If it's gang related, can it still count as a mass shooting? This is definitely one in which the shooter was not concerned with the gun-free-zone status of the location but only with his grievance.Officials said gunshots rang out at a Sweet 16 birthday party after 11 p.m. in the 100 block of East 13th Street.One victim was pronounced dead at the scene and the second died at a hospital, WPBF reported."A lot of people screaming ... A lot of kids were standing around. There were kids on the floor, some saying they didn't do anything, saying they were just in their car with some of their friends."
That's usually the case.
Why do the pro-gun folks keep trying to blame the gun free zone? Sometimes they actually say mass shootings ONLY happen at gun free zones, the implication being that shooters choose them for the target-rich environment.
Nonsense. Mass shooters do not choose their location based on anything but their anger and rage. Sometimes it's a school that happens to be a gun free zone, other times it's a sweet sixteen party that is not.
