Gun Violence

Santa Fe Springs, California. June 5, 1997.

Daniel S. Marsden fatally shoots 2 co- workers and wounds four others with a 9mm semi-automatic pistol after an argument. He kills himself two hours later.

Memphis, Tennessee. March 3, 2008

Six people were killed, including two children, and another three children wounded in a shooting Monday in Memphis, Tennessee, authorities said.


The first blurb is the first listed instance of gun violence compiled by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

The second case comes straight from CNN.com story that is "breaking" tonight.

According to the Brady Campaigns list over 130 incidents of high profile (likely those not occurring in high crime poor inner city areas) mass gun violence in the last ten years. Maybe time to start thinking about that Second Amendment again?
