    the law change?

    I'm saying Bourbon Street was always crazy but not shooting 9 people in one brawl crazy. So the change did change things.

    •  This is nothing new for NO (4+ / 0-)
      It was the third major shooting on Bourbon Street in the last three years.

      On the Saturday before Mardi Gras, four people were treated at a hospital after a shooting. During Halloween in 2011, one person was killed and seven others were injured after gunmen opened fire on each other.

      Here's your link.

      you are assuming the shooter(s) possessed their weapons legally and that this new "law" whatever this "new law" is, resulted in this - lets wait for the facts to come out.

      I'll stand by my original comment and also add that unlimited booze, 2:45 AM, young men with guns aren't a good mixture.

      Considering there were several eye witnesses, video etc and the Police are being so coy about not releasing and details about the shooter(s) - don't be surprised if it's a bit more than two drunk assholes and NO doesn't want to alarm the public and hurt their cash cow of Bourbon Street.

      The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government. - Thomas Jefferson
