GA Man Wounds 20+, Kills 5+ With Double Barreled Shotgun, Is Taken Out by Citizen Armed With Handgun

by Jerry Bader

Okay, so it happened a century ago, that's the point. Several things struck me about this. A hundred years ago:

  • Mental health issues were causing mass shootings
  • A gun that fires a mere two shots before needing to be reloaded caused this much carnage
  • You could rush into a hardware store and get a gun when you need one and rush out with it
  • Even then the New York Times didn't know the difference between a double barrel and an automatic shotgun.
