Boxer Hopes Santa Monica Shooting Will Provide 'Wind at our Backs' on Gun Control

'Every single time something like this happens, I think this does give us wind at our back'

Boxer: Santa Monica Shooting ‘Gives Us Wind at Our Back’ for Gun Control (National Review)

Senator Barbara Boxer celebrated the rekindling of talks about gun-control legislation after a shooting at Santa Monica College last Friday.

“Every single time something like this happens, I think this does give us wind at our back,” Boxer said on MSNBC over the weekend. On Friday, a gunman opened fire on the school’s campus in the state of California, killing six people, including the gunman.

She said she does “worry about” the failure of the legislation after the Sandy Hook shooting last year, but knows that gun-control supporters “never give up.”
