2 firefighters shot, killed while battling New York blaze - CNN.com

(CNN) -- At least two firefighters died when they were shot at the scene of a blaze in upstate New York on Monday, police said.

Two other firefighters were injured, police in Webster, New York, told reporters.

Authorities believe one or more shooters took aim at the firefighters after they left their vehicles, Police Chief Gerald Pickering said.

It was unclear whether there were any suspects.

"We have different individuals that were possible people with knowledge, but at this point I can't really comment," Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn told reporters.

For hours, the gunfire stopped firefighters from working to extinguish the fire and forced police SWAT teams to evacuate homes in the area.

NRA Response:
Put an armed good guy with every firefighter truck going on a call:cool:
The NRA should "pre-shoot" the guy who set the 'trap' to lure the firefighters to the fire.

Webster, N.Y., the police chief said. .. “It does appear that it was a trap that was set,” Chief Pickering said of the blaze that drew the firefighters. “Causative reasons, we don't have at this time.”

NRA said that if he didn't have a gun he would have killed the firefighters with his bare hands anyway.

Here in VA a concealed carry permit holder can, as long as they don't drink alcohol.

I'm the armed good guy here on the corner I live.
I am much more concerned, due to the amount of guns sold since President Obama took office, about the chuckle-heads who fancy themselves "the armed good guy."


Who or how are they monitored for not drinking alcohol?

Wasn't Zimmerman an "armed good guy" too?

I am starting a new thread called shooting gallery. The purpose of the thread is to keep recording gun incidents and deaths in the US reported on the news. Please contribute if you see an incident worth posting. Please post only new gun related incidents in the US. It should be an interesting read a few months from now. I will start with this incident:

May I remind you this is an international site visited by international internationals throughout the world.

How dare you start a thread focused solely on the US and not invite international discourse.
