Mayor Jean Quan said part of the solution is out of the city’s hands.
  “So many of these guns were not sold in Oakland," Quan said, "not probably even sold in the state of California. We’ve got to stop these guns from coming into our cities."   Quan is one of many local officials who’ve communicated with Vice president Joe Biden, as he plans to recommend changes to gun laws that can be made by both Congress and the President.
I wish I had a Mexican Peso for every time one of the sarcastic gun-rights fanatics said about CA crime, "Oh, how could that be, California has such strict gun control laws?"
They know the answer as well as we do. Oakland's mayor mentioned it here. California shares a border with some of the most gun friendly states. Strict federal regulations are needed.
