Regarding those who hate on California - I’m not one of them. It is part of the US. I spent 30 years in the US Army; my patriotism isn’t restricted to certain states. I love my country and I love California.

With that said...in 2017 it had the second highest number of gun fatalities, just behind TX (which I also love). I’m not big on “per capita” rates; I look at total numbers. Presumably, regardless of the number of citizens, draconian gun laws should result in a remarkably low fatality rate, REGARDLESS of population. Why? Because the state cannot control the number of state citizens, but through legislation it CAN control the number of guns.
