Statement on SB 798

LAPD Chief Beck and the Senator

“The bill is being held in committee while I work to secure the necessary votes to move it to the Assembly Floor. The safety of our law enforcement officers and the public depends on this advancing. This does not inhibit recreational BB gun enthusiasts. It will keep copycat handguns and military style assault weapons off our streets. It is a small price to pay if we spare even one life lost needlessly.”
