California gangs are getting more and more guns to use for their dirty work, and the state’s so-called “universal” background check law isn’t slowing them down a bit.
According to a report on KABC, southern California law enforcement rounded up 15 suspects in a gang-related burglary ring that they say was responsible for stealing from thousands of homes.
According to the report, “The gang members were given goals, officials said: Break into homes and come back with at least $5,000 and a weapon every single day.” And, according to the report, they were quite successful, striking homes four or five times a week for a total of more than 5,000 burglaries.
In the meantime, California politicians are trying to make it more difficult for law-abiding Californians to own the firearms needed to protect themselves from these violent criminals. Go figure.
