A gunman stormed into Washington Navy Yard with large assault weapons and fired upon authorities and civilians inside the facility on Monday, Sept. 16.

One of the gunman was identified as 34 year old Aaron Alexis, who had served in the Navy and received multiple medals for his services during his enlistment. He had been arrested twice recently. The other gunman is still at large, and police have been searching the area for him while nearby buildings and schools are in lockdown.

President Barrack Obama was planning to talk about the financial crisis on Sept. 16, but instead talked about the events that happened only four miles from the nations capital.

Obama said, “We will do what ever we can do make sure that who ever carried out this cowardly act is held responsible.”

As this is yet another mass shooting the country has endured over recent years, citizens can expect to see raised security around the nation, especially in the capital, where the Navy Yard is located.

The tragedy also has an effect on Carlmont students, specifically their sense of safety.

When asked if she still feels safe after so many mass shooting lately, junior Kennedy Rothenbuescher said, “No, I honestly do not feel safe anymore.”

Carlmont student’s opinions on the event all conveyed the same sadness, as Sophomore Nathan Kinsey said, “It is a tragedy and will probably bring up more gun control issues.”

We can only hope as a country not to see more events like these as we continue on into the future.
