Gray: Shooting Renews Need For D.C. Gun Control Laws
D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) said today's shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum unfortunately highlights the need for the District to fight for its gun control laws.
House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) announced yesterday that Congressional leaders were giving up efforts to get a D.C. voting rights bill approved because city leaders would not accept an amendment that would do away with the District's gun-control laws.
Gray said the city, as the nation's capitol, can draw armed extremists and "makes people uniquely vulnerable."
"It's hard for me to realize why anyone would want to make this an easier place to have guns," Gray said. "If anything, it should be more secure."
