Posted on 12/09/2018 10:56:01 AM PST by rktman
California, a state with every gun control imaginable, witnessed an 18 percent rise in firearm homicides from 2014 to 2016.
This rise in firearm homicides comes despite the fact that Democrats, gun control groups, and the establishment media constantly claim that states with the strictest gun controls see lower rates of violence and death.
California has universal background checks, gun registration requirements, red flag laws (i.e., Gun Violence Restraining Orders), a ten-day waiting period for gun purchases, an assault weapons ban, a one-gun-per-month limit on handgun purchases, a minimum firearm purchase age of 21, a ban on campus carry, a good cause restriction for concealed carry permit issuance, and controls on the purchase of ammunition. The ammunition controls limit law-abiding Californians to buying ammunition from state-approved vendorsall of whom are in-state sellersand adds a fee to any ammunition bought online, also requiring that ammunition to be shipped to a state-approved vendor for pickup.

the lying left will claim it is working because ‘if they hadn’t enacted these gun confiscation laws, there would have been even more rise in gun crimes”
you can not win when arguing with liberals- they lie- period- and have all their bases covered by lies- ie climate change- no matter which way the climate goes, they will claim man is responsible for it-
They well and scream crime but the goal is disarming the American people.
Crime is just an excuse for more control.
Governments prefer unarmed peasants who are unable to challenge their authority.
Socialism fail: “We need to do it MORE..!’
Same with gun control.
California is rated “A” by whatever Nazi gun control front group they’re hiding behind lately. Makes you wonder what an “A” rating really means.
Unpossible since Gov. Moonbeam said it’ll save lives etc etc etc.
You win an argument with a liberal and they’ll call you a racist which tells you that you did win the argument.
illegals = drugs & gangs = shootings
Maybe it has something to do with the insane “sanctuary” policies that attract illegal alien invaders who want to murder US Citizens??? Half the state is illegal alien invaders from throughout the world. The majority of cal voters are self-loathing nitwits. Maybe they want to be murdered to end their worthless, miserable lives. They have EXTREME Stockholm-Syndrome.
You can also consider that in the United Kingdom, homicide and violent crime were at very low levels when one did not even require a police permit to legally acquire a standard shotgun (before 1967). As the laws there got even more strict during the 1980s and 1990s period, homicides and violent crimes continued to increase at rates far higher compared to before 1967.
“Diversity is our strength!”
The root cause of most crime committed with firearms is a huge population of human trash rather than the availability of guns.
I love tweaking my CA friends about how my folks get high cap mags and ammo delivered by FedEx right to their door.
100 years ago, our murder rates at the National average were low in spite of overall wide availability of firearms. Wonder what happened? I would say a big part is the rise of ineffectual parents.
Bingo. Fentanyl is killing nearly 7x as many people per year as gun homicides but barely hear anything from politicians about it.
Dems use Gun Control to lower the Surplus Population
You mean people are not taking their daily Prozac?
