    Two dead (inc. the shooter), eight wounded.

    Seems to have started with a workplace dispute, then became a random shooting.

    Tell that to the family of the guy who was shot in the head.

    Yeah, quite. Two of my best friends are over in NY sightseeing this week, they arrived yesterday. I had a total paranoia attack (especially before more details emerged about victims) that they might have headed off bright and early to the Empire State Building, but I got in touch with them quickly and they were nowhere nearby.

    Don't know the guy's name yet or family status, but it looks like a 53-year-old guy fired on Thursday stalked and then shot his 41-year-old boss in the head before being gunned down by police. Some of the wounded might have been hurt by police fire.

    Shouldnt need to, although I take your point, perhaps if more families exercised greater sway with individuals there would be less loose cannons.

    These shootings create panic and result in Americans buying more guns out of fear. Mass shootings have been happening a lot lately but they will only increase gun sales.
