As the number of mass shootings grows by the day and Congress remains deadlocked on how to address the issue thanks to the massive donations given to the party currently in power by the NRA, news of yet another mass shooting came from New Jersey in the middle of the night.

ABC News reports that:

‘The shooting broke out at about 2:45 a.m. in Trenton, New Jersey, at Art All Night, an annual event to “promote artistic diversity by fostering creativity, learning, and appreciation of the arts,” according to the event’s website. The event, held at Roebling Market in the southern part of the city, which lies just across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania, was attended by an estimated thousand or more people, authorities said.’

During a press conference early Sunday morning, the Mercer County prosecutor’s office reported that a 33-year-old man, the only related death thus far, is a suspect in the attack. Another suspect is in custody.

Of the survivors, 16 are currently being treated for gunshot-related injuries and another four for other injuries. Authorities acknowledge that it could have been worse, but right now the focus is on efforts to deal with the situation at hand.

‘It absolutely could have been worse given the confined space and the number of shots that appeared to have been fired. We’ve heard estimates ranging from 1,000 and up people there.’

These incidences are not going to slow down or stop until something is done. As long as common sense gun law reform is still pushed as a way to strip all citizens of their right to protect themselves by paid lobbyists supporting the GOP, that’s never going to happen.
