Gun Control Fail: Two Killed, Seven Wounded in ‘Mass Shootings’ in D.C.

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.
