News Corp.’s head-honcho Rupert Murdoch weighed in on ex-con William Spengler “ambush-style” shooting of four firefighters, two dead, in Webster, New York, saying we must “wake up.” He has been repeatedly calling for stricter gun control in the aftermath of the Aurora movie theater shooting, the Sikh temple shooting in Wisconsin, and the Newtown school shooting. William Spengler used a Bushmaster assault rifle, the same type of weapon used by Adam Lanza, in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, CT. He also had a Mossman 12-gauge shotgun and a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver in his possession.
NY Xmas ruined by lunatic shooting 4 firemen,killing two. Shooter killed before, jailed, later released on medical grounds. Must wake up.
