"Not really. We were just locked in a bar and we weren't going to let this one incident wreck our party." = Sure, it's just another shooting. We'd better get used to it.
Just a few revelers exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. Somebody probably felt threatened and stood his or her ground. Nothing to see here. Order another Hurricane.
I did notice it wasn't a stabbing or bludgeoning, but that in no way means that there are too many guns in America. Probably means there aren't enough; one for every man woman and child in this country? There should be at least two, I'm sure. Then the good guys can fire back, and everything will be fine and dandy. Too bad a few other drunks on Bourbon Street weren't packing.
You're right swimnguy, this would have never happen had everyone in the crowd been packing. At least per current NRA knowledge. "The perp" even though he/she was drunk and very angry would have consciously stopped and thought "if I pull my gun someone will shoot me". Fat chance.
Well, here it goes again. Left leaning media here and throughout the country is giving the public stories like this to further their agenda. Don't bother reporting the death by firearm at the hands of thugs in New Orleans that occurs nearly every day, no...give us a story about a RARE shooting on Bourbon Street. BTW, Louisiana has the distinction of having the highest rate of death by firearm in the country...19.87 per 100,000 thanks to the thugs in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
"johndont": I'm sorry; I don't quite follow your point. Are there too many guns in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, or not enough?
