What a shitty article. It doesnt even mention WHY there was a shootout. Seems like they asked people questions and took quotes.
I wouldn't put it past them, but I have pretty reflective hair as well...
I had that same thought...
A bunch of false flag shootings paid for by George Soros and his Trans-Nationalist gun banning pal Rebbecca Peterson.
They could also be "manchurian candidates" who the government has brainwashed into serving their will without even realizing it.
Or tough economic times can lead people to do crazy things. Personally I think the latter is more likely and makes the lot of us gun owners sound less kookoopants but ymmv.
WHAT IN THE FUCKING FUCK
People have done gone crazy it seems.
We need more people CCing more than ever now.
I've made the decision to carry everywhere there isn't a metal detector. Fuck a gun-free zone. A gun-free zone is a me-free zone.
The past few months should show you that you should be carrying everywhere possible, that concealed means concealed when you need to
Him fearing a gun ban is a complete non issue. Who gives a shit, the guy's a worthless fuck. He's not one of us.
they are doing everything possible to make those nuts "normal" gun owners
he feared his rights would be infringed so he fired hundreds, just hundreds of rounds at police, possibly with his high-powered .357 Magnum revolver.
wow he immediately shot 2 of them in the head, killing them instantly when they walked up to his door.
Makes me want to CCW illegally just for my own safety
I hate the media and their reporting on this shit. It is like the pick and choose stuff to make guns and the people who own them as horrible even things that need to be removed from society.
Tom Moffitt, 51, a city firefighter who lives two blocks away, said he heard about the shooting on his scanner and came to the scene, where he heard "hundreds, just hundreds of shots. And not just once — several times."
That guy is a fucking moron. He just gave Obama and the liberals more power for their cause than they had before. Way to go dead dude.
Who the hell would listen to a scanner when off duty? Guy sounds like a tool
How do you hear hundreds and hundreds of shots not once but twice!
Yeah that guy is a tard
well its not like they just started doing it.
i do appreciate they dont try and conceal thier motives, they are painfully vulgar.
They guy had an AK, was wearing body armor, and shot the first two officers in the head as they approached the door. It was a planned ambush that can't be prevented from happening. Its a shame, but its a fact of life. It was estimated that he fired approx 100 rds at officers though. The first two were shot in the head at the door, the third was on his way home from duty, heard the call and went there, was shot and killed trying to render aid to the first two. The suspect then retreated to his upstairs window and began taking potshots at officers. He later surrendered like a fucking bitch. I wish they had put two bullets in his head.
Taliban Chief Claims Responsibility for N.Y. Shooting Massacre
April 3: Authorities stand watch at the scene of a shooting in Binghamton, N.Y. that left at 14 people, including the gunman, dead.
A Pakistani Taliban militant leader has claimed responsibility for the attack on a U.S. immigration center in New York state in which 13 people were killed, Reuters reported.
"I accept responsibility. They were my men. I gave them orders in reaction to U.S. drone attacks," Baituallah Mehsud told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location on Saturday.
U.S. officials were not immediately available for comment about Mehsud's claim, Reuters reported, and one Pakistani security analyst dismissed the claim as a publicity stunt.
Representative Maurice Hinchey, whose district includes Binghamton, told the New York Times that indications are the gunman was an immigrant from Vietnam.
Mehsud's claim comes as a suspected U.S. drone fired two missiles at an alleged militant hide-out Saturday in northwestern Pakistan, killing 13 people.
The U.S. is suspected of carrying out more than three dozen such strikes over the past year in Pakistan near the Afghan border, where militants often launch attacks against U.S. and NATO troops. The drone attacks have caused tension with the Pakistani government, which frequently complains about the U.S. carrying out strikes on its territory.
President Barack Obama has said he will step up the pressure on Pakistan to crack down on militants in its territory by making aid to the country conditional on the government's anti-terrorism efforts. Pakistan has said it is committed to the fight, but many Western officials suspect the country's military intelligence agency of maintaining links with militant groups.
Obama said last month the U.S. would insist that action be taken "one way or another" when the country has intelligence about high-level terrorist targets in Pakistan, a likely reference to the drone strikes.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari defended his country's commitment to fighting Islamic militants in a speech marking the 30th anniversary of the execution of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, an influential former prime minister who was hanged by a military regime on charges widely seen as politically motivated.
"People around the world say that our country will disintegrate. Some say that fundamentalists will rule the country," Zardari told thousands of people who assembled early Saturday morning at the slain politician's tomb in southern Sindh province.
"But we will not let it happen as long as we are alive," said Zardari.
Bhutto was the father of Zardari's late wife Benazir Bhutto, a former prime minister who was assassinated by militants at the end of 2007, not long after returning to the country from exile to run in national elections. Pakistan and the U.S. have blamed Mehsud for Benazir Bhutto's death and scores of other attacks in Pakistan.
Earlier this week, Mehsud claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on a police academy in the eastern city of Lahore that left at least 12 people dead, including seven policeman. He warned that his group would carry out more attacks in the country unless the U.S. stopped drone attacks against militants on the Afghan border.
The militant leader also threatened to attack the White House, although the FBI said he had made similar threats previously and there was no indication of anything imminent. The U.S. has offered a reward of up to $5 million for Mehsud.
Soon after Mehsud made his threat, a suspected U.S. drone fired two missiles Wednesday at the alleged hide-out of one of his commanders, killing 14 people, intelligence and local officials said.
