AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News noted, “L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva released numbers showing a 95 percent increase in murders, a 40 percent increase in grand theft auto, a 7.8 percent increase in rape, a 12.9 percent increase in aggravated assault, and a 22 percent increase in arson.”
California is one of America’s most anti-gun states. According to Guns & Ammo magazine’s recent Best States for Gun owners rankings, California is ranked at a putrid 47th place. Similarly, California received an abysmal mark of 50th place for its concealed carry laws which are very statist in nature.
Hawkins listed a number of California’s draconian gun control laws:
The state’s gun controls include a red flag law, universal background checks, a 10-day waiting period on firearm purchases, firearm registration requirements, an “assault weapons” ban, a limit on the number of guns a law-abiding citizen can purchase in a month, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, a ban on K-12 teachers being armed for classroom defense, a ban on campus carry for self-defense, and numerous other controls.
