Several Gun-Control Measures Signed Into Law in California
California Gov. Jerry Brown waited until literally the last hour on Sunday to act on firearms-related legislation sent to his desk this session.
Several anti-gun and anti-industry bills were signed into law, including long-gun registration.
Sadly, the steady erosion of the Second Amendment in California continues. Gov. Brown has now proven that he no more respects freedom and the individual right protected by the Second Amendment than his predecessor.
These bills will increase costs for the taxpayer and the state’s retailers, most of whom are small mom-n-pop businesses. It will cost the state jobs and tax revenue, all the while doing absolutely nothing to reduce crime.
View a wrap-up of the bills that the governor signed and vetoed.
