Freebase

  1. Shooter

    A shooter is a neologism for an alcoholic mixed drink that contains one ounce of two or more spirits. Some shooters also have a non-alcoholic ingredient. They are generally drunk quickly, rather than being sipped. Shooters can be shaken, stirred, blended, layered, or simply poured. Shot glasses or sherry glasses are the usual drinkware in which shooters are served. They are most commonly served at bars, and some bartenders have their own "signature" shooter. The ingredients of shooters vary from bartender to bartender and from region to region. Two shooters can have the same name but different ingredients, resulting in two very different tastes.

Examples of shooter in a Sentence

  1. Summer Smith:

  2. Naeem Hussain:

  3. Claude Arnold:

    Defenders of sanctuary policies say they protect immigrants from deportation and reduce illegal immigrants ’ fear of cops. But critics, including Homeland Security Department officials say releasing illegal immigrant criminals inside the U.S. is dangerous. Claude Arnold, a retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations, said sanctuary advocates claim immigration enforcement is the exclusive responsibility of the federal government, however enacting laws like the California Trust Act, which dictates how the federal government can enforce the law, contradicts those claims and can be devastating consequences. The murder of 32-year-old Kathlene Steinle’s in June 2015 by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, is a prime example, Claude Arnold said. Steinle was shot dead while strolling on San Francisco’s Embarcadero with her father. The alleged shooter, a felon and five-time deportee, has pleaded not guilty to murder charges, claiming the shooting was an accident. Those responsible for releasing him not long before the shooting despite a federal request to detain him for deportation should also have consequences, Claude Arnold said. When sanctuary jurisdictions like San Francisco County release criminals that officials know are in the U.S. illegally, and those criminals commit heinous crimes, those responsible should be federally prosecuted.

  4. Summer Smith:

    Mathew said that he froze. He didn't make a single move. He was afraid to look away. That if he ... did anything to make the shooter notice him, that he would be shot. So he just sat there, he's sitting there, watching the shooter execute people?

  5. Andrew Holmes:
