And more mass killings to come. Lots more.
The gun laws of California[3][4] are some of the most restrictive in the United States.

Re: Gun Ban

BTW, it didn't take long to figure this out. The last mass shooting in MA was in 2000 as you mentioned. December. Earlier in the year, MA started the most stringent gun control laws in the nation.

HokieAl it is a fact the last mass shooting in Massachusetts took place in 2000. That is 17 years ago.
Your point that it's because of strict gun laws here was flawed logic. There's no correlation.

Not sure why you capitalized state. That's not how it appears. Maybe you're taking "state" literally meaning any one of the 50 states. I don't interpret it that way. I see it as a state of being, iow being in a state of freedom.
