Washington Post Props Up Failed California Gun Controls After Lunar New Year Celebration Shooting

What if someone in the Monterey Park ballroom had a gun and could shoot the murderer BEFORE he killed 11 people.  Per the Washington Post and the Left, they prefer 11 dead, then savings lives with a gun.

“Breitbart News pointed out that the FBI figures mean California was number one in gun control and number one in “active shooter incidents” at the same time.

The Post also failed to mention that the city of Los Angeles alone witnessed 382 murders in 2022, according to Crosstown. Moreover, on July 12, 2022, ABC 7 explained that Los Angeles homicides “hit the highest level in over a decade” during the first six months of 2022.

But the Post is propping up California gun control.

The Post lied and people died—and they are proud of it.  They literally want more dead people.

Washington Post Props Up Failed California Gun Controls After Lunar New Year Celebration Shooting

AWR HAWKINS, Breitbart,  1/23/23 

The Washington Post propped up California’s failed gun controls after a Saturday night shooting at a Lunar New Year celebration in Monterey Park resulted in ten deaths.

According to the Post, California has passed significant amounts of gun control, the strength of which is undercut by loser laws in other states and the fact that Americans believe they have a right to possess firearms:

California’s patchwork of gun laws has been judged the strongest in the nation by the gun-control advocacy group Giffords.

But Saturday night’s horrific mass killing at a Monterey Park dance hall shows how the state’sstrict gun laws are incapable of fullypreventing gun violence in a country where gun ownership is widely considered a constitutionally protected right, firearms move freely between states with vastly different regulations and gun-control measures are dotted with exceptions.

The Post also noted, “The Public Policy Institute of California, a nonpartisan organization that studies the state’s policies and politics,found the state’s death rate from large-scale shooting incidents from 2019 to 2021 was below the national average.”

But the Post omitted the FBI’s figures which show California was number one in “active shooter incidents” in 2021.

Breitbart News pointed out that the FBI figures mean California was number one in gun control and number one in “active shooter incidents” at the same time.

The Post also failed to mention that the city of Los Angeles alone witnessed 382 murders in 2022, according to Crosstown. Moreover, on July 12, 2022, ABC 7 explained that Los Angeles homicides “hit the highest level in over a decade” during the first six months of 2022.

But the Post is propping up California gun control.

  1. There is no way to stop criminals from getting guns.

    This is proven with the now the computer age.

    The cartels import them. The gangs print them. The Chinese Communist flood them illegally.

    Now how are you going to stop them by taking them from honest citizens?

  2. Additional….the State now wants to stop the sale of body armor….

    Sure why not … I often walk rental property at night….to protect tenants….why would I need body armor.
