Washington Post Blames Gangland Shooting on Second Amendment
Gun control advocates hijack incident in America’s crime capital to demonize law-abiding gun owners

Despite the fact that the FBI described the shooting at a New Orleans Mother’s Day parade as “a flare-up of street violence” and not a targeted attack, the Washington Post cited the incident as another reason to push through draconian gun control measures.
19 people were injured yesterday as the parade passed through the 7th Ward neighborhood near the French Quarter in New Orleans. Suspects were witnessed running from the scene after they fired the shots but no one has been apprehended.
In addition to the FBI describing the incident as “a flare-up of street violence,” CNN reported that, “One of the suspects was described as an African-American male, approximately 18 to 22 years old, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jean shorts.”
Shootings during parades in poorer areas of New Orleans such as the one embroiled in the incident yesterday have become commonplace. Earlier this year, four people were shot after an argument during the last weekend of partying before Mardi Gras.
Despite the fact that the Mother’s Day parade shooting was almost certainly gang-related and probably carried out by drug dealers, in addition to taking place in one of America’s crime capitals, the Washington Post cited the incident as another reason for increasing gun control measures against law-abiding Americans across the country.
In a diatribe calling for increased background checks, opinion writer E.J. Dionne Jr. remarked, “As of May 8, according to Slate magazine, there had been at least 3,947 gun deaths since Newtown. Sunday saw yet another mass shooting, at a Mother’s Day parade in New Orleans.”
Numerous people also took to Twitter to demand Americans be disarmed and only criminals such as the ones most likely involved in yesterday’s shooting be able to have access to guns.
“Praying for new orleans until the next shooting won’t really help anything. We need gun control. Now,” remarked one user.
Enough is enough: 19 New Orleans shooting victims included 2 kids – #GunControl #Now,” added another.
Quite how making it harder for Billy Bob in North Dakota to purchase a rifle at a gun show will prevent criminal gangs in New Orleans from obtaining firearms is not explained by the Washington Post, Piers Morgan, or any other of the gun control advocates who have once again hijacked an unrelated incident to hype their political agenda.

Liberals Go Ballistic Over Anti-Obama Signs In New Orleans…
Uploaded by xxxxxxxpimptaddyone on Sep 29, 2011
There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.
On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.
“It disrespects the nation — and President Barack Obama represents our nation,” said Skip Alexander, as he looked at one of the signs. “He represents everybody, not some people.”
Dozens of protesters came by the house in the 1500 block of Calhoun throughout the day, demanding the sign come down.
“He wouldn’t do that to [President] Bush, I’m sure. It’s just insulting. It’s insulting,” said C.C. Campbell-Rock. “He’s going to have to take them down.”
“This is nothing put pure racism,” said Raymond Rock. “This is a disgrace.”
The home is owned by Timothy Reily, who declined to be interviewed about the signs. Former Mayor Ray Nagin showed up at the house and went inside to speak with Reily. He emerged later and would not comment on what they discussed.
Some neighbors tell Eyewitness News that Reily has been putting the signs up for months. Some of the protesters learned about the signs through a local radio station on Wednesday morning.
“He can put up a sign if he wants to. It doesn’t bother me,” said Harold Gagnet, a neighbor.
“I think it’s fine. It’s on his property,” said Katherine deMontluzin. “He can say whatever he wants.”
The signs have created such a firestorm of controversy, though, that police came to the scene— called in by City Council Member Susan Guidry. She represents the district where the home is located. Guidry said she was concerned about public safety and was trying to figure out if the sign was even legal. She also said she spoke to Reily, but didn’t get far.
“We have to determine that there is a zoning law that prohibits perhaps the size of the sign, perhaps the way that it’s erected, that it is leaning over onto public property,” Guidry said. “Whatever we can use, we will, but of course, we do have to balance that with First Amendment rights.”
Yet, the signs remain in place, fanning the flames of a free speech debate on both sides of the fence.
US police on trial over Katrina killings
Uploaded by AlJazeeraEnglish on Jun 27, 2011
Five police officers in the US city of New Orleans accused of killing civilians in the days following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are set to go on trial.
The police, whose trial begins on Monday, originally contended they had come under fire from someone on a bridge and were defending themselves.
Yet no guns were ever found, and the only person charged with attacking the police was cleared of all charges.
After a local judge dismissed the charges against six others, the US Justice Department stepped in and is bringing the officers to trial in a federal court.
But beyond this case, federal authorities say the police department is riddled with deep-rooted flaws.
New Orleans, a city with the highest murder rate in the US, is now struggling to build confidence in the police department it depends on for protection.
