MIAMI (CBS4)– Police say two career criminals burglarized
(Newser)– A 9-year-old Minnesota boy was killed during a series of apparently random shootings last night. An assailant terrorized a residential area for about 30 minutes, walking down the middle of the street shooting at passing cars, the Pioneer Press reports. Nhan Lap Tran, 34, was arrested in the shootings, which took place in an area around his parents' home, where neighbors say he either lives or visits often. At least four cars were shot in a radius of several blocks; the dead boy's mother and another motorist were also injured.

"He was just walking diagonally down the middle of the street. Then he turned toward me and just started firing," says one witness. "He was just walking, not even running. It was crazy." The boy's mother pulled her minivan, with the back window and both rear tires shot out, into a nearby grocery store parking lot for help; her son had been shot in the head and died later at a hospital. She was shot in the arm. A third victim, a 68-year-old woman, was hit in the finger and leg and had to have her finger amputated. Her vehicle was hit by six rounds. "My three sisters were in the car; they just yelled,'Go!'" says the woman's granddaughter. The victim pulled into a nearby parking lot and a man who stopped to help also saw his tires shot out.

5 accidentally shot at gun shows in North Carolina, Ohio, Indiana
By Vignesh Ramachandran, Staff Writer, NBC News

Five people were wounded in accidents at gun shows in North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana on Saturday, according to authorities.

In Raleigh, N.C., authorities said three people were wounded when a loaded shotgun accidentally discharged at the Dixie Gun and Knife Show at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

Officials say Gary Lynn Wilson, 36, was having his shotgun checked before entering the show when the incident happened. He was unzipping his 12-gauge shotgun's case when it accidentally fired birdshot pellets, hitting three people, The News & Observer in Raleigh reported. Wilson was planning on privately selling the gun at the show, according to NBC affiliate WNCN.

The three victims, Janet Hoover, Linwood Hester and Jake Alderman, were hit, respectively, in the right torso, left hand and right hand, WNCN reported. They were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Witness Daniel Peadan told WNCN he was about to enter the building, when he heard a loud pop: "The people right there at the door, a lot of them ran ... They scattered because it was chaotic."

"This was an accidental discharge," said Brian Long, a spokesman for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, in a statement.

Chicago Police Chief: Second Amendment Is A Danger To Public Safety

http://www.redstate.com/dloesch/2013/02/17/ch...

Chicago’s Chief of Police, who previously blamed ”government-sponsored racism” and Sarah Palin for Chicago’s gun violence, declared that the law-ful exercise of the Second Amendment was a threat to public safety. From the Illinois State Rifle Association:

Chicago’s embattled police superintendent dug himself deeper into a pit of controversy today by claiming that lawful firearm owners are agents of political corruption. Appearing on a Chicago Sunday morning talk show, superintendent Garry McCarthy expressed his conviction that firearm owners who lobby their elected representatives or who donate money to political campaigns are engaged in corruption that endangers public safety. McCarthy went on to express his belief that judges and legislators should rely on public opinion polls when interpreting our Constitution.

After totally dismissing the citizen’s right to redress grievances, McCarthy trained his constitutional wisdom on the 2nd Amendment. Despite recent court decisions to the contrary, McCarthy opined that the 2ndAmendment limits citizens to owning smooth-bore muskets. McCarthy went on to say that he believes that the 2nd Amendment supports mandatory liability insurance for firearm owners and the mandatory application of GPS tracking devices to civilian owned firearms.

“ Garry McCarthy ’s understanding of our Constitution barely qualifies him as a meter maid, never mind the chief of the nation’s third largest police department,” commented ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson .“What on earth would possess McCarthy to assert that constitutional rights should be meted out based on public opinion polls? Let’s not forget that public opinion polls once opposed a woman’s right to vote while it would be a safe bet that, at one time, polls would have shown lynching as an acceptable form of justice. It has been said that our Constitution exists to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. McCarthy’s view of our Constitution is dangerous and unbecoming of a civil servant.”

“McCarthy needs to understand that the lawful firearm owners of this state will continue to lobby their representatives and continue to support candidates who represent their interests,” continued Pearson.“If Garry McCarthy doesn’t like that, well that’s just too bad. If McCarthy is so interested in influence peddling, he should pop into some of the gin mills ringing the Illinois Capitol and count the ruddy red noses of taxpayer-funded lobbyists for the City of Chicago.”

McCarthy’s assertion that the Founders limited arms to smooth bore muskets is demonstrably false as well.

McCarthy has previously said that Illinois “does not have strict gun laws” and that stricter laws were needed in order to adequately combat crimes committed by those illegally possessing firearms.

It’s a concerning prejudice against law-abiding citizens from an official who has the authority to arrest and give orders to fire at them.

He's a HUGE reason that Chicago is not only mis-managed but unprotected. A couple of facts for you:

The handgun ban in Chicago is not new - Chicago passed its handgun ban nearly 27 years ago, on April 9, 1982. Guns are not illegal to own in Chicago - you can own one, but only if you’ve owned it since before 1982 and you register it every year with the Chicago Police Department.

At 143rd Street, on the right, sits Chuck’s Gun Shop, one of the closest places to legally buy a handgun outside Chicago’s city limits.

A trip to Chuck’s on a recent weekday morning saw nearly 30 patrons walk through the door in the space of an hour. They were there for guns. Trade-in, apply for, shop or rent – it’s all available at Chuck’s.

In 2006 Chuck’s won the Dealer Recruiter of the Year Award from the National Rifle Association for getting the most patrons to join the National Rifle Association.

Employees wear handguns in hip holsters, and before they’ll let customers see or touch anything, they ask to see their Firearm Owner’s Identification card.

According to Illinois law, anyone who owns or wants to own a firearm must apply for a “gun card,” as the FOID is commonly known.
Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor at Saint Sabina’s Catholic Church in Chicago’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood, organizes gun drives and runs the Do You Care? intervention program to teach young people ways to resolve conflicts nonviolently.

He sees the problem as largely a cultural one.
“Kids are armed with guns because it has become part of the wardrobe in America,” Pfleger said.

One of the biggest reasons you never hear of a mass shooting at a Chicago area school.

PS:
IMO::
Thought processes work differently for all people
but it seems to-me they're working in reverse more
these days.
Working from the front and going backwards, when
they should be studing what's behind it all!
300,000,000 people explains why there's more
violence than there once was,?maybe?
But the "MEDIA" is mostly too cause, they wear
everything down to a frenzy when there's no cause for it.
IT ALL =spelled out in one word is:

There will be more guns if the temperature of the earth goes up or goes down, if the Yankees win the pennant or don't, if the stock market goes up or it goes down.

There are 275 million in the USA now and we can be sure that another 32,000 will be dead in 2013 because of them, and another 32,000 dead in 2014.

And we can be sure the more there are, the faster the number will go up.
