[So, when you hear people argue that "the cops are the only people who should have guns," think again.] Actually, I was thinking that what that situation really could have used was 2 or 3 more private citizens armed taking it upon themselves to stop the guy so they could add more bullets to the mix and confuse the NYPD officers efforts to identify the bad gunman as opposed to the good gunmen.

Maybe they could wear bright hats with a helpful slogan like: "Totally not a bad guy."

As the gun control debate rages on with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg leading the way, a woman in North Carolina is suing the New York City Police Department after they shot her and nine other people two months ago while trying to take out a single person near the Empire State Building.

A North Carolina college student hit by police gunfire during a shooting outside the Empire State Building argued in a lawsuit Tuesday that the police department and the officers involved need better training to deal with such confrontations in the future.
