Weren’t we promised that America would lapse back into peaceful torpor with boring old Joe Biden in charge?

All mass shootings in the last 48 hours 💔
When you start to lose track of which is which...
THEN SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE.
From 4WWL-TV in New Orleans:
… A neighbor who saw paramedics take the victims to the hospital said all the victims were children, celebrating a birthday party in a garage nearby.
Rashad Bolden lives two doors down from where the shooting took place, and he told WWLTV’s Paul Dudley he was home when the shooting happened Saturday night. …
“Everybody I saw taken to the ambulance — they were all kids,” Bolden said. “I looked out my window and saw a whole bunch of people scurrying, so I came outside.”
Bolden said he believes the shooter was also a child.
“For someone to just shoot into the garage full of kids, that’s kind of heartless,” Bolden said. “You want to call it heartless, but you know they are not old enough to know what heartless is.”
Arriving at the scene around 8:30 p.m., sheriff’s deputies said they learned an argument led to gunfire that left several victims wounded, a statement from the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
Meanwhile, to the north in Shreveport, Louisiana:
BREAKING: At least 5 people shot in Shreveport, Louisiana https://t.co/OpuIVfdTf7— BNO News (@BNONews) April 19, 2021
And in Columbus, Ohio:
Woman killed in Columbus-area mass shooting struck by bullet as she passed shopping plaza
The Columbus Dispatch
LaToya Renee Carpenter hadn’t been gone from the apartment more than a few minutes when her fiance, Perez Williams, heard banging on their door.
Roused from a nap, Williams answered it to find his niece and some other friends and family, frantic as they told him what had just happened. Carpenter had been shot, they said, and she had not survived.
Williams was in disbelief.
“I said, ‘Ain’t no way,’ because she just walked out the door,’” Williams, 50, said.
Carpenter left her Truro Township apartment, just southeast of Columbus, just before 7:30 p.m. to pick up her 11-year-old daughter from her sister’s home.
At the same time, a dark sports utility vehicle — possibly a Dodge Durango, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office — was driving west on Chatterton Road by the Refugee Center shopping plaza. Someone in the SUV fired gunshots into a small group of people who had gathered outside of the Dollar General for a vigil commemorating the one-year anniversary of the death of a man who was killed at the location in what authorities said was a drug deal gone bad.
A stray bullet struck Carpenter, 39, in the head as she drove eastbound on Chatterton Road, causing her to crash into a car parked in the lot of Cross Key apartments. The mother of three died at the scene around 7:50 p.m., said Columbus police Lt. Dan Hargus
Five others were also hit by gunfire in the shooting and were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspected shooter who killed three in a domestic situation in Texas was identified by police as 41-year-old Stephen Broderick. Cops said he's a former sheriff’s deputy. https://t.co/yTWkvPyVxy— New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) April 18, 2021
I don’t know which of the seven shootings in Detroit this weekend the tweet refers to:
Kenosha I wrote about below as a test of Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings.
Democrats are presently excited about this weekend’s carnage as proof that we need to do something about scary rifles and ghost guns. Very few, however, can even imagine that all the weekend’s mass shooters are very likely to be black. That’s not conceivable within their worldview of who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.
Pointing out that the inconceivable is actually obvious is what I’ve been doing over my 30 year writing career. As I may have mentioned, I run iSteve fundraisers in April, August, and December.
