The FBI published a report on the number of “Active Shooter Incidents” in 2021 and found that California had six incidents, which was the most of any state.
According to the Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety, California is number one in regard to gun law strength. The organization ranked each state by examining gun laws across five categories: Mental health checks, background checks, permits and licensing requirements, child access prevention laws, and open carry bans.
According to the FBI, there were 61 incidents of active shooters across the country in 2021, with 12 incidents meeting the definition of mass killings.
California led the nation with six “active shooter incidents.”
California has universal background checks, an assault weapons ban, a high capacity magazine ban, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, a red flag law, gun registration requirements, and a ban on carrying a gun.
Additionally, ammunition purchases are only allowed if made through a state-approved vendor. This helps to ensure appropriate accountability of inventory, as well as the safety of our employees and the public.
