As California welcomes a new governor, Democrat Gavin Newsom, into office, the State Senate has reintroduced a bill that would restrict residents to purchasing only one gun per month.
California Senate Bill 61 would “ban the sale or transfer of more than one firearm within a 30-day period,” CNBC reported this week. Democratic Sen. Anthony Portantino reintroduced the bill, which had been vetoed in the past by former Gov. Jerry Brown.
The new governor intends to support the same gun control reform that is embraced by most Democrats, which was evident in his inaugural address where he made critical remarks about the Trump Administration and the gun lobby.
“Make no mistake, there are powerful forces arrayed against us. Not just politicians in Washington — but drug companies that gouge Californians with sky-high prices. A gun lobby that’s willing to sacrifice the lives of our children to line their pockets,” the new governor said, CNBC reported.
