Gilroy Garlic Festival Is A Gun Free Zone

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) wasted no time politicizing the shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, tweeting the need to fight a "gun violence epidemic."

Harris sent the tweet out moments after the news of the active shooter had been reported, but no details had followed at that time. There was no news as to the status of the gunman or the number of victims, yet she jumped on the chance to push more gun control.

Another crucial fact Harris conveniently left out was the fact that California already has every gun control law she is pushing. Per Breitbart, the state already has an assault weapons ban, universal background checks, a gun safety certificate requirement, a "good cause" requirement before being issued a concealed carry permit and background checks for the purchase of ammo at the point of sale.
