Thanks to the NRA and the GOP politicians who rely on their financial support, mass shootings are a daily occurrence in the U.S. On Sunday, reports of yet another shooting in Baltimore came after a gunman opened fire on a barbecue.

The shooting took place across from the Perkins Square Baptist Church. Police say that the suspect, described only as a black male, is still at large. Six victims were transported to a local hospital for medical care and their conditions have not yet been reported. One victim has died.

NBC News reports:

‘Seven people have been shot, including one fatally, in a west Baltimore neighborhood, city police said.’

Just two days after the current president spoke to a crowd of NRA leaders, shilling for their support on a day in which four Jewish Americans were shot at a synagogue in California, a shooter left more

‘Police said they received a call after 5 p.m. reporting multiple injuries in a shooting at a cookout and confirmed that one person has died.’

The Baltimore Sun reported that the church was not targeted.

‘Officials said a so-far-unidentified gunman opened fire — shooting indiscriminately — at a cookout at the intersection of Edmondson and Whitmore avenues.

‘One person was found dead near Perkins Square Baptist Church. The remaining six victims — men and women — were taken to area hospitals for treatment. The victims’ conditions were not immediately known.’
