Thank you Charleton Heston and the NRA.

Just came back from the Detroit fireworks (they were awesome). The event was marred by gunplay. About 2 minutes into the fireworks someone stole or jostled someone elses sunglasses (not sure of the cause). For some reason this prompted the man to pull a gun and start firing into the crowd. 8 people hit. 2 in critical condition and 1 in unknown condition. Me and my GF were sitting nearly on top of the incident. But with all the booming all we knew about it was the sudden charging of the crowd trying to clear the area.
