NY officers killed by guns

Two police officers are gunned down in New York City, and everyone is searching for meaning in these two senseless deaths; talking about everything but the obvious — the elephant in the room — it’s the guns, stupid!

Two police officers who had spent years in a hazardous profession and survived. They both would still be alive if someone had just punched them out.

No, bullets fired from guns led to their deaths. Otherwise, they would be home spending the Christmas holidays with family and friends.
