State Sen. Anthony Portantino, a member of this all Democratic group, said he plans to bring back legislation that limits the purchase of rifles or shotguns to one per month. It was vetoed by former Gov. Jerry Brown last year.
“We are going to send a strong message to the current and future gun owners,” Portantino said. “California may be a western state but it's no longer the wild west.”
Gun rights advocates say the measure is an infringement on Second Amendment rights and does nothing to prevent violence.
