I was attacked by a stray cat once.

Two women were shot and wounded early Saturday morning in downtown Minneapolis after they were caught in a crossfire between two other cars.

Police say the two women were driving in the North Loop neighborhood on North 2nd Street just after 2:20 a.m. when they were struck by bullets fired by people shooting at each from two other cars between 5th and 6th Avenues. The two women were able to drive to Hennepin County Medical Center, where they were treated for minor injuries from the stray bullets, police spokesman John Elder said.

Police arrested two men and one woman in connection with the shooting; they remain in Hennepin County on pending second-degree assault charges. Police didnít have additional details on the shooting or the womenís injuries.

Stray bullets are al over place.

IF Government eliminated all guns from the earth there would be no stray bullets.

We would then have to worry about stray knives, stray clubs, stray fists, stray cars, etc etc etc..

At ome point every criminal ends up in prison and no more stray weapons.

It's interesting to hear the Government spin Doctors discribe shootings.

Their latest excuse is that MILLIONS of people visit Minneapolis every week and a couple being shot is no big deal.

That sounds like Obama, explaining the 4 Americans killed in Benghazi, nothing but "bumps in the road".

Tell that to someone kicked, stabbed, shot, clubbed in Minneapolis.

Don't visit Minneapolis!!

What's interesting and disturbing is that the Republican party has been bought and sold to the NRA lobbyist who won't work with the President and the Democratic party for a simple gun control and a effective background check to reduce gun violence and the senseless harming of the innocent.
We Dems must be strong and prepare for the 2014 mid terms this upcoming election will be a game changer!

You libertards love shootings because they reenforce the alledged need for "gun control".

However none of the gun control proposed will take weapons out of the hands of criminals. Nor will any gun control take criminals off the streets preventing them from harming others.

In virtually EVERY CASE of a shooting the gun used was not supposed to be in the hands of the criminal who did the shooting. Therefore in every case they were already breaking the law. Criminals ignore all laws so any new gun control law will only affect law abiding citizens making them criminals for just owning a gun.

"Never let a disaster go unused", Eric Holder. Let the shooting continue.

BTW, the criminal justice system fails to put shooters away because the more shooting the more opportunity to use the shootings as ammunition to push for gun control.

Democrats control the Minnesota Legislature and the governor's office. Why don't they pass stricter gun control laws at the state level?
