Minnesota takes the lead in the number of gun shooting incidents for the week of August 2 - August 8.
Last week we saw Oklahoma with two shootings one shooting was committed done by an Ice Cream vendor when a customer angered him, and the other shooting was self inflicted when a man decided he needed some personal protection and ended up shooting himself when he tried to push a cocked and loaded firearm in the back of his pants. He shot himself in the behind.
This past week-end Minnesota took the lead when a 16 year old boy was found laying on the street, shot in the neck. And four people were shot at a shopping mall, leaving one person dead.
Minnesota s body-bag count goes up one more notch.
Pro-Gun groups claim that 3 million such shootings are prevented daily by gun carrying people and such shootings would end if everyone carried a gun. How that makes sense, I don t have a clue.
