The shooter, a male, entered a building complex in Orange County around 5:30pm Wednesday evening and was able to murder four people and wound another before law-enforcement officers arrived on the scene and neutralized him.
Among the victims was “a child,” according to reports.
The other mass shootings — a mass shooting being defined as an incident in which at least four victims were shot, not including the shooter; or in which four or more victims are murdered with firearms — during the Biden administration included:
- The Atlanta spa shootings that left eight people dead;
- The Boulder, Colorado, attack that left 10 people dead; and
- The Maryland attack that left four people dead.
During 2020, the fourth year of President Donald Trump’s first term, there wasn’t a single mass shooting.
California is among the most gun-restrictive states, and has implemented:
- Universal background checks;
- A ban on so-called assault weapons;
- A 10-day waiting period on gun purchases;
- An Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO), or red flag, law;
- A limit on the number of guns a law-abiding citizen can purchase in a given month; and
- Limits on the sale of ammunition.
As the anti-gun media ramps up its demands for more gun controls following this event, The New American will keep its readers posted.
