Barney Fife shoots agian!

A great number of the Gun Control advocates have repetitively stated that civilians can not be trusted to handle firearms. If the citizens can not e trusted with arms, then who can be? Their response is usually The Police.
Sunday morning in Harlem the Police showing that astounding ability to properly use their arms, by firing 46 rounds, one round hitting one officer and 20+ hitting one other civilian.

Apparently two hundred people were at Lenox Avenue and 144th Street for a block party. At one point, police say, police fired at Angel Alverez, who allegedly fatally shot Luis Soto. According to WABC 7, “At this point, the 23-year-old Alvarez is not in police custody and has not been charged with anything. But that could change as investigators take a closer look at what happened.” Some experts expect him to live, since the 20+ gunshots didn’t hit any major organs, but his relatives don’t believe he could have killed Soto and say the gun recovered at the scene wasn’t his. His sister said, “If he was in a situation where he had to defend himself, he would use his hands first.”

Wow, 20 rounds and never hit a major organ? Talk about piss poor shooting.

I have to wonder where the other 26 rounds went to?

Police sources told the Daily News, “And because of [three bystanders being shot], and the number of shots, this is going to be a shooting where the tactics are taken a hard look at,” and “It’s justified, but messy.” And Mayor Bloomberg said, “Two police officers shot, fortunately not seriously. [The other police officer suffered a graze wound to the hand.] But there but for the grace of God it could have been much worse. And in terms of our abilities to protect ourselves, to be safe on our streets, we’ve just got to do something about all these guns—the guns that keep flooding into our cities.”

Very messy, i’m just glad that those other 26 rounds did not hit another civilian.
In this incident the most dangerous firearms, were the ones in the hands of the “professional” Police officers.
Of course, the responses from Bloomberg, are typical of him. He is just another anti-gun asshat.

On the other side of the coin, citizens with a shitass load of arms, have a nice fun day, and no one gets shot.
