After a shooting in California county where concealed handgun permits are banned for general citizens, Ford Motor’s solution is not to have Americans own guns? You can see the link available here.
A man who had just been fired from a Northern California Ford dealership shot and killed two employees and then killed himself Tuesday evening, police and witnesses said. Police called to the Ford Store Morgan Hill found a man shot dead of an apparently self-inflicted wound on the ground outside some service bays.
Santa Clara County, where the shooting occurred, has 108 concealed handgun permits out of an adult population of 1.5 million — that is 0.007% of adults. Compare that to the rest of the country where outside the restrictive states of California and New York about 8.63% of the adult population has a permit. To put it differently, in Santa Clara County that is just 1 out of every 14,286 adults. In the rest of the country, it is 1 out of 11.6 adults. On top of that, the few people who get a concealed handgun permit in Santa Clara are extremely wealthy, politically connected people, not the type of people who go to a Ford dealership.
What if Ford instead pushed to end the ban on general citizens being able to defend themselves in Santa Clara and the rest of California.
