In the article, ¨New Findings Continue to Show California’s Gun Safety Laws Work.”(Newsom, Gavin. 2023) I learned that California is one of less states that have strict gun safety. Over the years with better safety the rates have changed. Even though these safety laws are regulated there are still some criminal homicides occurring. With the ban of highly weapons this also can include a change. 

I believe with these stricter and safer regulations these gun deaths can decrease. The ideal of mental health will decrease suicides and school shootings. Same as well as background checks, those who have a bad history should not have possession of these weapons. This helps me think of where gun safety and gun violence stand in California now. How has it changed even though there have been some tragedies? 

As I continue to learn about gun violence I still wonder how others feel as these harmful deaths are usually caused by those who have a history of some sort.
