    Bad: Anti-Gun Fail - 2 murders, 3 other shootings after 'Stop the Violence' Rally

    In East St. Louis.

    OOPS!

    EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- The Memorial Day Weekend has been filled with violence in East St. Louis.

    A man was shot and killed at a barbecue on Saturday. Another man was shot and killed early Sunday morning walking between bars. And about an hour later, 3 people were shot at a market.

    All the violence follows the “Stop the Violence” rally in East St. Louis on Friday featuring the parents of Trayvon Martin.

    ....(snip).......

    East St. Louis Police said they were not able to gather much information concerning Dotson’s murder. The police and Mayor Parks are asking for the public’s help.

    “Support them. Give them the information they need," Parks said. "Forget about this thing of 'no snitching,' that's crazy. I guess the time when it really matters to someone is when they lose a loved one.”

    My Comments: Yet another string of random firearms violence caused by Law Abiding people who actually go through background checks and training to get licenses, NOT! Really, I'm just joking there........

    I say they should have another rally immediately! Invite the Revs Al and Jessee this time. Light candles and hold hands. Condemn the violence and boogie until dark, then quickly run for cover

    irony....?!?

    Thank goodness our goverment officals, whom we elected and placed in office, find it necessary to cut funding to services, like say, the POLICE.........

    The only way to defeat violence is with equal or greater violence of action. That's up to 'us' ladies and gentelmen.




    I'm preaching to the choir, sorry ya'll.

    Didn't hear much about violence after the NRA meeting. Oh, Ted was questioned by the SS.

    I like to think positive and find the silver lining in situations like this. At least it appears that no neighborhood watch vollunteers were involved in these shootings.

    Spent 38 years living right next door to E. St. Louis, IL. in Cahokia. Half their police services are provided by the Illinois State Police. Their city government is corrupt to the core and the Feds have raided the mayors office and toted away evidence for years now. It all started with Mayor Carl Officer. Without at least one good guard dog, a home security system, vigilance and home protection, you're going to be a victim of crime.

    Fortunately I was able to retire, give the house away and get out of Dodge. Not many buyers for a high crime area and the worst schools in the state, regardless of the real estate market.

    Man I'm glad to be out of there!

    I have to go to STL twice a year for training and I made the mistake of looking for a gas station on the IL side once. never again. in order to obey IL state gun transportation laws (drive from Louisville to St Louis), my gun was disassembled and cased in my truck. I pumped almost 2 gallons before I buttoned up and split. what a toilet.
