“New Orleans police say that a dozen people have been shot during a Mother’s Day second-line parade,” news.yahoo.com reports. “Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas told reporters at least 12 people were shot during the parade in the city’s 7th Ward.” What he didn’t say: whether or not the shooting was gang-related. What are the odds? “Serpas said that about 10 NOPD officers were spread out throughout the second line and that three people were seen running from the shooting scene . . .
Serpas said that the three suspects likely worked together and that at least two different weapons were used.”
“A week ago, police were also called out to investigate a triple shooting near the corner of Frenchman street,” rt.com adds.
Not like this sort of thing hasn’t happened before. And before that. The money shot (for the mainstream media): a 10-year-old child was amongst the victims. The exact number of casualties is unknown, or the whereabout of the shooters, or much else really.
Except that the gun grabbers will surely use this incident—and any other shooting save those by cops or the occasional armed citizen in self-defense—against those who defend their human, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
UPDATE: CNN says none of the wounds are life threatening.
