I have just heard that a crew of New Youk firemen attending a fire were shot at two were killed and two injured. What is the USA coming to!
May god help the fire men's families.

What does it take for the gun lobby to admit they're wrong?

Is this for real?

Another heartbreaking event - but we know the NRA's reaction - arm fireman

S**t it is for real. Just looked it up. The fire was arson and the firemen were volunteers. But it said it was unclear whether the killer was killed by the fire or was shot, so perhaps the fire brigade do have a defence force. Shamefull, but I fear Bluebell you're right.
