    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.

    Gun control has never and will never be about keeping people safe. It’s just about trying to control what people do
