D.C. Parade Goes Wrong – Mass Stampede Reported!
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Mass shooting events have once again become one of the most prevalent fixtures on US news headlines. Deadly incidents in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, have inspired many people to debate whether there should be stricter rules and regulations in relation to the purchase, ownership, and use of firearms. Things got out of hand at one anti-gun march in Washington, D.C. over the weekend, when one man’s words led to a stampede.
While thousands of protesters were gathered in front of a stage at the March for Our Lives rally in the nation’s capital, one individual loudly exclaimed there had been a gunshot, according to reports. That caused dozens of individuals to momentarily panic and attempt to flee the scene. People rushed to jump over fences, and some individuals were pushed to the ground and trampled.
