New Gun Legislation for California

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California is spending millions to keep guns out the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.

The new gun legislation gives $24 million from the dealers’ record of sale fund, to the State’s Department of Justice, for efforts to confiscate firearms from those prohibited by law from owning them.

The state’s Bureau of Firearms has identified about 20,000 Californians who illegally hold an estimated 40,000 handguns and assault weapons.
