Gavin Newsom’s California is home to the most radical gun control measures of any state in America. It also wears crown for having the most shooting sprees. Correlation isn’t causation, but could the two be linked? Maybe all those gun control laws only serve to disarm the law-abiding while leaving the criminals free and emboldened to commit violence against the innocent.
On Friday evening, Newsom’s Golden State notched yet another “mass shooting” with nine wounded in one incident in San Francisco. Of course, with Harry Callahan long retired, the SFPD doesn’t have anyone in custody. And the good guys were unable to carry guns for personal defense. Because that might be dangerous.
It happened in San Francisco’s lovely Mission District . . .

Nine people were wounded in a mass shooting in San Francisco’s Mission District on Friday night in what police said appeared to be a “targeted and isolated” incident.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the shooting happened shortly after 9 p.m. during a party hosted by a clothing store near the intersection of 24th Street and Treat Avenue.
The San Francisco Police Department initially said that all of the victims were “expected to survive their injuries.” But a statement from the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital said one of the victims remained in critical condition as of Saturday afternoon.
Another was said to be in serious condition, four were in fair condition and three had already been discharged. The victims were eight men and one woman ranging in age from 20 to 34, the hospital said.
Police Chief William Scott called the violence “unacceptable.”
“People should feel safe to go out in San Francisco without fear of being victims of gun violence,” Scott said. “Our investigators are working diligently on this case, and we will have a visible police presence moving forward in the community where this occurred.”
Yes, people should be able to “feel” safe, but disarming good people will never allow for anything but “feelings” to enforce polite behavior. And Gavin Newsom wants to export this kind of “safety” to the rest of the nation through his doomed constitutional amendment.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the only thing that stops bad people with evil in their heart is a good guy with a gun.
