Bloombergia: 31 people shot citywide in 48 hours

In one of the bloodiest weekends in recent city history, 31 people were brutally shot in roughly 48 hours this weekend -- including three kids at a house party-turned-shooting gallery in The Bronx.
25 people had been shot as of Sunday night, but by early Monday morning, six more people were shot in three separate incidents in Brooklyn.
Four people were shot at 12:45 a.m. at what appeared to be a barbecue on East 54th Street. One of the victims, 18-year-old Tyrief Gary, has died. The other three are in stable condition.

Apparently, someone changed the title of the article from the unflattering "Bullet Fest in the Big Apple" to it's current "31 people shot citywide in 48 hours".

It appears that America's Mayor Against Guns has some housekeeping to do. Perhaps he should stop sending goon squads around the country to spy on gun shows and instead put some of those boots on his own streets.

UPDATE: It's now 46 people shot. Some just a few blocks from Bloomberg himself.

Clearly we need more gun control laws. [sarcasm]
