Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said Huu Can Tran allegedly used a “semiautomatic assault pistol.”
California has the most stringent gun control laws of any state in the Union.
The state put universal background checks and an “assault weapons” ban in place in the 1990s.
Since the 1990s, Democrat lawmakers have tightened the “assault weapons” ban and have added gun registration requirements, a limit on the number of guns a law-abiding citizen can buy each month, a “high capacity” magazine ban, a red flag law, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, restrictions on firearm sales advertising, a ban on campus carry for self-defense, a ban on K-12 teachers being armed for classroom defense, background checks for ammunition purchases, and a requirement that all ammunition be purchased from state-approved, in-state ammunition vendors, among other controls.
