Victims of Bartow mass murderer still in mourning – The Ledger

BARTOW – Two decades have passed since gunshots shattered the night at Bartow’s Erie Manufacturing plant, robbing George and Mary Ann Patisso of their only son and leaving Phil and Nicoletta Dosso inconsolable.

It was three days shy of George Patisso Jr.’s 28th birthday.

His brother-in-law, Frank Dosso, 35, had planned to celebrate his twin daughters’ 10th birthday that evening – Dec. 3, 1997 – and was bringing home Chinese carryout for dinner.

Diane Dosso Patisso, 28, had stopped by Erie to pick up her brother and husband, who worked together in the family business, before meeting with her parents for the birthday party.

Erie partner George Gonsalves, 69, anticipated locking up after everyone had left.

Then, the gunshots.

Two hours later, the Dossos would discover the bloodied bodies of their son, daughter, son-in-law and business partner in the company’s offices. The 911 call that

Christian Father Still Grateful After Daughter Killed In Texas Church Mass Shooting

The Texas community stricken by the mass shooting at Sutherland First Baptist Church says it is still finding reasons to be thankful during the holiday season. 

Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his 14-year-old daughter Annabelle Pomeroy in the November shooting that left 26 people dead, said there is a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving, like the support provided to the Texas town in the days after the tragedy.

“Is it going to be difficult? Yes, but you know what? I am celebrating this great country that God has blessed us with on Thanksgiving, and also celebrating the birth of the savior at Christmas,” Pomeroy told NBC News.

Other churches in the community and people across the world have reached out to Pomeroy to provide support. A local pastor, Paul Buford, wrote a special sermon focused on grief

A Month After Las Vegas Mass Shooting, Congress Still Hasn’t Moved on Bump Stock Regulation

Many lawmakers, both Democratic and Republican, agreed one response to the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history should be to ban the sale of bump stocks — but a month later, they are still legal and neither Congress nor the agency in charge of controlling such devices appear to be taking steps to outlaw them.

A bump fire stock, also known as a bump stock, is a device that enables semi-automatic rifles to fire more rapidly, similar to automatic weapons. Twelve of them were found on firearms recovered from the gunman’s Las Vegas hotel room.

It’s Been One Month Since The Las Vegas Shooting And Bump Stocks Are Still Legal

But momentum for a legislative fix was soon ― and some gun control advocates argue deliberately ― kneecapped when the National Rifle Association, the powerful gun lobby, issued a statement urging the administration to address the matter via existing regulations and not law. Under such a scenario, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or the ATF, would close the loophole via a regulatory change.

‘American Horror Story’ Edited Mass Shooting Scene Airs … But the Gore’s Still Online

Producers for “American Horror Story” made good on their promise to edit a mass shooting scene for this week’s episode, but the carnage can still be seen online.

FX aired “Mid-Western Assassin” Tuesday, and you can see they significantly pared it down to avoid showing anyone actually getting shot. You mostly just hear the victims.

The decision to make major cuts to the shooting scene came on the heels of the Vegas mass shooting. However, viewers can still use FX’s video-on-demand feature to watch the unedited version of the scene … where at least 3 people are shot onscreen.

As Las Vegas Investigation Continues, Mass Shooting Motive Still Elusive

Las Vegas police say they have found the car they had been looking for as part of the investigation into the deadly mass shooting that gunman Stephen Paddock launched from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino, killing at least 58 people and wounding hundreds more as they attended a country music concert.

Police said Thursday they found the Hyundai Tucson while executing a search warrant in Reno at the home Paddock shared with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley. It was not immediately clear, however, if authorities found the vehicle Thursday or earlier in the week.

A GoFundMe account for the victims and the families of the Las Vegas mass shooting has reached about $9.5 million in contributions and will likely grow into the tens of millions of dollars, according to Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak in a report in the Las Vegas Sun.
