at least there were no deaths. If the 10 year old girl isn't mentally traumatised, she can have a sticker saying 'I survived a shooting. 2013.'

Curious what sparked it though.

True, though the story is still developing.
I wonder what gun control advocates are going to say about this one...

T'would be ironic if they get what they want and then there is a shooting at the ensuing parade.

These parades are usually gun free zones. Wonder about this one.

Gang violence. Someone on the radio last night called in and said this kind of stuff happens a lot in New Orleans but is only making national news due to the fact that it was Mother's Day and the recent sensitivity to violence due to other violent events lately.

Wow, this is really sad, all those people who are against guns, do not start saying that the guns should be banned because of this incident. I don't see my guns walking out of my safe and going shooting people at randomly. If anybody sees that please video tape it and send me the link. I'd like to see it.

Hmm. If only we could run a background check on these people to see if they have mental health records when they purchase a gun...

Also, the "free phones" program was started by Reagan (on the premise that people would need a phone to get a job) and was expanded to cover cell phones by Bush. Problem?

Its really easy to tell who all the political hacks in here are when they started to denounce gun control before a single person even mentioned it....

Implying I have a problem with this

Also, the "free phones" program was started by Reagan (on the premise that people would need a phone to get a job) and was expanded to cover cell phones by Bush. Problem?

I still dislike it, I am not a fan of Reagan at all. I also despise Bush.

Nice job being defensive there kiddo.

That's something that stuck out to me.

I'm not sure about "gang" violence, but a vast majority of black-on-black homicides in low income neighborhoods come from those who are in the same social circle as other gunshot victims/perpetrators, so it's suggestive.

Even if the individual is in a gang, we can't assume this is "gang-motivated" instead of one guy blasting a rival who screwed his girlfriend.

Worst of all, it is possible that this was an entirely random targeted shooting. Drive bys and violence have been a very disturbing coping mechanism for some individuals with troubled backgrounds.

I recall one gang member who was trying to explain to a camera why he thought drive bys could be justified "because you could let off steam."
