*** Heres a look at the state of gun regulations in California:
Raised the age for buying rifles and shotguns from 18 to 21.
Imposed lifetime bans on gun ownership for those convicted of domestic violence or involuntarily hospitalized for mental illness twice in a year.
Strengthened a law prohibiting multiburst trigger devices, including bump stocks.
Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed two other measures. One would have prohibited the purchase of more than one long gun a month. The other would have allowed teachers and employers to petition the courts to have guns confiscated from people who are a danger to themselves and others.
All firearm and ammunition dealers must obtain a state license. Private gun sales must be completed through a licensed firearms dealer, requiring a background check and mandatory waiting period. The state maintains permanent records of firearm sales.
In 2016, Governor Brown signed a law expanding the prohibition on assault weapons and regulating the sale of ammunition.
Firearms purchasers must pass a written test to obtain a Firearm Safety Certificate, and are limited to buying one handgun per month. There is a 10-day waiting period between applying to purchase a firearm and delivery.
Concealed firearms may be carried in public with a permit, but local law enforcement can deny permits.
In 2014, California passed what is commonly known as the red flag law, which allows family members or the police to request a gun violence restraining order temporarily prohibiting a person from purchasing or possessing firearms and ammunition. More than a dozen other states are considering similar measures.
In 2016, voters passed Proposition 63, a comprehensive package that requires a point-of-sale background check for ammunition purchases and bans large-capacity magazines.

Now we are seeing the result.
Murder, deaths, mayhem.
What did they expect?, when trying to emulate the laws of Chicago and other murder capitals of the USA?
Words on paper do not stop bullets.
None of which prevented the Thousand Oaks massacre.
But its all the NRAs fault. California is a gun free come in shooters zone.
Its not the guns, stupid.
If you want to commit mass murder, no law in the world is an impediment to such folks.
Liberals are constantly surprised by human nature.
And when they try to ban guns and maybe succeed when people get shot which they will the media will not carry it on their shows.
You are correct.
Woah,wait. I thought the law said that we were required to buy one handgun per month. Oh man, I was going broke.
Maybe they should pass a law against shooting people.
Shooter bought the gun legally and used an extended mag CA considers illegal.
Proof laws don’t stop anyone from committing mayhem if they set their mind to. If somehow he couldn’t get a gun then he would use a bomb or fire.
If laws did anything but discourage honest people from committing crimes then banning drugs would have succeeded.
