"And the NRA says the "answer to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun". These are trained officers, just think how much worse it would be with a bunch of cowboys shooting at whoever and whatever they want." Nothing would have happened. Private citizens with CCW licenses are hesitant to ever pull their weapon due to legal repercussions, whereas police officers have far less risk. Police can shoot unarmed people and get away with it.

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.
