17 people shot, 10 arrests, and 9 guns recovered. Wow, that's some polite society!

Weird thing to celebrate, but ok. I guess if you guys used a scoreboard it would be too obvious.

I dunno what clock you mean when there were several shooters involved and nobody died.
That's just a Thursday afternoon.

What do you mean, 17 people were shot and nobody died?
*searches for other articles*
Oh. It was a Bucks-Celtics game. The Celtics ran roughshod over the Bucks to force a 7th game. I can understand why disgruntled Bucks would not only open fire, but also be unable to shoot effectively...

/Ha.

Police say they've arrested ten people in the case, recovering nine guns from the scene.


We're going to have to check in with the official scorer.   This seems less like a "mass shooting" and more "gunfight at the OK Corral" material

These urban youths are just celebrating their culture. Its not your place to judge!

"If we had a war, we could send all of these angry and mentally unstable people to the front line, and they could be shooting each other and the enemy.  It would bring a lot of stability to the situation back home.  It's too bad we don't have conscription anymore to help out with things like that."

Wisconsin really needs to employ armed teens from Illinois full time to keep their streets safe.

This is just a preview of what is to come. It is going to get a hell of a lot worse once the SC overturns Roe v. Wade, gay marriage, LGTBQ rights, and interracial marriage.

More of an egg timer at this point.
 
2022-05-14 10:25:03 AM  
Because we've stopped distinguishing between the kinds of shootings that the meme was invented for and larger-scale gang violence?
 
2022-05-14 10:26:02 AM  
Didn't we also just have an article about the courts or something allowing access to semi automatic fire arms to younger people? Really should just throw out the clock at this point since America is so good at shooting itself in the foot all the time while someone makes a profit off our suffering.

Hopefully they'll all lose their carry permits once the dust settles on this tragedy.

This is the consequence of a society obsessed with gun ownership. This will continue.

The whole thing about making something ubiquitous, and readily available to all is that it will also be available to "those people", who aren't respectable and good, like you and other people who look like you.

This is just run-of-the-mill "urban" crime and therefore the fault of the Democrats.
This shooting has nothing to do with guns.

A VCR without a CRT was pretty useless.

A shot clock speeds up the game?

We don't.
We never did.
Some jerk thought it was funny, and other jerks thought they could twist it to their own political advantage.
But it was never real, or a thing.

Yeah, more like mass shoot out

The mass shooting happened nearly two hours after three people were shot near MLK & Highland.

To be fair, it did happen near the "Deer district", so maybe they were just misguided hunters?

Funny thing about that.

MLK Drive in Milwaukee was once known as 3rd Street. When MLK Drive was originally created, the city fathers refused to rename the section of 3rd through downtown, including the area where this happened.

It was just in January of this year that the city finally finished the job and renamed the portion of the street crossing Highland from 3rd Street to MLK Drive.

But the guns, are they OK?

knobmaker: Private_Citizen: 17 people shot, 10 arrests, and 9 guns recovered. Wow, that's some polite society!

Okay, but no one died.  Clearly, firearms instruction is not up to par in Milwaukee.


The rule of thumb for shootings is when illegal guns are involved, the ratio of dead people to shots fired is low.

When legal guns are involved, there is usually a higher ratio of dead people to shots fired.

You can watch for this in future stories to see if I'm right.
 
2022-05-14 11:10:18 AM  
 10 people involved, no real precision in the shots, very little scoring...   It sure sounds like the Bucks / Celtics game :P

/jk
 
2022-05-14 11:15:50 AM  
10 people with 9 guns? This isn't a mass shooting it's gang related. Trust me if you had organized 9 people all trying to do a random mass shooting the casualties would be a much much higher number.

They were just trying to spend a few bucks.

I, too wanted to make a Celtics/Bucks joke.
