Significantly, these days, the shooting incident is becoming commonplace in America. The DC Metropolitan Police Chief told media that officers seized more than 2,000 illegal guns this year, an increase of about 800 from last year. Meanwhile, officials announced on Wednesday that New York City and the state’s famous Times Square and other public places would soon ban the carrying or even concealment of firearms, according to a report by the ‘ANI.
The Washington Times reported that Mayor Eric Adams said a “sensitive place” sign would be put up in Times Square in New York City, reading “Guns are not allowed here.” Adams said signs would tell people that licensed gun owners and other people with guns cannot enter unless they are specifically permitted by law.
