D.C. Mayor, Police Chief Might Finally Be Onto Something

posted on September 10, 2015

Speaking of the District of Columbia, in a move that makes much more sense than further restricting gun ownership by law-abiding citizens, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier are calling for heightened attention on repeat violent offenders.

Lanier told the Washington Post that more than half of the suspects arrested in this year’s homicides had prior gun arrests in the District. She also said that 21 homicide suspects and 26 homicide victims were under court supervision, such as probation, at the time of the killings. Additionally, 10 homicide suspects and six homicide victims had faced prior charges in killings.

Consequently, Lanier is calling for heightened attention to how gun offenders with previous convictions or run-ins with the law are handled by police, courts, prosecutors and probation agents. “To take guns off the same person over and over and over again is just unacceptable,” Lanier told the Post.
