A suspect with what CNN describes  as a “large gun” was killed by police after he apparently shot ten people outside New York City’s Empire State Building this morning. Witnesses described the weapon as a “sawed-off shotgun.”
Police say the shooting is not terror related. “The Post said the shooting stemmed from a dispute between co-workers. The paper’s Web site said it was unclear what sparked the deadly argument,” according to the Washington Post .
New York’s mayor Michael Bloomberg will undoubtedly exploit the tragedy and call for further restrictions on the Second Amendment.
Government gun-grabbers will once again emerge from the woodwork and call for outlawing firearms as details of the murder swirl around a sensationalism hungry establishment media still salivating over the Sikh temple and Colorado theater murders.
