From the NY Post:
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn gave it her best shot.
She was one of 15 legislators who learned firsthand yesterday what it's like to shoot a weapon and be a cop on the street -- after being invited by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to the NYPD firing range in The Bronx.
Kelly and his officers schooled the council members on using guns in simulated crime situations designed to give the lawmakers a better understanding of what cops face. He had invited all 51 members shortly after The Post reported that a bill had been introduced in Albany requiring cops to shoot to wound, not kill.
The bill, drafted in the wake of Sean Bell's controversial police-shooting death, infuriated cops. It would force officers to use their weapons "with the intent to stop, rather than kill" a suspect. They would be mandated to "shoot a suspect in the arm or the leg."
Under present NYPD training, cops are taught to shoot at the center of their target and fire their weapon until the threat has been stopped.
Quinn (D-Manhattan) shot a Glock and a Smith & Wesson at a 10-yard range.
"On my first one, I got two in the shoulder and two center mass," Quinn bragged after obliterating her target.
And the best line from the article:
"I personally was killed today by a machete-wielding drunk holding a baby because I waited too long to shoot." - Peter Vallone, Jr.
