Copycat Anti-Gun Measures Pass The CA Senate

posted on May 21, 2016

While California’s gun owners have followed the progression of Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s onerous gun-control ballot measure with trepidation, they could at least count on the possibility of the proposals being defeated at the polls in November. But now that a new set of anti-gun bills bearing a remarkable resemblance to Newsom’s has passed the California Senate, the odds are even higher that punishing anti-Second Amendment laws may be coming to the Golden State.

Citing concerns that Newsom’s bills might fail, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon explained that the goal is to get the bills onto Gov. Brown’s desk as soon as next week in a bid to persuade Newsom to remove his measures from the ballot. As of now, however, Newsom seems resistant to that plan, meaning that these measures may now have two opportunities to become law.
