Yesterday’s NFAC (the Not [email protected] Around Coalition)/BLM march and demonstration in Louisville featured a negligent discharge by one of the armed participants. The stray round was touched off as the group assembled in a local park before marching in support of Justice for Breonna Taylor.
According to LMPD, three victims were sent to the hospital as a result of a discharge from a member of the NFAC demonstration.
All of the members…involved are affiliated with the NFAC and there no outstanding suspects, police say.
In a statement, LMPD interim chief Robert Schroeder said, “This is a tragic situation that could have been much worse. I encourage anyone choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights to do so responsibly.”
Well, yes. That begins with the four rules of gun safety, something the NFACers would have done well to emphasize to everyone before they assemble. In case they need a refresher:
Watch the video above. Many in the crowd seem to have taken muzzle discipline lessons from the McCloskeys.
BREAKING: We just watched two people be taken onto stretchers at Baxter square on 12th and Jefferson. Metro safe has confirmed reports of shootings & that there are multiple victims. We heard the noises when people scattered to get behind cars, & to take a knee @WHAS11 #nightteam pic.twitter.com/h5AsPWlLbi
