MAIG Silent on New Orleans Mother’s Day Parade Shooter

Yesterday, TTAG published a post on the Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ exploitation of a Mother’s Day parade shooting in New Orleans. Despite MAIG’s bloody shirt waving it seemed clear that the shooter or shooters were, as they say, “known to the police.” Or, as we say, vicious criminals who should have been locked-up. “Asked whether the parade shooting was gang-related, officials said they were still investigating,” cnn.com reports. “It’s too preliminary to tell,” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu told the news net. Oh really? “Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas said that authorities are looking for 19-year-old Akein Scott [who] was arrested in March and may be out on bond . . . Scott has been arrested in the past for possession of a firearm, resisting arrest and narcotics charges, among other charges.” TTAG’s emailed MAIG’s main man McCarthy for a clarification of their position. Be advised not to hold your breath.
