The violence in Democrat-run cities across America continues, as a shooting spree resulted in death and injuries in the nation’s capital over the weekend.
Violence and gunshots rang out in the early morning hours of Sunday when at least three gunmen opened fire on a neighborhood block party, killing one and injuring at least 20, as NBC News reported.
Prohibited gathering ends in violence
Under current coronavirus-related restrictions, D.C. residents are prohibited from hosting gatherings of more than 50 people, but a social gathering in the southeast part of the city on Saturday soon swelled far beyond that number.
According to NBC News, an argument erupted between attendees, guns were drawn, and according to witnesses, at least three men fired their weapons.
Local police stated, “We have at least three shooters because we have at least three separate locations where…where gunshots were fired. And it’s my understanding that the shots went off simultaneously.”
Enough is enough
Democrats have nobody to blame but themselves for the lawlessness that is gripping far too many cities this summer.
First of all, the block party at issue never should have been allowed to expand beyond 50 attendees, given the current restrictions that are supposedly in place.
However, given the extreme lawlessness that has been allowed to run rampant in urban areas in recent months, it is doubtful that any of the particpants feared enforcement or legal percussions of any sort.
Actions have consequences
Democratic D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is now frustrated over the blatant disregard for the law that she is now witnessing, but she is among the leaders who have looked the other way and allowed the situation to fester.
In the aftermath of the incident, Bowser stated, “It’s very important that as a community we have zero tolerance for this activity, that we support the Metropolitan Police Department when they’re going to have to make very difficult decisions in breaking up these events.”
Given her own unwillingness to crack down on massive, violent anti-law enforcement protests earlier this year, this latest rash of violence and illegality in Bowser’s city could rightly be seen as an instance of reaping what you sow.
The more this type of unrest and discord continues, the more it plays right into Trump’s re-election effort, because Americans are finally seeing that the Democratic way of doing business simply does not work.
