Yet another kid killed…

Anyone who has been paying attention to the local news this year knows that DC has seen way too many kids die this year as a result of gun violence. The latest victim was a 15 year old girl, Myesha Lowe, who was sitting in a car with friends in a residential neighborhood in NE when a car pulled up next to them and started shooting. One of the other kids killed this year was sitting watching tv in her aunt’s living room; another was sitting on a porch when a stray bullet wounded her. There have been a lot of kids hurt this year in DC.
Compare this to the mayor’s push in the last year or so to encourage more people to move into the district. Incidentally, I believe his focus is on attracting young singles and empty nesters.

    Guns of all sorts are pretty much illegal in DC. See how much good it’s done?
