In a 12-hour stretch from Saturday night to Sunday morning, there were four shootings in Indianapolis. Two downtown, one on the northwest side and another when a cop pulled someone over. A total of five people were shot, including an IMPD police officer during that stop. He was shot four times—twice in the face—and his clinging to life.

Four shootings. Five victims. Twelve hours.


The answer is not more guns, it’s less. The answer is not more laws, it’s smarter laws. How and where did these people get a hold of these weapons? How many more cops have to get shot? How many more innocent bystanders have to be put at risk? How many more bullets have to fly before we stop fetishizing the Second Amendment and get serious about stopping the violence.
