Published

On Thursday, two shootings took place in Washington, D.C. that saw two people die and seven get injured.

The next day authorities were searching for a pair of suspects from one of the attacks who were likely armed with rifles.

During the first attack, one man was slain and five other people were wounded in a drive-by shooting. Two of the wounded were left in critical condition. Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Emerman claims that the victims were standing in the courtyard of an apartment complex in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.

The two suspects were spotted driving in a Nissan sedan and used an “AK style rifle,” according to a police statement.

“Detectives are interviewing witnesses and looking for camera footage,” Emerman commented.

About 30 minutes after the first shooting, three people were shot in the northeastern part of D.C. One person was killed in this incident. However, there was no sign from the start that these two shootings were connected, per NBC reports.

On Twitter, DC Police confirmed that the second shooting took place in the 1400 block of Rhode Island Avenue south of the Brookland neighborhood.

Recent waves of mass shootings have made gun policy the #1 political debate in America.

Although there are massive calls for gun control, legislation may not be a cure-all for places like Washington, D.C.

After all, D.C. features some of the toughest gun control laws in the nations such as universal background checks.

Despite these laws on the books, criminals still find ways to acquire firearms and commit heinous acts of violence.

For many politicians, this does not register and they continue to push for more anti-gun measures that inevitably leave the law-abiding defenseless and the criminals at a major advantage.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
