Barbara Boxer: Gun Laws Work… Just Look At California
Seriously. With a straight face, she said it.
A day after California suffered a terrorist attack that killed 14 people and wounded at least as many, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) uttered one of the most ludicrous things that has ever passed a politicians lips.
See for yourself:
“Sensible gun laws work,” Boxer said. “We’ve proven it in California. And we’re not going to give up.”
According to The Blaze, a spokesperson made an attempt to clarify her remark by saying she doesn’t think the current state laws are enough and wants “national laws.”
The Blaze also notes that the long-time California senator spoke on the Senate floor on Thursday issuing a plea for more gun control laws and said she hasn’t heard a “persuasive argument” yet as to why anyone would need a high-powered rifle.
“These weapons of war,” Boxer said. “They just don’t belong on our streets and in our communities.”
Not that California has that problem. Right, Mrs. Boxer?
