GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): Gun control laws do not work. Just look at the attack in Fresno, California. Disarmed law abiding citizens, any of the three victims, may have saved themselves if they were armed. California has universal background checks, which means anyone who wants to buy a firearm from anyone, must get a background check conducted. It requires guns to be registered with the state. There is an AR-15 style rifle ban, and a ban on high capacity magazines. Yet none of these laws stopped Ali Muhammad from carrying out his heinous attack. In fact, Muhammad used a .357 revolver and he was a felon, which means he faced a 100 percent gun ban. The end result, gun laws don’t stop a determined attacker. A good guy with a gun does. More proof, if you want to be safe, get trained, get armed and train yourself and practice. That is the bottom line. You look at all of these attacks, you look at California and all the gun laws, none of the gun laws would have prevented any of this from happening. But there is one common theme of what can prevent an attack like this from happening. That is you. An armed public. Good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns, that is fact.
