On January 14, the Los Angeles Times observed that California pursues more gun control than other states thanks to Democrat rule.
This observation was contained in an column written to express disappoint that President Obama did not spend more time pushing gun control in the State of the Union (SOTU) address.

The Times countered that things would be different in California–that things are different–because Democrat rule has birthed an endless gun control push.
According to the Times, “Oh, well. California is moving ahead on guns with a November ballot initiative and legislation in the Capitol.” And they quoted Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo, who said, “California is different.
