Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Friday that California’s strict gun-control laws failed to prevent the San Bernardino mass shooting, and that lawmakers need to seek “better answers.”
“This issue goes beyond gun control,” Mr. Hogan told the Baltimore Sun outside a local diner.
“California has the toughest laws in the country. We probably have the second toughest. It hasn’t stopped us. We have more than 315 murders here in Baltimore City, we had a tragedy in California,” Mr. Hogan said. “We’ve got to come up with better answers.”
The FBI is investigating Wednesday’s San Bernardino attack, which left 14 dead and 21 injured, as an “act of terrorism.”
