    Why am I not surprised it was New Orleans?
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    I was wondering the same thing! Another article explained it groups of people who follow a band dancing and singing - the band is the first line, the people following behind are the second line. I guess it's some kind of New Orleans tradition...

    From the linked article.

    Shootings at parades and neighborhood celebrations have become more common in recent years as the city has struggled with street crime. Police say gang turf wars often are the root cause.

    NOrleans has been a shoot em up city for a good while now. Full of hatered and revenge, drugs, drinking, hookers, and great politicians. Have I missed anything....Oh flies and Mosquitos to tame ur hide a bit!!!
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    A "second line" is a string of people walking/dancing with the beat of the music. They sometimes wave handkerchiefs or carry umbrellas.

    Noting the street names they are not in the touristy part of town. I'm willing to bet rival gang/drug conflict shooting. Obviously innocent people were hurt.

    It's true N.O. has some bad folks, bad parts of town, and some crooked politicians, the same is true for most large cities. Big cities also have a better side/people/community somewhere else as well. My wife and I have been going to N.O. all of our lives, her family used to live there. You have to know where to go, what to do, and what time to do it. We've never had any trouble or witnessed anything remotely serious. In all these years, we had one very veiled threat directed toward us, and that didn't work out very well for the guy.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    The antis are already beating the war drums over this one, screaming "we need laws" again. I heard a blurb on the radio this morning about how NPR is going to do a segment today about tracking down crime guns to the last lawful owner in an attempt to place blame and liability.
