    I think it says somewhere in the bible that if you are hungry and come across a nest of birds eat some chicklings or eggs and let the mother live. So after all the emotionalism you might have some sorta point.

    Clearly, if Obama had gotten his way on gun control and sequester, none of this would have happened.

    The idiosyncratic local tradition has sometimes stirred debate in the city after shootings marred previous events.
    So - it's happened before in N.O.

    It's sad - pathetic, really. Not a surprise, and thankfully no one was killed.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I am thinking that is wonderful that no one died, but sadly for progressives this won't be tragic enough to renew the rush to take legal guns away....

    My guess is that this was not a registered, legal gun owner.....

    After Katrina I was a lone voice saying "why rebuild that cess pool of humanity, give it back to the gators", I stand by that position.

    The shootings were attributed to "street violence"...which means its best to just ignore it and wait for a better tragedy to exploit. Nothing to see here...time to move on to the next incident.

    We probably won't have to wait very long... ...you can't swing a dead cat these days without hitting a psychopath with a gun.

    It cant be just any psychopath...it has to be one they can exploit adequately. Sure...theres plenty of shootings...beatings...stabbings...just not ones with the right color of victim perpetrated by the right race of perpetrator.
