Deadly Assault Vehicle Slaughters Five People...politicians refuse to ban such weapons

Weapons like this do not require background checks...any nutcase can get one!

5 killed in Florida interstate crash
Five killed, one hurt in crash off I-95
Five people, including three teenagers, were killed Saturday in Riviera Beach after their car was hit by another vehicle that sped through an interstate exit ramp, authorities said.
The driver of a 2008 Mercedes is believed to have been speeding as he exited Interstate 95 and ran a red light about five miles north of West Palm Beach shortly after midnight, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Tim Frith said.
Jabari Kemp’s vehicle slammed into a 1994 Lexus carrying five people, the youngest 14 and the oldest 22. The impact ejected four people from the car. Only one was wearing a seat belt, Frith said.
Four of the people in the Lexus were dead at the scene. A fifth died at a nearby hospital.
Killed in the crash were Makita Campbell, 14; Shonteria Grimsley, 17; Jason Mahlung, 21; and Christina Oliver Joseph, 17, all of Riviera Beach, in South Florida. A 22-year-old man also killed in the crash has not been identified.
Kemp, 21, was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital with injuries that were serious but not life-threatening. Frith said troopers will conduct an investigation. No charges have been filed. Frith said Kemp’s blood also will be checked for any indication of drugs or alcohol.
