Another week, another mass shooting, this time in New Jersey at a festival called Art All Night.
I can already here the mating calls of the 2nd Amendment Republicans:
Too many doors!
Why do they let people were baggy clothes on a summer night?
This is what happens when liberals get together at festivals that value lefty things, like art!
We’ll propose a ban on doors, baggy clothes, and art to save the people just as soon as we find a way to stop all this criticism that keeps happening to us despite the fact we’re only exercising our 1st Amendment rights!
Call your representatives and senators and insist that they vote for the ban on doors, baggy clothes & art! Don’t let them take away your guns! Freedom first!
Would you believe that the CNN story on this this morning included the line:
Authorities have heard that as many as 1,000 people were in the area at the time of the shooting, Onofri said. The festival entrances had no metal detectors, he said.
Yes. Yes of course you would.
As for the people, there’s still one victim in “extremely critical” condition – probably still in surgery. Twenty people were injured. It appears that “one killed” is in reference to a suspect that was killed, probably by police. Unusually for situations like this, there was actually another suspect as well, that one taken into custody alive.
I hope the final death toll doesn’t get any higher.
