'Gun-Control' Fails in California ... and We Lose

Sociologists and criminologists rendered their verdict. 'Gun-control' in California doesn’t work. In hindsight, that should have been obvious. Unfortunately, these failed laws will probably not be rescinded by lawmakers nor be overturned by judges. Since Californians won’t change things at the ballot box, they are going to have to vote with their feet to restore their rights.

What we now know about 'gun-control'-

This recent report on 'gun-control' was issued by a number of academics, including the researcher funded by the state of California in their Violence Prevention Research Program. This is hardly a right wing policy piece purchased by gun manufacturers. The report compared data from California with data from other states that did not enact 'gun-control' laws. Rates of homicide with a gun and suicide did not decrease in California compared to those other states used as a control group. There was no significant difference despite the 'gun-control' laws being in place for more than a quarter century. Mandated background checks for all firearms purchases didn’t reduce crime or suicide. Prohibiting people with misdemeanor offenses from buying guns didn’t reduce crime or suicide in California. .......

Left driven California has little or no respect for people's gun rights - working hard to ensure that the average law abiding citizen has negligible recourse to self defense. Needless to say, if you happen to be a member of the elite or wealthy then of course as 'special cases', generous treatment is probably the norm. Criminals must love the restrictive environment.
