California Sen. Barbara Boxer is retiring next year. It's likely that whoever replaces her will take up her mantle as America's Dumbest Senator, because that's how we in California do it when voting for Democrats.
Today, in a Capitol Hill press conference where Democrats touted their plans for solutions to Islamic jihadi radicals shooting up places, Boxer once again demonstrated why she's held her title as America's Dumbest Senator for so long.
That analysis of California's gun control laws came 24 hours after this happened in San Bernardino, Ariz.—a state with notoriously weak gun laws and a gun carry regime called "constitutional carry."
Wait...more information is coming in.
I'm now informed that San Bernardino is in California. Sen. Boxer's gun control laws apparently were key in limiting the number of innocent victims killed to just 14.
As for Boxer's other claim that gun control has brought down the violent crime rate. There is a correlation, but no causation. The violent crime rate has dropped nationally since the '90s and there's no evidence it's dropped quicker or further in California.
California violent crime rate in 2014: 396 per 100k Virginia's was 196 per 100k. Let's try Virginia-style laws. https://t.co/9bXlKRxgoA

A year from now we'll get stupid from someone else.
