Looks like those gun laws are working - maybe some day they'll be as sucessful as DC and they can win the murder capital prize back.

I wonder if the NY Times version has it written that such crimes are all in anticipation of the AW ban sunsetting in ~60 days. :rolleyes:

And each of these people are sitting in their life hereafter wondering why the police didn't protect them like all of the city's officials said they would.

Oh well, better them then me ...... :uhoh:

At least they left the AWB out :rolleyes:

The nine slayings were remarkable because the city has been averaging about 1.5 homicides per day in 2004.

Got a chuckle out of that - they're not remarkable simply because of the large number of murders, but because their 1.5/day 'above average'.

Interesting. That's Rupert Murdoch's rag. He also owns the Fox TV channels (most notably Fox News).

Bloomberg on ABC news this morning: that's right you guessed it, with some of the tightest gun controls in the country there are still too many guns on the street and "there is no reason for anyone to have a gun."

Shocking what those evil guns can do all by themselves . . . .

"Interesting. That's Rupert Murdoch's rag. He also owns the Fox TV channels (most notably Fox News)."

Is there a point to the comment?

Or is this another "drive by" posting designed to cast some kind of shadow on Fox News and all other "rags" that Murdoch owns as somehow dishonest? As opposed to the upstanding and totally balanced NY Times with 47 front page stories on Abu Ghraib in 53 days using the same photos over 23 times.

No they don't have any agenda at the Times.

A newspaper runs a story on deaths in an area with obscene gun control measures in place. You know, another typical Liberal Democrat controlled metropolitan utopia with disarmed citizens, like my own home town of Chicago - Murder Captiol of the USA years after year. Yeah, we need more gun control here too.

I'm not sure what the owner of the paper has to do with that, other than embarassing the municipal government again by pointing out the obvious.

Do you feel that Murdoch personally has issued marching orders to keep all references to the AWB out of his papers? Good for him if he has, but I doubt it. Doesn't seem to be the micro managing type.

Now if you're looking for interesting conspiracy theories, here's one you'll love.

I must have missed your post on high profile Democrat Representative Danny Davis literally crowning the Rev. Sung Yung Moon and his wife as the emporers of this and future worlds at a Washington DC ceremony last week. (Honest people, I couldn't make stuff this funny up. Davis is now claiming that he had no idea what the event was. He might have figured it out when they handed him a pillow with two bejeweled crowns.

Murdoch and Moon must be evil, they own newspapers. Now if they owned Ketchup factories they'd be allright.

Then I suggest that Mayor Bloomberg(Rino-NY) Take the lead by getting rid of any armed security that he might have and come on down here with us "common folk"

He's made a big show in the past of taking mass transit.

During the day of course and I'm sure he is surrounded by 20 plain clothes cops.

Hey, its not his fault you can't afford your own security!

Can anyone tell me about a story from Long Island that I had briefly seen on a NY TV program ? The body of a man was found . He had been shot. He was dressed all in black .Police thought he was probably a thief who was shot as he tried to rob a home. IIRC it was in the Belmont or North Belmont area ??
