Two bills that form a crucial part of the Lifesaving Intelligent Firearms Enforcement Act are now before Governor Brown. They are:
SB 374: strengthens and broadens the law on assault weapons.
SB 755: helps keep guns out of the hands of people who’ve shown dangerous or risky conduct related to firearms, ammunition or substance abuse.
