Empire State Shooting Claims 2 Lives, Leaving 8 Wounded
Two people were killed and at least eight wounded in a shooting outside the Empire State Building on Friday, a New York police source said, creating chaos and shocking tourists and commuters who witnessed the bloody scene outside the landmark tourist attraction.
This comes on the heels of the Sikh temple shooting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 5th and the Dark Knight Rises shooting in Aurora, Colorado on July 21st.
With the frequency of these shootings amidst the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty, one can only wonder the ramifications if any for the 2nd Amendment. At the very least this may give an impetus towards stricter gun control laws for the U.S. .
Information coming from New York City Law Enforcement officials on the scene say there are no terrorist links to this shooting.
