MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - The head of the Russian State Duma's committee for security and struggle against corruption, Irina Yarovaya, regards the latest tragic incident in the United States that claimed the life of a teenage boy as a response to some hotheads who demand Russia should introduce more liberal gun laws.
On Tuesday, sheriff's deputies in California shot and killed a 13-year-old boy after repeatedly telling him to drop what turned out to be a toy gun.
“This is a tragic but a very illustrative answer to those in our country who advocate wider spread of firearms,” Yarovaya told journalists.
“The US police act inconsiderately and demonstrate fear and incompetence, for which there is an explanation, though,” she said. “The problem is the number of incidents involving the use of weapons, particularly among teenagers, is extremely high. This is the reason for such phobias among the US law enforcers.”
“This case indicates that the only way to protect society is non-proliferation of firearms,” Yarovaya said.
