Yesterday, the public safety committees of the Senate and Assembly pushed multiple politically motivated anti-gun bills.
Anti-gun advocates are using the recent tragedies in efforts to restrict the Second Amendment and self-defense in California. The resulting bills are misguided and do nothing to address crime. Rather, they are designed only to restrict the rights of lawful and responsible gun owners.
Unfortunately, both the Senate and Assembly public safety committees passed the wrongheaded anti-gun legislation. The bills now will be considered by the Senate and Assembly appropriations committees.
