A group of men and women in New Orleans were having a Mother’s Day parade. Hardly news, just a stroll in the afternoon to honor women in the community who have children. Suddenly, shots rang out, men and women and children fell to the ground and within moments about 19 were wounded. Police saw three suspects flee from the scene of violence. As many as 400 were in the group that was shot and there were even police on the scene. Why anyone would fire on mothers is beyond the comprehension of normal humans.
But, this is America, land of I have my gun and I have the right to use it. I need my gun in case a group of women dressed in black storm my home and take away my right to freedom. This shooting is simply another example of what occurs in a land in which normal, logical restrictions on placed on ownership of guns.
