Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
California has every gun control the Democrats are pushing at the federal level.

California has confiscatory red flag laws, universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, a ten-day waiting period on gun purchases, a requirement that would-be gun buyers first secure a firearm safety certificate from the state, a limit on the number of guns a person may purchase in a month, a minimum purchase age of 21 years for long guns and handguns, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, and numerous ammunition controls. Moreover, the Gilroy Garlic Festival was a gun-free zone.

Does it matter that the majority of the left has been pushing that laws one does not agree with are optional? Or that the truth is, 4 times as many people are killed each year by knives than "Assault Rifles", more people are killed with blunt objects than "Assault Rifles", but people don't want to have that conversation.

It's time that we we begin to discuss the mental health aspect behind all this much more. It's time that we go back to teach our children to value human life so that this never happens again. You can't tell me that the violence surrounding video games, and movies has not had a negative impact on our society. It absolutely has and it's time we make the changes needed on that front.
