Butcher's Bill: Nine dead, 17 injured.
The Gilroy shooting is the one getting all the attention because two of the murdered people were children, and because the shooter apparently was a deranged Dylann Roof wannabe, and because it conforms to the made-for-TV specifications of a mass shooting. But five people were shot to death in Chippewa Falls, in their homes. The shooter is one of them, so we may never know why. In Philadelphia, an aspiring rapper was shot in the head right before he was about to film a video. And, probably because the shooter was a bloodthirsty moron, five more people got shot there, too. From Channel 6 in Philadelphia:
"A .380 caliber handgun was discovered on his person. The firearm was loaded at the time of recovery," said Captain Smith.
Sunday night was a big night for the unfortunate exercise of Second Amendment rights in this country.
