San Bernardino


The rifles used by the shooters were 5.56 mm NATO caliber, a DPMS Model A15 and a Smith & Wesson M&P15. These are AR-15 pattern rifles.

This demonstrates how effective the California “assault rifle” and “high-capacity” magazine bans are in the real world (which probably shouldn’t be confused with California.)

UPDATE—Steven Hayward at Powerline has some thoughts on better gun control.

    • Yup. A woman interviewed via phone on CBS said, “We looked and we saw three men dressed in all black, military vests on, they were holding assault rifles.” I believe her last name was Abdelmageed.

  1. Yeah, my home state has been WONDERFUL in the area of gun control laws. If you take wonderful to mean keeping them from those of us who are lawabiding but not keeping those who would wreak havoc from getting them. Same story, different day. Saying that a scary looking gun is an assault rifle is ludicrous. Always has been, always will. Do pretty farkles on a motorcycle make it an “assault motorcycle?” I don’t think so.

  2. Living in Western MD, my father always said they needed a fence around Washington D.C. and Baltimore, that way we would have a national and state zoo.

  3. Every time Obama and the Democrats scream about more gun control, I purchase an additional firearm and/or ammo. I purchased an additional 250 rounds of 5.56mm today and plan to purchase the new Sig MPX 9mm Carbine this weekend.

    California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, yet a radicalized military aged male can purchase semi-auto AR 15’s and operate an “IED factory” in the heart of the US west coast. I would love to know exactly what LAW(s) the Dem’s champion that would have prevented this specific attack? There is no punishment strong enough to persuade those willing to die for their cause.

  4. Thank goodness I live in a “shall issue” state. It took less than 3 weeks to get my permit. And Utah was actually quicker.
