Miami - Two people were killed and a third critically wounded when a firefight broke out at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Florida, the Orlando Sentinel reported on Sunday.

Lieutenant Doug Seely, a spokesperson for the police in the town of Winter Springs north of Orlando, told the Sentinel that a confrontation in the parking lot preceded the shooting.

It was not immediately clear how many shooters were involved. Several arrests were made and weapons were confiscated, Seely said.

But a shooter or shooters opened fire on a motorcycle club members as they gathered for a charity fundraiser, the paper reported.

Seely said the authorities suspect all three victims were members of the Warlocks motorcycle club.

      please! We are talking about the US here, why do feel the need to always compare SA with other country's? Gun control can work in the US like in England oh but hey your reasoning is sound or not

    Gun control boils down to this: My right to defend myself trumps your right to a false sense of security.

    The best and safest country to live in where 4 presidents were assassinated and 9 more suffered the attempt.
