NRA Reacts to California Lieutenant Governor’s Proposed New Gun Laws: ‘State Will Be Next Australia’
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new ballot initiative Thursday that would tighten restrictions on ammunition purchases and gun ownership should voters turn out in support of the proposed legislation.
According to the Associated Press, Newsom’s proposal comes in response to national levels of gun violence “and three recent San Francisco Bay Area killings in which the shooters allegedly used stolen guns to commit the crimes.” The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence has sponsored the initiative.
Newsom’s initiative proposes five new restrictions to gun and ammunition ownership.
