In Brief:

Following a mass shooting incident at a shopping mall in Wisconsin, the mayor issued a statement claiming his gun free zone would have worked, if the shooter had just obeyed the signs. 

The Background:

Last week, eight people were shot in a shopping mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. According to the Los Vegas Sun, none of the injuries were life-threatening. The police chief stated that authorities believe the incident was a disagreement between two groups of people. 

The mayor of Milwaukee released a statement addressing the incident, stating that the area and the mall remained safe, and claimed that if the anti-gun rules had been followed, no one would have been hurt. He reaffirmed the importance of following a strict no-gun policy, saying that if the shooter had obeyed the rules of the shopping mall, there would have been no incident. 

Notable Quotes:

“Guns have no place in shopping malls or other places in which crowds of people gather. Mayfair has a strict no-gun policy. If the shooter had complied with that policy, no one would have been hurt yesterday.” - Mayor Dennis McBride, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
