We're #1

Heckuva job, California:
As if White Settlement didn’t do enough to undermine gun control’s arguments all on its own, there’s another bit of information that shows us just how useless gun control really is.

You see, the big argument is that gun control is needed to prevent mass shootings. While White Settlement showed us the wisdom of law-abiding armed citizens in a place, anti-gunners are still pushing forward with their claim that we need gun control to prevent things like that from happening at all.

Of course, if that were true, California would have fewer mass shootings than anywhere else. However, they actually led the nation in 2019... (boldface mine--Darren)

California’s mass killing problem–not all were shootings, to be fair, and many are probably more gang-related than anything else–should serve as ample evidence that the problem isn’t guns.

Anti-gun voices will automatically jump to the claim that California’s problems stem from pro-gun states where firearms are obtained and smuggled into California. Of course, this line of reasoning never explains why those states don’t reach that level of violence themselves. Funny how that shakes out, isn’t it?
