Mothers Day Parade Shooting

Bystanders comfort a shooting victim while awaiting EMS at the intersection of Frenchmen and N. Villere Streets after authorities say gunfire injured at least a dozen people, including a child, at a Mother’s Day second-line parade in New Orleans on Sunday, May 12, 2013. No deaths were reported.

  • Another tragic example of a society run amock.

      This is nuts! What kind of crazy people would shoot up a Mother’s Day parade? Or a joyous Mother’s Day second line in New Orleans?

    Have a nice day!

    “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

    • Go back to bed until you have something new to say!!

        It’s Moron Maddy! How are you Moron Maddy? Guess you don’t like to have your messiah’s rancid hypocrisy thrown in your face, do you?

        Here’s more of it for your enjoyment.

        Have a nice day!

        “The gun control crusade today is like the Prohibition crusade 100 years ago. It is a shared zealotry that binds the self-righteous know-it-alls in a warm fellowship of those who see themselves as fighting on the side of the angels against the forces of evil. It is a lofty role that they are not about to give up for anything so mundane as facts – or even the lives of other people.” – Thomas Sowell, Guns Save Lives 4/3/13

          Sigh. Another one who thinks that reposting is a substitute for wit.

            Hey, it’s the best he can do.

        • RobertCHastings

          It’s good old omgmg. How ya’ doin’, moron?

    • johninPCFL

      Good words. Of course, his “free people” didn’t include blacks or women, and he argued vehemently against having a standing army. So his “free people” would need their weapons to defend themselves against slave uprisings and foreign invasions because there was no other protection. Sure glad that is EXACTLY THE SAME TODAY, right?

      • ObozoMustGo

        Couldn’t agree with you more. While the founders were by no means perfect, their ideals of individual sovereignty, freedom, and liberty were most certain lofty goals that took about 70 years plus to be recognized for blacks, and even longer functionally because of the DemonRAT party blocking equal rights for blacks at every turn. Thank God for Abe Lincoln and the Republican Party.

        Have a nice day!

        “The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” -Samuel Adams

          Certainly true until 1968 when the klan and the Dixiecrats jumped over to the GOP, thanks to the Southern Strategy.

        • Siegfried Heydrich

          Ah, wingnuts . . . living in the past and denying the present because they have no future . . .

        • RobertCHastings

          Once again, the historical illiterate strikes at sanity. Get back on your meds, before they put you back in the white coat.

  • Np surprise!!

    • whodatbob

      It is a sad surprise! This is an insane act but truly a surprise.

  • Slime vs. Slime…what? Me worry?

  • Siegfried Heydrich

    Hey, the partygoers were enjoying their 2nd Amendment party favors!

    I was reading about the shooting yesterday in an article posted on Facebook and in the remarks under the article posters was blaming the shooting on people who want gun control, the government and of course President Obama. There was so much hate in the post that you could feel coming from the posts. I do not understand these people that think the President, the gun control people or the government would shoot innocent people to get gun control. It must be a terrible to live to think the government is after you and your guns all the the time and always looking for the black helicopters.

  • Gun control. who needs gn control, the dead don’t count and the living don’t care.
