I never intended for this website to be toxic, but rather to bring focus to the growing number of mass and domestic shootings in the United States and Canada, and the immediate need for effective gun control.

Therefore, I will not be posting every mass and domestic shooting reported in the media, but instead encourage you to check out my “Links” page for a list of organizations that can empower you by taking action for positive change. http://www.killingyouiskillingme.com/links

 

 

 

 

The gun should have had blanks. Instead a 73-year-old retired librarian playacting as a victim in a “shoot/don’t shoot” exercise at a Florida police community event to show her support for the Men in Blue was shot and killed Tuesday night by an officer who mistakenly fired live ammunition instead of blank rounds, according to Punta Gorda, Fla., police. How could this have happened?

Here we go again…another senseless at-home shooting death. This time, over a cheeseburger!

(CNN) – A Florida man is accused of killing his brother over an argument that involved a cheeseburger, authorities say.

Benjamin A. Middendorf, 25, shot his older brother during the dispute Thursday night, police said in a statement.

The fight started after the victim, Nicholas Middendorf, their mother and a third man returned from a night of drinking, according to the police report.

“I shot my brother on accident,” a man is heard yelling on a 911 call released by police in St. Cloud, Florida.

“We were in a fight and I grabbed a gun and I shot him. Oh God,” Middendorf said, still screaming. “I’m so sorry.”

“A woman’s voice is also heard on the 911 call telling the operator, “I’m going to kill my son.”

“I hope you go to jail,” the voice said.

Nicholas Middendorf, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Spokeswoman, Denise Roberts of St. Cloud Police, conformed to CNN that the argument involved a cheeseburger. She did not provide additional details.

“It is Mother’s Day Weekend, and the mom has lost two sons,” Roberts told CNN affiliate Central Florida News.

Middendorf is facing first-degree premeditated murder charges.

 

 

 

 

 

People are allowed to carry “loaded” weapons in public places … I mean, what planet are we living on?! Well, Trader Joe’s believes we can do better. They just stood up for gun sense by asking their customers NOT to shop in their Texas stores while openly carrying loaded weapons.
