In an article by Mercury News: California's tough gun laws could not prevent East Oakland tragedy, Brady Bunch representative Amanda Wilcox had this to say:
"It wasn't a failure of laws, I just don't see how our gun laws could have stopped something like that."
The 'trail blazing' state of California has the strictest gun control laws of all the states in the nation, and the laws couldn't prevent a school shooting. That tells me that gun control doesn't work. What could have worked is if those victims had the opportunity to properly defend themselves instead of peaceful resistance. When Goh said y'all get in line, i'm gonna kill ya, some folks were put on notice, when he started shooting people, everyone was put on notice. Yeah, someone couldn't have prevented at least some deaths. There would have been no confusion of who the killer was.
That is all.
