    22 people injured in N.J. art festival shooting

    "'Neighborhood beef' apparently leads to 22 people injured in N.J. art festival shooting, prosecutor says"
    Twenty-two people, including a teenager, were injured early Sunday in a shooting at a 24-hour art festival in Trenton, New Jersey, the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office said.

    One suspect, a 33-year-old man, is believed to have been killed by police, prosecutor Angelo Onofri said. Another suspect was taken into custody, he said. Police recovered multiple weapons.
    "It absolutely could have been worse given the confined space and the number of shots that appear to have been fired," Onofri said.
    The shooting appears to be the result of a "neighborhood beef" that unfolded at the festival, he said. It is not related to terrorism.
    Well as long as it isn't related to terrorism, I guess it is all good.

    It appears to be gang related. The suspect was on parole for "homicide related charges". There had been a lot of fights and gang activity before the shooting.

    In a surprise to no one, the Democrat Governor is calling for more gun laws, while not mentioning the shooter's violent past or his early release from prison.

    NJ governor sees guns, not shooter's early prison release, as the problem

    These reactions are getting just as common as mass shootings. <--- bet you never thought you would hear something like that. What a world we live in!

    I love that you went on to explain the sarcasm in my joke as if you were oblivious to it, only to call everyone else who might not pick up on your sarcasm "fucking retarded".

    i actually see the high casualties in situations such as this as a *consequence* of the strict gun laws.

    there are going to be people who use guns to solve "problems" but if strict gun laws don't allow them to practice with the (illegal) guns they own and use, then they will be less likely to hit their intended targets and more likely to shoot bystanders.

    That's pretty interesting. I hadn't thought of that point of view.

    Your joke lacked decent substance as does 99% of your posts, but by all means continue.
