UCLA Professor: Gun Laws Will Never Stop A ‘Crazed Madman’

by CBS LA  |  published on June 11, 2013

LOS ANGELES ( — In the wake of the deadly shootings at Santa Monica College, investigators are working to determine how the alleged gunman was able to obtain an assault rifle used in the shooting spree that left five people dead and five others injured.

Police believe 23-year-old John Zawahiri used ammunition magazines loaded with 1,300 rounds in the attacks on and around the campus along Pico Boulevard, which reopened with additional security Monday for students to finish their final exams.

Gun control advocates have raised questions about how a young man who allegedly threatened students and teachers during his time at Santa Monica High School was able to acquire a firearm that has been illegal in the state of California since 1989.

But UCLA Law Professor Adam Winkler told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO the public shouldn’t be so quick to look to Sacramento or Washington for a “knee-jerk” legislative solution.
