California Dem Says State’s Gun Control Laws Work ONE DAY AFTER SHOOTING (VIDEO)
California Democrat Barbara Boxer is convinced that her state’s ‘common sense’ gun laws are working, despite the fact that terrorists were able to obtain guns in her state and carry out the terror attack in San Bernardino.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Boxer: ‘Sensible Gun Laws Work, We’ve Proven It in California’
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) said she and other progressives had “proven it in California” that “sensible gun laws work” during a press conference one day after the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, that left 14 dead.
Boxer, after making remarks about gun control legislation alongside fellow California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D.) and other Democrats Thursday, took the podium back from Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) to respond to a reporter who said Congress had not passed gun control laws after mass shootings in the past and wondered why this massacre’s aftermath would prove any different.
“When you ask such a question, you’re basically saying, ‘Why bother?’” Boxer said. “That is not what leaders do. They don’t just hide because you may not win the vote. You keep doing it. I’ll give you one statistic. In California, since the ’90s, we have passed a number of important gun safety laws, and over that period of time, we’ve had a reduction in gun violence of 56 percent.

Isn’t it strange how criminals and terrorists are able to obtain guns despite laws that say they’re not allowed to?
