"Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Santa Clara, said he will continue to push for "common sense gun control measures.""While much still remains to be confirmed at this time, one thing is abundantly clear: the gun violence epidemic will continue to rage unless we take concrete action to protect our country. It was our community today, but it will be someone else's tomorrow," Khanna said in an emailed statement."

One thing is abundantly clear. California's already strict gun control laws (background checks, red flag laws, "assault weapons" bans, magazine restrictions, etc.) did not prevent this incident from taking place. Expect state officials to predictably double down and demand even more firearms restrictions/bans/turn in programs for the law abiding (not "common sense") while making excuses for their failed "progressive" policies and those who practice violence ("gun violence epidemic").
