    CNN & MSNBC opt to talk about gun control and Trump rather than cover the story. Sad

    The difference between Fox coverage and CNN coverage is amazing. Fox is actually covering the story.

    Wonder if CNN realizes this is drug related. My guess is the shooters are not legal gun owners.

      Was at the gym. MSNBC and Fox were on side by side. Fox was covering the story. MSNBC was crowing to each other about a bad stock market day. Took them 15 minutes to get to the shooting. Cops getting shot doesnt fit the narrative.

      I couldn't believe 5 minutes into the report CNN and Wolf Blitzer were already on the gun control kick. I still say this was a drug bust gone bad. The bad guys are probably not legal gun owners.

        Libs want to take guns from law abiding citizens. But a drug runner in philly has shot 6 cops, and apparently is still shooting. And I would imagine he went through all the correct background checks and abides by current gun laws....ha what a joke

          Holy cow, they might have the entire states police forces on scene there.
          Crazy.

            i'm for this and I'm against that, but for flux sake, how can a cop-squad go into something like this not planning for the worst. They are dealing with the worst violent criminals. Well, fake news should certainly say "no way were these pigs wanting just to kill suspects."

            This situation was not evaluated from the >"above all else, protect our own," angle. In the police car trunks 4' wide folding bullet proof shields, on rollers. Should have sent a SWAT team in originally. What was overlooked? Once under suspicion that place should have been under surveillance for when one goes out for food, for haircut, for drug delivery or pickup. Each or all came out at various times.Their enclave obviously was the worst confrontation spot.

            That is probably the most crime ridden slum neighborhood in Philly. The issue here isn't gun control. It is crime, drugs and gang thuggery.

              The poll numbers show the people want some gun sense legislation. Anyone want to bet Trump backs it...what's more important to trump...suburban indy votes ot alt rightys?

                  Nobody's arguing with you here but this is in no way a gun control incident....it is a drug and crime incident. To paint it any other way is dishonest. Hope when the full story comes out the Democrats who have already tweeted gun control crap about this incident are called out on politicizing it.

                    In a vacuum...sure but the truth of the matter is that the conversation has been ongoing and a flash point that crosses party lines. Expect trump to take advantage of it.

                      Several democrat candidates have already tried to take advantage of it...it might bite them in the ass as their stunts usually do.

                      Is it your contention only Democrats are politicizing it? No way you're that obtuse.

                      Hint: post #4

                          I'm not talking about GatorChatter posters politicizing it I am talking politicians like Kamala Harris and Castro politicizing it from the second the news came out with the help of CNN & MSNBC.

                            So this shooter passed the background check using his rap sheet ?

                            Was it a white nationalist - they're everywhere ?
