    Rogucki twins cry for slain mom as gun industry continues to recklessly pursue profits

    Since the shooting, the 2-year-old Rogucki twins have awakened each morning crying out for their murdered mother.

    "They wake up ... saying, 'Mommy!'" their 19-year-old brother, Lorenzo Rogucki, reported.

    "I hear them screaming my mother's name."

    The twins were still sleeping at 10:30 a.m. Monday and not a sound came from the family's first-floor apartment in Coney Island as I spoke outside with the oldest of Victoria Rogucki's seven children.

    "They know, but they don't know know," Lorenzo said of the twins. "They know their mother is not there in the morning."

    To the right of the door stood a big floral display that his 9-year-old brother's Little League team sent to their mother's funeral on Friday. Abie Rogucki is a star pitcher.

    "He hasn't been going to a lot of games lately," Lorenzo said. "My mother used to take him to all the baseball games. She came home, she knew how many strikes he had, how many hits he had."

    Lorenzo paused.

    "She was a mom. A real mother."

    He looked across the small courtyard to where she had fallen after being struck by two of a flurry of bullets on June 9.

    "My mom was right there," he said. "I was like 'Mom!'"

    Lorenzo told me he got into a fight earlier in the day and his vanquished opponent had returned for a rematch.

    His mother had come out to see what was causing all the commotion as one of the opponent's friends, identified by police as 29-year-old Isa Johnson, pulled a gun and started firing.

    In an added twist, police say the others who had guns included the murdered woman's 17-year-old son, Ishmel Rogucki. He has been in custody since the night of the shooting and missed his mother's funeral. The grand jury's finding is pending.

    "I just wish it was a dream," Lorenzo said.

    He went back into the apartment. The twins, Jordan and Jayden, would soon be waking.

    I gazed down to where the mother's lifeblood had seeped onto the pavement, and then across Surf Ave., to the Boardwalk, the beach and the water.

    The seashore these days brings thoughts of the big oil spill down South, whose root cause is corporate greed, a reckless disregard for the welfare of others for the sake of making a few more dollars.

    Corporate greed is also a major factor in the continuing blood spill at shootings across the country, too many here in New York. The leading voice against effective gun control is the NRA, which is a tool of the gun industry.

    The primary goal of the gun industry is the same as that of the oil industry: to make money. The NRA's primary goal is to protect the gun industry's profits, however much blood is spilled.

    And what profits they are!

    One high-end manufacturer, Glock, revealed in a 1994 patent lawsuit that it rakes in 68% profit on each weapon.

    BP had a net profit margin before the oil spill of 8.32%.

    Google reports only 25%.

    Meanwhile, the Rogucki twins cry out each morning.

    "Mommy!"

    Just the moronic press spreading lies and BS. Since they have the right to say what they want, unless we can find a way to counter it, they will continue. Hopefully, they will soon go out of buisness do to poor readership and poorer reporting.

    Guns didn't do this. Criminals with guns that's who did this. The blame is in the wrong place here. IMO.

    Sounds like her kid was a gangbanger,they came looking for revenge so his actions caused her death,but that would be too harsh to imply

    gun manufacturers sell guns to make money. NRA makes money by supporting them. average every day people make money by working hard and investing. criminals are poor and obtain guns and rob people to make money.... sounds like the problem here is money... lets oulaw money... this is the logic these idiots have.

    Same old rhetoric. Point the blame in the wrong direction as usual. Why not put it where it belongs, on the gangbangers.

    So by their reckoning guns should be cheaper? a 68% profit margin is just too high...

    Ah, the NYDN. Never met a blatant lie they didn't like...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Not to thread hijack, but are they saying that an 8.32 % profit is obscene?

    I don't agree with the story. I feel sorry for the Mom. I don't feel sorry for the son with the gun, and feel he is the main reason his Mom is dead!

    However, I wouldn't mind seeing about a 50% drop in gun prices. I'd have about twice as many guns as I have now.

    Criminal shoots mother. Glock to blame.

    O'Donnell hits 400 lbs. General Mills and Onida spoons to blame.

    Bob unhappy with the Rabid Glowing Green paint job he's done on his house. Sherwin-Williams to blame.

    Drunk idiot strafes sidewalk full of nuns. Buick to blame.

    Political hack allowed to claim anyone's to blame but the criminal in question, with the legal claim lasting more than 30 seconds in court. Nobody to blame but ourselves.
