was warning about the dangers of ‘too many guns on the streets’ on his weekly radio show. ‘The argument guns don’t kill people, people kill people is one of the most disingenuous things you can say,’ he said shortrly [sic] before 9 a.m. [when the shooting happened] while discussing tougher guns [sic] laws being proposed in Albany. ‘It does take a person to pull the trigger, but if they didn’t have the gun… We are the only developed country in the world with this problem.’

Now, Nanny Bloomberg whines non-stop about his desire to steal civilians’ guns (strangely, he never worries about the huge arsenal the NYPD has stockpiled). So it’s a good bet that whenever a shooting occurs, Nanny will have bemoaned our ability to defend ourselves from his tyranny a few moments before. Still, how fortuitous for him and those “tougher gun laws” awaiting approval in Albany…
