D.C. Mayor On Reason For Gun Control: “I Don’t Like Guns”

posted on November 26, 2015

In response to comments from District of Columbia Police Chief Cathy Lanier about the need for civilians to “take out” an active shooter in an emergency, Mayor Muriel Bowser clarified that she is not considering loosening the District’s strict gun laws. “I don’t like guns,” she explained to cheers at a local press conference, according to the Washington Examiner

That Mayor Bowser finds it acceptable to use her emotional attitude toward guns as justification for impinging on her constituents’ constitutional right to bear arms—and that she is publicly applauded for it—shows that D.C.’s leadership doesn’t consider itself accountable to the people who live and work in the area. Why do the mayor’s likes and dislikes determine whether they get to live safely?
