7 out of the top 10 states with mass shootings as of August are Blue States. Is anyone surprised?
And most of the states that lead in mass shootings have strict gun laws. California having the strictest.
Governor Newsom signed new gun safety measures into law — strengthening the state’s public carry regulations, requiring microstamping on handgun cartridges to help trace guns used in crimes, keeping guns away from potentially dangerous individuals, enacting a first-in-the-nation effort to generate funds on the sale of bullets to improve school safety and gun violence intervention programs, and more.
California’s gun control works for who? 9 mass shootings up to April 16th. And it’s not just this year. From 1982 to 2023 California leads the nation in mass shootings. More than Texas and Floridan combined. How can that possibly be? One California loon claims that every single mass shooting was with a gun bought outside of California. SMH.
Now I’m sure that the Progressives who follow this website will say the answer is simple. Pass more gun control. How crazy is that? Obvious that states like California that have these laws, either don’t enforce them, or they just don’t work.
What’s the answer? First thing is to look at who and where the shootings are happening? In minority neighborhoods? If so you set up check points and increase police presence.
Hey Joe you own this. 150 mass shootings since January. The GVA tells us that we’re at 150 and counting. 50 since the Atlanta shootings. But hey Joe has a plan. More gun laws. Also we have this from CNN.
