Busy weekend ...

'Man shot during robbery on Old Savannah Road'
'1 injured in shooting at barber shop'
'3 arrested in Club Pure Platinum shooting'
'2 injured in Augusta shooting'

Monday can't get here soon enough (not that that will probably make a difference though)

fedex227 You beat me to it

With your summary from 'Latest Updates.' I think Augusta leads the league in gun violence. Day after day we see similar news stories in the Chronicle. From the weekend article on turning guns in I think instead of 'Beating them into plowshares' maybe beat them into text books and start educating these villains.

Another LEG Shooting.

OK , one more time.
Leg shots are usually the result of Breaking the wrist and/or trying to throw the bullet out the barrel.

To get torso shots study and use the following target.

CG - maybe we need to open an indoor firearms training range downtown.☺ It would be a Target Rich Environment.☺
Maybe we could start an inter-city Shooting league?☺

Augusta homicides up, but no cases recently
Although Augusta homicides are up compared with this time last year, police say a two-month absence of any is proof that some of their crime initiatives are paying off.
