California Has More Than 100 Gun Laws. Why Don't They Stop More Mass Shootings?
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California bans guns for domestic violence offenders. It bans them for people deemed a danger to others or themselves. There is a ban on large-capacity magazines and a ban on noise-muffling silencers. Semi-automatic guns of the sort colloquially known as “assault weapons”...
"...Jesse Gabriel, a Los Angeles-area Democrat in the state Assembly who co-chairs a legislative working group on gun violence prevention, said the group has already moved up its February meeting to discuss new legislation. Proposals include a state excise tax on ammunition and guns, a measure to add three years to an existing ban on gun ownership for people who have had domestic violence orders filed against them, a proposal to make the possession of an unregistered “ghost” gun a felony and a bill to let people suffering a mental health crisis put their own names on a “do not sell” list.
Rob Bonta, the California attorney general, said the concealed carry revision is essential, as are tighter gun regulations. “Is there something new that hasn’t been done?” Bonta said. “That’s what we’re asking ourselves.”
I'm sure they'll think of something...
