ANOTHER Mass Shooting. What's the Answer?
A gunman opened fire this morning near the Empire State Building, the latest in this summer's gun carnage. What do you think the response should be?
Yet another one.
In the most recent mass shooting this morning, police say a gunman opened fire just outside the Empire State Building in New York City just after 9 a.m.
Sources told the New York Daily News a dispute erupted between co-workers at a business in the Empire State Building. They say the shooter casually walked away from the scene; witnesses pointed him out to the police and he was then shot dead by police.
Earlier this month, a lone gunman — an Army veteran and labeled as a white supremacist — allegedly opened fire and killed six people and wounded three others at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. He also was shot and killed by police. Possible involvement by others is still being investigated.
Last month, a lone gunman opened fire in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during opening night of the much-anticipated release of The Dark Knight Rises, killing 12 and injuring many others.
American mass shootings seem to have reached unimaginable proportions. What's the solution? Do you think there should be stricter control of guns or should more citizens arm themselves? Tell us in the comments section below.
