US Gun Scourge Continues

Despite many appeals for something to be done to halt the scourge of gun crime in the USA in the wake of last December's school massacre at Sandy Hook, the phenomenon has claimed the lives of 12 more people at a Washington Navy Yard. Police later shot dead the attacker bringing to 13 the number of fatalities resulting from the incident.

For the US the incident marked the 'deadliest mass shooting since 20 children and six adults were killed at a Connecticut school in December.'

Despite undertakings by US President Barack Obama to curb the ease with which US citizens can access guns he 'has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency.'
