Another senseless shooting took place last night in Lafayette, Lousiana, when it is alleged that a 59-year-old man entered a movie theater and began shooting.
At least 13 shots were fired apparently by a man, described by police as “kind of a drifter” who lived in Alabama and had only come to Lafayette in early July.
“He parked a blue 1995 Lincoln Continental, with illegally switched license plates, near an exit door to the Grand Theater,” Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said during a news conference near the crime scene. Craft indicated that it appeared the shooter had been intent on “shooting and escaping.”
Also, various “disguises” were found at the hotel room where the man had been staying, according to Craft.

Mayci Breaux, 21, died at the scene while Jillian Johnson, 33, died later at the hospital. Nine other people at the theater were wounded. The shooter took his own life, according to police.
As authorities searched for a motive following the shooting, the left began to plot and carry out its ever recurring gun-control rhetoric. Even before the shooting, President Barack Obama lamented his inability to restrict gun ownership on a wider scale.
