California Gov. Jerry Brown took a swipe Saturday at the gun laws of neighboring states, saying looser restrictions in Arizona and Nevada created a “gigantic back door” for terrorists to enter California.
“California has some of the toughest gun control laws of any state. And Nevada and Arizona are wide open, so that’s a gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk,” Mr. Brown told the Sacramento Bee.
He made his comments in Le Bourget, France, where he recently arrived for international climate talks, several days after two shooters killed 14 people and injured 21 in San Bernardino in an attack that the FBI is investigating as an “act of terrorism.”
