California has rigid gun control laws, as you all well know. Yet the anti-gun crowd screams for more control after incidents like this. But the sad fact is, this and the other recent shootings prove that rigid gun control does NOT work. It’s not “common sense” in any sense at all. Liberals can’t see the issue – they are blinded by the media and the anti-gun thought process.
