On December 3–the day after Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik carried out California jihad in San Bernardino–Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said “sensible gun control works,” and she cited the example of California to prove it.
Townhall’s Guy Benson reported Boxer’s assertion in a tweet, quoting her as saying, “Sensible gun laws work. We’ve proven it in California.”
This quote comes one day after other Democrats–President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O’Malley–also seized on the San Benardino attack to push gun control and, in the case of O’Malley, bash the NRA. In fact, Clinton and O’Malley both tweeted for more gun control before the gunman and gunwomen had even been identified.
Clinton tweeted: “I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence.”
I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now. -H https://t.co/SkKglwQycb

O’Malley tweeted: “Horrifying news out of San Bernardino. Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.”

Breitbart News reported that California already has expanded background checks, which is the “gun safety” law Democrats have been demanding at the federal level for years. But the law was ineffectual in preventing the attack by Farook and Malik.
