An Associated Press (AP) column looking back on violence in 2019 notes that California has more gun control than any state yet witnessed the most “mass slayings” of any state.

The AP notes that most most slayings “barely became national news, failing to resonate among the general public because they didn’t spill into public places.” They point to the El Paso, Texas, shooting; the Dayton, Ohio, shooting, and others as examples of mass slayings that did make news and captured attention nationally.

They define such slayings “as when four or more people are killed excluding the perpetrator.” They report a total of 41 such slayings nationally in 2019, some of which were carried out with axes, knives, and other non-firearms, while 33 were firearm-related.

The AP reports that “California, with some of the most strict gun laws in the country, had the most, with eight such mass slayings.”

California has universal background checks, gun registration requirements, gun confiscation laws, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, an “assault weapons” ban, a one-handgun-a-month purchase limit, a ban on campus carry for self-defense, and a ban on teachers being armed to shoot back if under attack. They also require would-be gun buyers to acquire a safety certificate from the state before being allowed to make a gun purchase.

California has ammunition controls as well.

California Sucks. Last visited over 10 years ago, can't imagine how much worse it is now.

California is a very large state. Large portions of the state have changed very little. Its the communist infested, heavily populated areas giving the state such a bad name.

My Mother lives in Oroville.

Pretty country, not a fan of the people. (With one specific exception.)

They also have the most murders overall of any state pretty much every year(around 1600) but like you said they have a big population so dems like to scream that Alaska has the "most murders" with the total numbers usually under 50. I bet most of those murders come out of LA county....
