Because "gun free zones" are wildly inadequate gun control.

Did I miss something -- or did you make stuff up?
Trump looking like an out of control five year old in the news again, time to gin up the base ...

The only people that follow California's ultra strict gun control laws and abide by gun free zones are the LAW ABIDING CITIZEN. Criminals, gang members, and Illegal Aliens don't. It only disarms the law abiding that could possibly put a stop to these shootings.

The Left (Democrats) use these shooting to justify the disarmament of the Law Abiding. They know criminals won't comply. It is a move to control the law abiding only.

If it's going to be a gun free event, then at least have some armed security for these unexpected situations.

Listening to folks who were there talk about the event. Police responded quickly to the incident and they were able to react quickly. Apparently lots of police presence at the event, so 'gun free' for visitors but definitely not completely gun free.

State-by-state gun control is moronic. The Law Abiding are the ones who are not the problem by definition. The parents of kids who shoot themselves and each other because of their laziness are "law abiding".

There is a problem. A serious problem. It needs fixing. Period.

Not a hard prediction to make - they've been telling us the same thing every year, after every mass shooting, for decades now.
Kamala Harris is already celebrating this shooting.

Despite not knowing the status of the gunman, in addition to not knowing the status of victims or their numbers, Harris began urging Americans not to tolerate a “gun violence epidemic.”

She did not mention that California has every gun control the Democrats are pushing at the federal level.

The state has a confiscatory red flag law, an “assault weapons” ban, universal background checks, a ten-day waiting period on gun purchases, a requirement to secure a gun safety certificate from the state before buying a gun, a “good cause” requirement for concealed carry permit issuance, a requirement that ammunition purchases only purchase from in-state vendors who have been approved to sell ammunition, and a requirement that all ammo purchasers undergo a background check at point of sale.

Despite all these gun controls, groups like the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence likewise responded to the Gilroy attack with a gun control push before the facts were even in.
To be honest, it is violent gangs like Coalition that are responsible for much of the violence in this country.

You nailed it.

The news is already spreading this rumor, despite that NOT being what the person they interviewed said.
The person they interviewed said there may have been a second person involved, not a second shooter.

Default Libs: Did the CA gun laws prevent the shooting at Gilroy?

Another example of how restrictive gun laws do nothing to curb violence. The only thing that we know for sure that they do is to prevent citizens from defending themselves from crazies.

Look at where all the gun violence occurs- all in areas with very restrictive gun laws!

Note: criminals and lunatics don't obey the law.
