Comet Ping Pong owner James Alefantis makes a brief statement outside his restaurant in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 6, 2016. The business reopened after Edgar Maddison Welch, from North Carolina, discharged his assault rifle at the popular Chevy Chase restaurant. Welch claimed he was there to investigate a fake news story on the internet about a child sex ring. (Photo by Nikki Kahn/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
