    Five also shot in Miami which is pretty much an every day thing in that cesspool of a city…

      You really have it bad for Miami, the place is not as you perceive it to be.

        I’m not the only one who perceives Miami that way. People are moving north to Ft Lauderdale and into Palm Beach. BTW…it was recently voted THE worst city in the country for quality of life…

    A far worse tragedy than in Sydney, but we are so damned desensitized to this kind of horror that we just gloss over it. But guns aren’t the problem. The country that has so many idiots who welcome gun violence is the problem.

    Great another entrant for the NRA shooter of the month award… But you only have to shoot one person…multiples don’t give you extra credit
