Five people were hospitalized after being shot and injured in Shreveport, Louisiana, CBS-affiliated television station KSLA reported late on Sunday, the third multiple shooting reported in the United States with 24 hours.

In a briefing to local news outlets, police said they were in the first stages of investigating the incident, without confirming the number of people admitted to hospital nor their condition.

Police officers were responding to traffic congestion reports when shots were heard, a police spokesman told reporters. "We responded this evening to a traffic congestion and during that congestion, numerous shots were fired," the spokesman said.

One victim was shot in the head, while another suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to local news outlet Love Shreveport-Bossier.

3. Is it possible that some people seeing so many mass shootings

eventually get so accustomed to them that they think that doing one might help their situation?

5. The first response to anger used to be an argument.

Now it’s a gun. The pandemic has put people on edge, but right-wing media hasn’t helped as it cranks up the anger and resentment toward “the other” every day. If you’re in a perpetual state of anger, then even minor irritations can result in a violent response—and guns are easily available to somehow get even with people who anger or irritate you.

Daily shootings and murders brought to us by the Republican Party and their media mouthpieces.

6. geezz. I wish we could just melt down guns. just to damn many guns and folks pull

them out to settle arguments. And then more people buy handguns to protect themselves. Just a circle of deadly violence.

over and over. over and over.

7. well the stats say

People of All Ages in the U.S. Every day, 316 people are shot in the United States.

the news have to concentrate on whatever they want to cover. so single death is not a big deal anymore unless the scenario is far from the norm.

8. The takeaway for me

The public may know little about personalites and personality disorders, but what they're not telling us is that both are not an either-or, yes-no, absent-present toggle switch. They are gradated up and down the metrics and symptoms. My guess is just like everything else they are on a loose-fitting bell-shaped curve, and are not constant for most people. So stressors like the economy, isolation, political activation, exposure to the means and methods cause a still small but significant number of people to go off the deep end into violence, vengence, fantasy fulfillment, power trips. Not to mention the influence of substances on individuals.

So buckle up. We're nowhere near even mentioning the root causes, in my point of view.

9. Since we can't talk about gun control after a mass shooting

When mass shootings happen every day, we can never talk about gun control.
