Don't believe me? The People's Democratic Republic of California have some very strict gun control laws. And a man took a California-illegal gun--a so-called "assault rifle," of which every type is illegal in California--to an ex-girlfriend's house, and started shooting up her family.
Two of her family are dead: the ex-girlfriend and her brother. Her mother and father were critically wounded. The gunman was shot by a police officer with an AR-15 when he aimed his "AR-47" at the officer.
(First of all, I didn't know there was such a thing as an "AR-47." Second, what I saw in the picture was an AK-47, with a California-legal thumb hole stock, and an illegal 30 round magazine. The editors really need to proofread more carefully. And maybe know what they're talking about so they don't make such embarrassing mistakes.)
The two that are dead might not be were the gun control laws--which are only affect those who obey the laws in the first place--so stringent.
