by an edhat reader,

I live in the area behind the Magnolia Shopping Center close to the 101 Freeway and just heard two possible gunshots. Normally I would think it was a car backfiring but there were two distinct shots about 2-3 seconds apart. Anyone else hear this?

ocean drew remarks " The US has more guns on the street than people.... " Hopefully this is bit of an over statement.

We areabsolutely awash in firearms stupidity. There are over 390 million firearms (that we know of) owned by civilians in the US. That's enough for every man, woman, and child, plus 67 million left over.

I just commented Flicka. Thanks. But it's bodyboarder, not not bodybuilder. Ha ha! I lifted weights like 20 years ago, but I can't muster up the energy to do that anymore.

I'm curious why anyone should be surprised at the sound of gunfire in this day and age. The US has more guns on the street than people. Like it or not they are everywhere and get used quite a lot. Them's the facts of life.

OCEANDREW. Your post makes it sound like you think that's acceptable, for firearms to be "everywhere and get used quite a lot." But I know you're too smart to mean it that way.

It’s creepy how the local media and websites don’t report these things. I heard a helicopter circling west Goleta for 3 hours last night from 9pm-12am. Maybe it was related. But I don’t know. I even posted a question here on this site asking about the helicopter circling for hours and it never even appeared.

I would report it if I heard it there is another citizen reporter that does also but I did not see anything on his page about it either..

We live on the opposite side of the 101 and heard the same at 9:17 last night. I wasn’t sure exactly where the sound came from or what it was, but thought it could be gunshots as well.
