Sounds like an episode of CSI, right? Thousands of people dressed up as Zombies partying in downtown Fort Myers, Florida. Shots ring out. Most people assume it’s some kind of entertainment. When the crowds learn it isn’t, when they realize that real people have been shot by a real gun, they panic, assuming that someone very odd has taken the zombie thing a little too seriously. The cops evacuate downtown. nypost.com reports that last night’s shooting during ZombieCon left one man dead and four others injured. The killer is still at large. What most of the mainstream media missed is that . . .
last night’s shooting follows another recent shooting in downtown Fort Myers. Which is no surprise to anyone familiar with the city’s gang scene. There were 25 gang-related, firearms-related homicides last year, as highlighted in the news report above. What’s the bet the anti-gunners will focus on the gun rather than the gangs?
