Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 1 Oct 16,No change in gun culture
The recent Washington Mall shooting that killed five people in the US would have been traumatic for residents (‘US mall shooting suspect in custody’, Gulf News, September 26). Although the shooting was not organised by known terror groups, the motive behind it was not clear. Police arrested one 20-year-old, of Turkish origin. This incident must be condemned and I hope the authorities come out with more information on this. Despite many shooting incidents in malls and schools in the US, they are not keen to eradicate their gun culture, which is sad. I pray for the victims and the grieving family members.
