California’s capital city was shaken by two horrific mass murders over the course of months.
In both cases, before the victims were even identified, politicians such as Governor Gavin Newsom and President Joe Biden were catching up on their topic for discussion of gun control. But the facts, once known, told a different story: radical “progressive” politics was the direct cause of both tragedies.
on February 28, a deranged man murdered his three daughters and his guardian during a supervised visit to the Church of Sacramento a few miles from the Capitol. On April 3, a shootout broke out between rival gangs outside a nightclub a few blocks from the Capitol, resulting in 6 dead and 12 injured.
SACRAMENTO RELEASED WEEKS BEFORE THE TRAGED, HAS A BRUTAL PAST
Six hours after the gang chaos, Newsom took part in his vacation in Costa Rica, blaming “the plague of gun violence”. On the same day, President Biden took the opportunity to tout his “comprehensive gun crime reduction strategy” and “call upon Congress to act” by enacting a litany of gun control measures.

A shootout in the church sparked a similar chorus. Within hours, Newsom called it “another senseless act of gun violence in America.”
Other politicians immediately took advantage of this unspoken tragedy to “push through common-sense gun laws to stop such horrific tragedies.” California already has the country’s strictest gun laws.
SUSPECTED MASS PHOTOS IN SACRAMENTO ORDERED TO BE PAID IN THOUSANDS OF COUNTRIES BEFORE PHOTOS
Here’s what we know now. The killer was in the country illegally in the church massacre. Not only that, he was arrested last week for assaulting a police officer – and ICE asked to be notified of his release. But ICE has never been notified because of the “sanctuary” policy that prohibits coordination between law enforcement and immigration authorities.

As for the gang killings, one suspect was a professional criminal with a “violent and long” report. In 2018, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for domestic violence and assault. But thanks to the lenient sentencing laws, he was released earlier this year, despite vehement objections from the district attorney.
The use by Biden and Newsom of these twin massacres as fodder for the gun control demagogy is an attempt to obscure the very clear window they provide in failed immigration and crime policies.

Recent polls show that the vast majority of Americans believe the problem of illegal immigration is on the rise, and for the first time in years most Americans say they are “very worried” about crime.
Republicans must come up with real solutions to these problems. Secure the border, retain title 42, dismantle sanctuary policy, restore real ramifications for criminal behavior – and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners from irresponsible politicians who would use them as scapegoats for their own failures.
