I’ve heard what sound like two separate gunshots downtown near Paseo Nuevo before midnight. Sometimes there are fireworks downtown, but this sounds different.
Heard one late last night about that time that didn't quite sound like a firecracker.
It must have been the well-regulated militia doing target practice in the street.
I'm perfectly happy with confiscation of the firearm and forfeiture of the right to bear arms for anyone who pops off two shots downtown for any reason other than self defense.
The well regulated gun owners train, practice safety first, operate legal licensed permitted firearms configured according to CA law and practice shooting in a legal designated area . Lumping them in with some jackass or gangster or disaffected mental case defies the logic inherent in the term well regulated.
Yup. Heard both last night and another one tonight at 11:49pm. Sounded like it came from the Cota commuter lot.
Days of the "Old West" has returned in the 21st century. A lot of shootings these days in our city and county, as well all across the entire US. "Dang! My horse broke his leg! Well, I got put him down, the I'll just steal another horse. Hope I don't caught!"
