Six Mass Shootings Over the Weekend!

You have doubtless seen some breathless variant on NPR or antisocial media.  The Gun Violence Archive which includes justifiable shootings in its archive lists six.  Three had no deaths.  Some sound suspiciously like gang incidents.   Like this one in Boyle Heights in Los Angeles:
"rapper's birthday party at a warehouse; poss teen vics, 2 security guards shot; at least 3 males; multiple shooters. ALT: 1400 block of S Lorena St, Grande Vista"

Now this does not mean gang shootings are unimportant, but they are not generally the mass public shootings that scare middle class white people who are the gun banner constitutency.
