While President Obama and Hillary Clinton have been touting the gun laws found in California, Colorado, and Oregon as the solution to mass public shootings, they ignore that the laws that they want to impose on the rest of the US failed to stop the crimes they claimed that they would stop in those states. Even worse, while the existing laws didn’t stop shootings of the very kind Clinton claims that they will stop, they use these failures to justify imposing similar laws on the rest of the country. Now Governor Jerry Brown, trying to divert attention from California's failed policies, is attacking neighboring states. From Fox News:
In wake of the San Bernardino massacre which left 14 dead earlier this week, California Gov. Jerry Brown went on the attack Saturday slamming neighboring states’ gun laws.
Brown told the Sacramento Bee that Nevada and Arizona are a “gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.” Brown was in France for climate talks and was noncommittal on whether to strengthen the state’s gun control laws.
“California has some of the toughest gun control laws of any state,” Brown said. “And Nevada and Arizona are wide open, so that’s a gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.” . . .
The weapons used in the atrocity committed by Sayed Riswan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were purchased legally in California. . . .
