. . .in a "Gun Free Zone." No surprises here; this is DC we're talking about.
My heart goes out to the families who lost a loved one. I couldn't agree more that the murderous perpetrators are animals; and the grieving mother is spot on that her daughter wasn't the one in the wrong place at the wrong time.
These grieving parents are the community members that should have the means of protecting their neighborhood from the violent thugs. Unfortunately, they have all signed away their rights, so they do not have the means, and they can't count on justice being executed on the matter. Their hands are tied.
I wouldn't be surprised if those responsible for the latest mass shooting get twenty years or less. We already know that at least one of them has been through the revolving door many times before. This cycle will continue until the DC residents wake up and take control of the situation with their own hands.
