OK that is the title that I chose for this news. Somebody missed a chance to look at the strange combinations of their names.
I am not implying anything that has to do with religion so spare me the idiotic comments.
MAN SHOT BY ‘CRAIGSLIST’ GUN TAKES AIM AT SITE

A Manhattan boutique owner is suing craigslist.com for $10 million, claiming he was shot with a gun purchased on the popular Web site.
Calvin Gibson, 50, who was shot six times by his schizophrenic neighbor in the East Village on July 24, believes the classified site is partially responsible.
“But for defendant’s negligence in failing to supervise and monitor the content of the ads placed on its Internet service, [the shooter] could never have legally obtained the handgun,” according to the lawsuit filed yesterday in Manhattan federal court.
The alleged gunman, Jesus Ortiz, who is being held without bail, “has a psychiatric history and a history of violent crime,” Gibson claims in the suit, and could never have qualified for a gun permit.
“New York has an extremely stringent gun law,” the suit says.
He claims Ortiz told the cops that he bought the gun on craigslist, and that the suspect’s mother told others the same story.
Gibson was shot after he stopped at a deli on East Seventh Street near Avenue D. A teen, Mohammed Islam, 18, was also wounded in the random attack.
NYPD officials could not confirm the suit’s claim. A craigslist spokesman could not be reached.
