I am so glad that DC's prohibitive laws on self-defense kept everyone safe.

Seriously though, condolences to the family and friends of the victim.

I am so glad that the NRA's insistence that everyone gets a gun has kept everyone safe.

Seriously though, condolences to the family and friends of the victim.
