This is one outrageous piece of gun loonery out of Chattanooga:
A woman’s teenage boyfriend fired five shots at another woman, a disabled man and three children after his girlfriend had an argument over trying to get baby formula.
I got nuthin’.

A woman driving her car just north of Nashville was struck in the leg by a stray bullet which came through the car door. Police have no clue where the bullet came from.
This part of the county is pretty rural and since the incident occurred at 3 pm on a lovely, sunny Sunday afternoon, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess it was some yahoo target shooting.

MURFREESBORO — A resident of the Brownstone Apartments on Lascassas Pike accused his neighbor of striking him with the butt of a double-barreled shotgun, according to a reported filed Thursday with the Murfreesboro Police Department.
The 19-year-old man told Officer Phillip Simpson that he confronted his neighbor around 11:30 Tuesday night about her harassing his girlfriend over the phone.
The victim said he told her to stop and the 19-year-old woman responded by slamming the door in his face, Simpson said.
“As (the victim) was walking away, (the subject) came back out of the apartment carrying a double-barreled, side-by-side shotgun. (She) approached (the victim) with the shotgun, pointed it at him before flipping it around and striking (him) in the right eye with the buttstock,” Simpson wrote.

Also from Murfreesboro: Knock knock! Who’s there? Gun. Gun who?
A 35-year old woman at a local apartment complex called the police after she says her neighbor pulled a gun on her. The incident was reported on Tuesday at Saddlebrook Apartments. The victim reported that she had past issues with the neighbor and that he previously spit on her car.
On Tuesday, the victim said she received a knock at her door. When she opened it, her neighbor was allegedly standing with a gun pointed directly at her. She told Officer S. Harris that he held the gun on her for about 5-seconds then started to laugh and walked off.
At this point, the culprit has not been arrested. The case was labeled as an “Aggravated Assault.”
I don’t know, is it a sign of progress that people have stopped using their guns for shooting each other?
