    The NYPD shot 9 bystanders trying to take down a shooter when there was a murder by the Empire State Building earlier this year. That's what happens.

      comment. Sounds like maybe the NYPD was trying to do its job -- but even if they were, what it tells us is that no matter how much training and how comfortable someone might be with firearms, shots aimed at the original shooter are just as likely to hurt innocent bystanders.
      There's this ridiculous image the pro-gun folks have of how they would pull their gun out and cleanly "take out" the shooter attempting to kill masses of people. I've never seen or heard anything like that actually happen except on TV.
