FL: Shootout in Miami Beach (South Beach).

Details still coming in, reported victim is a NYPD detective, critically wounded. No status given for the other gunfighters (injuries, nature of interaction, etc).

The article says, "traded shots", so it seems he was armed.

I echo the prayers for a speedy recovery for the NYPD detective.

But on a more macro level here's where I have a problem with this story.

Rant mode on -

Obviously LEOs can carry pretty much anywhere anytime in the US. Law abiding citzens of any state also have the means to be able legally carry in states like Florida, etc by following the rules. Now just imagine some poor Florida resident is vacationing in New York on the detective's home turf. Since he's a law abiding person he leaves his carry weapon (for which he has a Florida permit) at home because non residents are not allowed to even have a firearm in their possession in New York let alone carry. We don't know the details of the incident, but the detective was on vacation, so presumably this could happen anywhere, even in New York where firearms are banned for non residents. Not saying people NEED to carry every time they go on vacation, but it's nice to have the legal option.

Rant mode off -

Again prayers for a speedy recovery for one of New York's finest.
