Outrageous Muff: A shooting in New Orleans is a major crisis? It's a more a story when there isn't one.


Is there a minimum number that have to be shot  before it's news? Imena in genral, USA wide...

simrobert2001: Dang it people, can we NOT have a reason for the gun grabbers to grab guns for a week? Seriously, what the hell?


As longs as the perps are white and non-Muslim it'll be no big deal.

Outrageous Muff: Guns don't kill people. A poor mental health system, coupled with a weak background check system and bad socioeconomic forces kill people.


It's a way of life for some. They grow up like this and it's all they know.

Ranger Rover: iq_in_binary: Watch how fast it gets buried if it turns out to be gang related.

Will Fox, MSNBC and CNN be covering this in a few hours? Will there be non-stop coverage for the next 3 days?

I'm guessing no. Nobody cares unless it's white people.

Yeah, I'm normally not one to pull the race card out right away and even try to beat it down when other people bring it up in knee-jerk ways, but I have to say seeing the lily-white Sandy Hook choir sing at the Super Bowl made me wonder if anything similar ever possibly could have organized for the minority victims that die disproportionately of gun violence every day.

And yet people call me a racist for pointing that out.

Anyone know how this is Obama's fault yet?  Drudge Report is still quiet on this front.

Personally, I blame the victims for not moving out of the way of the bullets.  Probably looking to get a lawsuit going, if you ask me.

Now, in case y'alls clicker fingers are busted, it's a New Orleans tradition of following the brass band, often hosted by clubs and local orgs.  Similar to the jazz funeral, it's a glorious excuse to be funky.

super_grass: I hope the perps and victims are black.

Had they been any other race we would have gone in full-derp mode and tear ourselves apart with loud, obnoxious debates for weeks on end with nothing to show for it. If they were black it would be treated just like any other local crime, the perps won't get national attention, and the victims' families would be left to grieve in peace.

LordJiro: Shiat. Copycats of the Tsarnaev brothers? Or unrelated lunatics? Either way, hope they get caught damn quickly.


The only copycat thing it could be is that it's a mass gathering/reason . Bombs and guns are generally considered way different MO.
Just as likely to be a copycat of Sandy Hook as of the Tsarnevs.

And way to early to tell. People with a grudge, people who just like to hurt people, people with a cause etc.Lets not rush to judgement.

So what was used to shoot people in this incident? Because I'm willing to bet Browning didn't make it. Gangbangers typically don't use mid-range to high-end hunting rifles and shotguns to commit their crimes, and a Hi-Power is about twice the price of a glock.

Yes, clearly, the assault in NO was an attempt to steal the parade.

Or maybe some mothers.  Ooh, they could have been trying to hijack the brass section.

pyrotek85: I have a feeling it's a gang shooting, not that it makes it any better.


Yeah. When they have statements like "Three young men were seen fleeing the scene" it's probably not a Aurora or Newtown type deal. Looking at the photo's it certainly appears to be a pretty poor area which is also where you're going to find gang activity.

symptomoftheuniverse:
Thanks for the link. And btw, what's a second line?

...just on the total odd chance. 'Second line' is lingo for referring to the second line parade, which I would link to for a second time to underline the second line parade, but I am too farking lazy.

So for the second time, the second line is a phrase for the second line parade, which is a second parade after the first parade, during which there may be jazz and funkiness and such like.

/but, why male models?

That's gotta be it. That's probably why West Virginia has just as much gun violence as New Orleans and Chicago.

I know that.  But the likelihood it was an AR-15 is also slim.

You see... Brownie (Michael Brown) was head of FEMA during Katrina.... which was in New Orleans.... Brownie... Browning.... get it?

Nope. Every day there's a shooting somewhere, and the media is going to make sure everyone knows it's THE MOST HORRIBLE MASSACRE IN THE HISTORY OF FOREVER AND IT WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE NRA until we finally rescind the Second Amendment.

It probably doesn't help that a lot of us were around for the drug wars in the 80's and 90's. We may have been a bit desensitized to inner city gang violence.

Anything to keep the gun-grabber stupidity in check.

More people will be killed by alcohol this weekend but we have the luxury of not listening to the MADD neo-prohibitionists derp about bottle size restrictions and limits on liquor proofs. Now the gun-control people are repeating the same thing and we're all quite tired of them.
