Another Shooting in a Safe Zone in California
Once again, we've seen the tragic impact of making certain places OFF LIMITS to guns. Another shooting in San Bernadino California, and elementary school, where guns are, of course, not allowed.
When will California wake up?
The state just passed last year a sweeping group of draconian unconstitutional laws governing guns and ammunition that will DO NOTHING to prevent violence or stop "bad guys" from getting guns. We have stated over and over again that the statistics don't lie. In those places where gun control laws are strict and gun free zones exist, more people die than in those places where the average person is allowed to carry a gun. Bad guys are cowards. They seek out places where they will not be challenged. Theatres in Paris, schools in California, nightclubs in Florida.
Statistics DO NOT LIE. In Salt Lake City Utah, around 1 of every 3 people carries a gun. They have crime in Salt Lake, but the number of shooting deaths is low per 100,000 people at a rate of 8 or 10 per 100,000 people. Compared to Chicago, where they have some of the most strict gun laws in the nation, which has a murder rate of almost 30 people per 100,000 residents. So when you have super strict gun laws, the rate of murder is almost 3X those places that allow guns to be freely owned AND CARRIED by responsible citizens.
It really is that simple.
