    This is how stupid Gavin Newsom is. He thinks California laws apply in
    the state of Ohio.

    "The Orange County District Attorney’s Office identified the gunman as
    John Snowling, 59, a former police officer."

    "He had been living in Ohio on a 7-acre property with his dog, according
    to his divorce lawyer, Tristan teGroen. He said there was “no murmur of domestic violence or threats or anything like that from the other

    ORANGE COUNTY — In the wake of last night’s mass shooting in Trabuco
    Canyon that left at least three victims dead and six individuals wounded, Governor Gavin Newsom today issued a statement regarding the incident and
    urged all Californians to use the state’s “red flag” laws. Red flag laws
    allow victims of domestic violence, family members, coworkers, and others
    to seek protective orders to prohibit potentially dangerous individuals
    and abusers from possessing guns.

    “Once again, a siege of bullets has shaken a community and torn families apart,” said Governor Newsom. “California mourns for the victims of last night’s horrific shooting at Cook’s Corner.

    “As we continue to learn more details about this act of violence, there
    are early reports that this horror was related to a domestic dispute.

    “This type of trauma is unfortunately not isolated. Two-thirds of mass
    shooters in America have a history of domestic violence. Victims and
    survivors in California should know they are never alone — we have tools
    and resources to support and protect you. Our state’s red flag laws allow victims, family members, coworkers, and others to work with local law enforcement and the courts to safely remove guns from those who may be a potential threat.

    “We must continue to strengthen, defend, and use these laws. If you see
    red flags, say something — and in doing so, save lives.”

    Earlier this summer, Governor Newsom announced the launch of
    GunSafety.ca.gov, a new website that provides critical information and multilingual, culturally competent materials on how Californians can use
    red flag laws — including Gun Violence Restraining Orders — to help
    protect their loved ones when someone poses a threat to themself or
    others. The website is part of an $11 million statewide campaign, launched
    by the Governor and administered by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, to raise awareness, educate the public, and explain
    the steps required to obtain a Gun Violence Restraining Order.

    In California, Gun Violence Restraining Orders were used to prevent 58 threatened mass shootings between 2016 and 2019 and have shown immense
    promise in reducing the incidence of firearm suicide.

    On Monday, Governor Gavin Newsom filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in defense of a federal law that prohibits individuals under
    domestic violence restraining orders from possessing firearms.
