Navy Yard Shooting Prompts DC Congresswoman to Relfect on 9/11 and 'All These Guns Loose in the Society

Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) after Monday’s mass shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard launched into an odd aside about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and -- Americans’ access to firearms?

“We’ve not had a day like this since 9/11 for good reasons,” Rep. Norton said.

She added her “prayers” are with the victims of the terrible attack.

“We cannot know what happened here yet. But I hope that we will reserve judgment until a thorough investigation is done,” she said.

One reporter asked her to explain the 9/11 comment. She responded by saying the two don’t really compare.

But then she added this: “There is no indication this was a terrorist event. But I hope we all understand that with all these guns loose in the society, it doesn’t take a terrorist to do what was done here today.”
