http://rt.com/usa/new-orleans-parade-shooting-179/

Twelve people are being treated for gunshot wounds following a shootout at a second line parade on Mother’s Day in New Orleans. The youngest victim in the surprise attack was 10 years old, according to a local resident.

Over 300 people were participating in the residential festival, on Frenchmen Street, in the north of the city, when several shots were fired. The incident occurred around 2pm local time on Sunday.

Police confirmed the number of casualties stood at 12 following some discrepancies in initial hospital reports, suggesting that between five and 11 may have been injured.

Police believe three suspects were responsible for the gunfire, who were seen fleeing towards Claiborne Avenue. A door-to-door search is being conducted in the hopes of tracing one or more of them.

Well.

Sh*t.

Well since you're the first to mention this whole taking away "rights" and all that good jazz on this thread. Allow me to take this time to tell you that there is no need for you to immediately yell "THEY'RE TAKING OUR GUNS" whenever gun violence tragedy happens. And I assure you doing something to prevent this kind of violence is better than doing nothing, WITHOUT taking your precious guns away. So chill and hold your guns closely to your chest and say "MY PRECIOUS."

You're quite the presumptuous individual, aren't you?

Firstly, I did not specifically say they would do anything about guns. The word I used was "rights". Your reading comprehension and inferring skills may need some touching up, but I'll be the first to say that "rights" have been impeded upon, rendered null, or outright ignored by the United States government (both by various states and the federal branch) since the beginning of this country whenever untoward violence has occurred, often having nothing to do with guns, although I do seem to remember plenty of far left individuals being perfectly fine with nullifying the 2nd Amendment after the incident at Sandy Hook. Rights have been trampled upon (see unauthorized search and seizure during Boston Bombings), the suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War, or the trampling of the 4th and 5th Amendments through FISA, the Patriot Act, and so on. Tragedies compound in the hearts and minds of enablers over a great deal of time, and eventually, they list of hundreds of incidents (such as this one) to justify taking away this right or that right. This has been done in regards to firearms, and it has been done to suspend just about every inalienable right that the American people are afforded to.

Secondly, I don't own a firearm, so don't immediately make one silly, baseless inference, and then jump to an ever more farfetched one beyond that.

Have a nice Mother's Day, and keep your illogical assumptions to yourself.

Riiiiight, of course you were talking about FISA in this context because obviously the article was talking about privacy rather than gun violence. Great deductive reasoning Einstein, thank you, really thank you.

I wasn't talking about any rights in particular, which was the point. My statement was to keep people steadfast in their watching of their civil liberties, given all the recent tragedies and horrific events that have taken place in the last year or so. And, given your sardonic and truly unapologetic response (I'm offended you unfairly stigmatized me as a gun nut) to my rebuttal, I'll take this as your concession.

Please, don't try to make it seem like you're somehow in the right with this argument here. You made several fallacious errors, I pointed it out, and that's the end of it.

Also, why would you use Einstein as a pejorative when discussing the subject of deductive reasoning? Wouldn't Sherlock Holmes or Elliot Stabler be far more sufficient and clever?

It's been popular to be a coward since the Gun became popular in the world... I mean by definition someone who holds a cannon and fires on someone who has no cannon is cowardly in nature and this has been going on for hundreds of years... it aint just start...

@king_saturn: Good point. I didn't think of it like that before, but now I feel like there is an increase of shootings with no clear motive. It frustrates me albeit shootings in general should have frustrated me since the gun became popular.

More or less this. Weapons evolve, and technology means we hear of news that half a century ago might not have traveled out of the town it occurred in, but scumbags have been a constant in human history.

Child of 13 stoned to death in Somalia

A girl stoned to death in Somalia this week was 13 years old, not 23, contrary to earlier news reports. She had been accused of adultery in breach of Islamic law.

Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was killed on Monday 27 October, by a group of 50 men in a stadium in the southern port of Kismayu, in front of around 1,000 spectators. Somali journalists who had reported she was 23 have told Amnesty International that they judged her age by her physical appearance.

Inside the stadium, militia members opened fire when some of the witnesses to the killing attempted to save her life, and shot dead a boy who was a bystander. An al-Shabab spokeperson was later reported to have apologized for the death of the child, and said the militia member would be punished.

At one point during the stoning, Amnesty International has been told by numerous eyewitnesses that nurses were instructed to check whether Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was still alive when buried in the ground. They removed her from the ground, declared that she was, and she was replaced in the hole where she had been buried for the stoning to continue.

Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was accused of adultery, but sources told Amnesty International that she had in fact been raped by three men, and had attempted to report this rape to the al-Shabab militia who control Kismayo. It was this act that resulted in her being accused of adultery and detained. None of men she accused of rape were arrested.

She was detained by militia of the Kismayo authorities, a coalition of Al-shabab and clan militias. During this time, she was reportedly extremely distressed, with some individuals stating she had become mentally unstable.

Amnesty International has campaigned to end the use of the punishment of stoning, calling it gruesome and horrific. This killing of Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow demonstrates the cruelty and the inherent discrimination against women of this punishment.
