The state of California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. So why aren’t they working?
We have seen two catastrophic mass shootings in as many days in the once great state of California. A State which, as mentioned, has some of the strictest gun restrictions in the nation.
Gun control advocates will tell you that it’s because the laws are not strict enough. They’ll say that we need background checks for all gun purchases, a ban on assault weapons, and a prohibition on high-capacity magazines.
However, the problem is not that we don’t have enough gun laws, it’s that we don’t enforce the ones we have. In 2015, there were 22,000 guns stolen in California. That’s an average of 60 guns per day.
Where do you think those guns are going? They’re ending up in the hands of criminals who use them to commit crimes. And it’s not just guns that are being stolen, it’s ammunition too. In 2014, there was a major shortage of ammunition in California because so much was being stolen.
Criminals were breaking into stores and stealing hundreds of boxes of ammo at a time … because that is what criminals do … by definition … they BREAK THE LAW …
