SACRAMENTO – The California Senate approved a set of 11 new gun control laws Thursday in response to the December terrorist massacre in San Bernardino.
The bills go next to the Assembly, where gun control legislation has usually had a harder time, but Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon has said he will work to push them through. If they pass the Assembly, Gov. Jerry Brown must sign them into law. In the past, Brown has vetoed some gun control laws he felt were too restrictive.
California already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country.
