NY Daily News ^ | 7/23/12 | EDGAR SANDOVAL AND JOE KEMP

Posted on 07/23/2012 6:32:53 AM PDT by jimbo123

A 4-year-old boy died after he took a bullet in the head during a wild shootout on a Bronx basketball court Sunday night, cops and witnesses said.

Two men were also wounded in the gunfire that erupted during a hoops tournament at an E. 165th St. court in Morrisania about 9:40 p.m., police said.

-snip-

The crowd of people had been watching the “First Annual Ghetto Angels Basketball Tournament” at the court in the Forrest Houses.

The game was part of an annual memorial for a 15-year-old girl that was stabbed to death one year ago, housing residents said.

B-b-b-but guns are BANNED in New Yawk!!!

Hey, Mayor Bloomingidiot, how can this happen? How much more gun control can you implement to make this stop?

Hey, I’ve got a NEW idea for ya.

How about CRIME control. That’s right.

SWIFTLY execute murderers, like the creep that killed this little boy, and crack down on the gangstas. Make their lives as difficult as possible. Sic the IRS on them.

Hey, here’s an idea, DEPORT ILLEGALS.

You need to address crimes like these at the SOURCE.

"Bloomberg = Dinkins 2.0"

Not quite. Bloomie hasn't forgotten EVERYTHING he ever learned about business, at least not yet.

The NEXT New York City mayor ("player to be named later") = Dinkins-squared.

Four years of anarchy and THEN Giuliani 2.0.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Broken culture. They need to change themselves. But they will probbaly just blame Whitey instead.

I guess the two shooters were unaware that posession of a handgun is illegal in NYC. It’s the only possible conclusion unless you believe that criminals don’t actually obey laws but that’s just crazy talk.

Isn’t it amazing how Doomberg makes a big political Gun Control plea, as he did after Aurora, and within days he is shown to be such a fool with how well the gun control laws are working in his own city??

They didn’t wait until midnight to play. If they had, this would not have occurred.

The libs already have a propaganda talking point to cover this: federal gun control.

That's the whole point of the UN treaty, to get us on the road to full federal gun control, with federal swat teams breaking into any residence suspected of harboring gun owners.

Packing while playing hoops.

...Another witness said the shooter, a man known as Spidey, started shooting at someone playing basketball. The basketball player shot back, hitting the child, identified early Monday morning as Lloyd Morgan....

You’re right, it doesn’t work, period.

But the bigger issue is: the US Constitution.

What does it say? We have the right to own guns.

What does it mean? We have the right to own guns.

All the rest is BS.

If the libs want to try to change the constitution, then I welcome them to give it a try. I’m fully confident such an effort will fail.

Until then, let’s start giving long prison sentences to any politician attempting to violate our constitutional rights.

What the hell was a 4 year old doing at a getto basketball tourney at near 10:00 PM? Seems the street rats come out after dark and this time they brought an innocent child along with them. (Yes I know it is not quite “dark” at 10:oo PM but the time of night is).

There was a tragic case about a week ago of a little girl (8?) who was running a lemonade stand with her mother and the little girl was shot in the head when a drive-by happened.

It was just before midnight.

I have no idea why someone would help their child set up a lemonade stand in the middle of the night.

> But the bigger issue is: the US Constitution.

Ah, but the Left claims that the US Constitution is a “Living Document”, subject to “interpretation” for the “times we live in”.

For example, they say the Founding Fathers could never have imagined things like repeating arms and autoloaders.

I submit that the Left’s definition of the Constitution as a “Living Document” is just Newspeak for “Dead Letter”.

They will interpret it any way they please and shove it down our throats.

They have all of Academia and all the Main Stream Media, and all of Big Entertainment on their side.

However, if we will turn back to God, and submit ourselves to Him, the gates of HELL cannot prevail against us!

We need a REVIVAL among the Christians in this nation. We need a GREAT AWAKENING among the unbelievers.

With God on our side, we are a majority!

Consider Gideon, Barak, Samson.

Our FAITH is what makes us strong!

I bet there was not a properly legal regulated gun in the mix. It kinda makes a person think gun control is a farce. It is so tragic when a child dies but the problem runs deeper then any law can address.

Bloomie will argue that the reason there are guns in NYC despite strict gun control is because guns are readily and legally available in places like Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, etc. THat's why he wants to prevent the sale of firearms to any person in every state.

I wonder what he is going do to stop "thugs" from smuggling supersized soft drinks into the NYC.

We can’t say that in this day and age.

But for a fact things haven’t changed much in the ghetto. Blacks are still their own worst enemy.

Aborting their children, spreading aids,violent acts upon each other,70% born out of wedlock,generations of welfare families. They cannot blame these things on anyone but themselves, but they try real hard.
