Four dead, five injured in Washington D.C. killing spree

In what has been described as the worst killing spree for the past 16 years, four are dead and five injured after a shooting on Tuesday.

The killings are believed to have started from the theft of a bracelet. The killers, who were later apprehended by Metro Police, had a number of weapons in the vehicle at the time of their arrest. Just prior to getting stopped, they thre an AK 47 out opf the window. The assault rifle is believed to have been used in at least one of the murders.

Surprisingly, a 14 year old boy was the driver of the “hit van”. Washington D.C. is one of the most difficult cities in the U.S. to try and carry a firearm legally, yet the criminals are totally unhindered by the Draconian laws.

The current relaxing of the law regarding gun ownership will not do much to address the matter of citizens being able to carry a weapon for either self-protection, or as in the case of Executive Protection; to protect one’s client, since weapons are only going to be allowed to be kept in the home, not to be carried in a concealed manner.

Does anyone else see something wrong with outlawing firearms which could be carried by trained, qualified and law-abiding citizens, when teenagers are running around killing people with AK 47 assault rifles?

If politicans were getting shot and killed, the laws might get ammended, but as long as the killings stay in the ghettos, the status quo will most likely remain undisturbed.

    Not surprisingly, many of DC's lawmakers have armed themselves or have armed security with them. Is it the fear of lawful handgun owners or criminals? Just as some businesses are too big to fail, I suppose some politicians are too powerful to become victims.
