2019: California Holds Record for “Mass Slayings” – Despite Strict Gun Control

2019: California Holds Record for “Mass Slayings” – Despite Strict Gun Control
Help remove stubborn mature fat cells

Despite its strict gun control laws, the state of California had more “mass slayings” this year than any other state.

A “mass slaying” is a violent crime in which four or more people are killed excluding the perpetrator(s). Most mass slayings never make the news because they do not take place in public places.

This year, 211 people were killed in 41 mass slayings – more than any year since the 1970’s. Perpetrators used guns in most of the killings; 8 were conducted using knives and axes.

“The majority of the killings involved people who knew each other – family disputes, drug or gang violence or people with beefs that directed their anger at co-workers or relatives,” notes The Associated Press.

The state of California witnessed eight of the mass slayings, more than any other state.

This statistic gives ammunition (pun intended) to Second Amendment advocates who argue that gun control laws do not prevent gun violence. 

The Golden State has gun registration requirements, ammunition controls, universal background checks, confiscation laws, a 10-day waiting period for firearm purchases, a ban on assault weapons, and limits on how many guns a person can buy each month.

The state forbids concealed carry on campuses, even in the case of arming teachers for possible school shootings, and requires buyers to acquire safety certificates before purchasing a gun.

Despite all of these rules, criminals in California were able to perpetrate eight mass slayings this year.

When asked how to stop the violence, San Francisco resident Marc Coleman said, “Protect the homeland. Take care of ourselves where we’re suffering from, mentally and spiritually, and we’ll stop shooting each other.”

Starting January 1st, California residents will need to be 21 or older to purchase a semi-automatic rifle. Gun licensing and fees will go up and individuals banned from owning guns in any state will be blocked from purchasing them in California.

California is also gearing up to expand its gun-violence restraining order policy, a program that enables police to seize weapons from any person who has threatened violence, to workplaces and schools. Starting next month, anyone slapped with a gun-violence restraining order will be banned from purchasing firearms for five years.

Starting in 2021, California residents will not be allowed to purchase more than one semi-automatic rifle per month.

Author’s Note: Whether you use a gun or any other method, it always has and always will be possible to kill someone if you are willing to die for it.

The mass slayings and school shootings in the US are not the result of lax gun control laws, but rather a product of individual problems and societal function.

    Thank you Nancy Pelosi, Governor Newsom & Brown, Kamila, Harris, Barbara Boxer, Maxine waters, Diane Feinstin, and Adam Scliiff. I put the blame directly on these out of touch people who are all Democrats and have absolutely ruined the great State of California with their socialist leadership.

      And I might add that not only are these scalawags responsible for the failed gun laws they have to be so smug about their role in doing it. They should be ashamed that they are using this issue to further their own personal careers and fortunes rather than try and protect the California citizens who need the firearm protection and the federal government to help stem the illegals that quite often commit these mass killings.

      The Hollywhackjob mentality ruined CaliCommieMeccaJerusalemMexifornia and that type of crazy thinking no longer exists in just the southern part of the state, it permeated the Gay Bay region decades ago.

    As in the recent White Settlement Texas church incident the shooter was killed by other individuals who had permits less than 10 seconds from the time he chose to start shooting. Legal carry in any state should be allowed as the police are not everywhere all the time. They come in to write up reports and occasionally will get in a shoot out where things usually go badly for the police and the innocent. Those that are psychopathic killers and are not killed out right by their very own actions should be considered to give up all their rights for appeal and should all be executed by hanging within 30 days of the killers rampage.

    Being the fact that California is a Democrat Ran State with massive homelessness and the fact that these Democrat Politicians just do not care at all and have not done their jobs because they are obsessed about getting rid of the greatest President in all American history is the main reason why the State of California is the murder capital of the world. Remember whenever there is a Democrat in charge of any City, State or Country everything goes to Shit.

    When there is an urgent need for police, they are but a moment away. A moment in the cosmos could be a hundred billion years.
