California has every gun law that the Democrats have pushed on the federal level. But none of them prevented John Earnest, 19 years of age, from opening fire at the Chabad Congregation in Poway.
California, through Red Flag Laws, has universal background controls, firearms registration requirements and firearms confiscation orders. The State requires former arms owners to obtain certification for gun safety first by the state and then requires a 10-day waiting time for all arms buys, according to Breitbart News.
They also have a purchase limit of one handgun a month and a minimum age of 21 years in all arms purchases, whether long arms or handguns. The carrying of campuses is prohibited,K-12 teachers are not allowed to be armed in school for self-defense, and the issuance of covert carriage permits is restricted by “good cause” requirements.
In addition, California has a ban on “attack weapons.” However, CNN reports that the Poway attacker of Chabad used a “AR-type assault weapon.”
Breitbart News reported on December 9, 2018 that California’s firearms homicides increased 18 per cent during 2014-16, despite the adoption of the law on weapons control.
President Trump on Friday delivered the speech at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual convention. He said: “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”
