California Has Been Consumed by America’s Addiction to Guns

Aafter a week of mass shootings, one after another after another, California is hit.

Firstly, six family members in the rural community of Glen Central in Co Goshan. Among the victims, shot in the head, was a sixteen-year-old and her infant child. Then, a gunman killed 11 people and injured nine others celebrating Chinese New Year at a dance studio in Monterey Park, near downtown Los Angeles. A day later, a disgruntled employee shot up two mushroom farms in a picturesque coastal town Half Moon Bay, barely half an hour out of San Francisco. Later that night, another gunshot killed one person and wounded seven others Oak Country.

Four mass shootings in a row, and this is in a state with some of the toughest gun laws in the country. California has universal background checks, laws aimed at taking guns out of the hands of those convicted of domestic violence, red flag laws that allow police to confiscate weapons from those deemed a serious danger to themselves or for others, waiting periods for gun purchases, and a variety of other gun control measures.

Last year, the California legislature passed a bill, SB 1327, based on a Texas law that allowed private citizens to sue anyone who helped a woman obtain an abortion. California’s version allows private citizens to sue people involved in the manufacture and distribution of automatic weapons and ghost guns, both of which are banned in California. Governor Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law in July.
