    To the Killer: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are. SpaceX gonna give it to ya.

    this is really horrible
    some 20 yrs ago i used to live in california , where guns were legal with permits, i do not recall any news for the almost 3 yrs i spent there about so many gun shots as one could read in the news, here in nyc, where, presumably, guns are illegal. its strange.

    1. The Facts says:

      Guns are legal in New York but licenses and permits are required for lawful ownership.
