EDIT: Since the post, four more people have confirmed injured in the tragic shootings in California. This brings the total to 35. 35 reasons against gun control.
Tragically yesterday there was a shooting yesterday in San Bernadino, California at a holiday party being hosted at a government center. Being California this means it was a de facto gun free zone.
14 people are already confirmed dead.
17 people are confirmed injured and the news is reporting that some are critical so the number might go up.
14 + 17 = 31
31 persons killed or wounded celebrating the holidays with no—legal—way to defend themselves. It is unclear how many people were at the party but if one person had a gun, the outcome could have been a lot different. Just another example of how gun control kills people. Murder is a crime. Criminals do it anyway.
Some are suggesting this was terrorism. While there are no “known” links at this time, ISIS is celebrating the shootings carried out by at least one devout Muslim. We live in a heightened state of alert. It is time for true common sense approach: let Americans defend themselves.
Yesterday we had all the proof we need that gun control does not work—sadly 31 reasons.
