#Guncontrolnow Trends After Gilroy Shooting As People Point Out California Has Some Of The Most Restrictive Firearms Laws (Video Graphic)

NEWSWEEK.COM July 29, 2019 –  Calls for stronger gun control laws in the U.S. have flooded social media after three people were killed and at least 15 others injured in a mass shooting at a food festival in California.

The Gilroy Garlic Festival had been about to draw to a close on Sunday night when a gunman opened fire on festivalgoers.

Police shot the gunman dead shortly after he began firing. However, as of late Sunday evening, police were investigating reports that a second suspect could still be at large.

Video of the incident posted to social media shows festivalgoers running away from the scene, as a woman in the video can be heard asking: “What’s going on…Who’d shoot up a garlic festival?”

In a statement, California Governor Gavin Newsom said the incident was “nothing short of horrific,” while President Donald Trump took to Twitter to urge people to “be careful and safe.”

Tweeting under the hashtag #GunControlNow, many, however, argued that if U.S. leadership really wanted to keep citizens safe, it would focus on tightening gun regulations.

“My heart breaks for all of our Bay Area neighbors who attended the Gilroy Garlic Festival, wrote Democratic California Representative Eric Swalwell in a tweet. “We need gun reform and we need it now,” he said.

Others, however, questioned how the shooting could have happened in a state that already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

While California already had tight gun laws in place, this year, a number of new restrictions have also gone into effect, including one measure requiring additional background checks ahead of ammunition purchases and another barring people under the age of 21 from purchasing firearms.

“If it was a gun-free zone, how did they have a gun?” one social media user questioned. “The law says no guns…”

Others took a stronger tack, asserting that Sunday’s shooting was a sign that gun control legislation doesn’t work. [Read More]
