    Tell CA Legislators: Help prevent another mass shooting in California

    California may have the strongest gun laws in the nation, but the recent shooting rampage in Isla Vista reminds us that we must do even more to strengthen our gun safety laws.

    We have an opportunity to address the specific instances that led to the Isla Vista tragedy -- specifically by passing 2 pieces of legislation that would make sure people who may be a threat to themselves and others do not have immediate access to firearms.

    The first is a gun violence restraining order (AB 1014) that would allow those closest to a troubled individual -- including friends, family, and intimate partners -- to act when there are warning signs that a person is at risk for violence. The second is an initiative by Senate leader Darrell Steinberg that would provide funding to train law enforcement officers to recognize and handle people who may be a threat to themselves and others.

    If these two proposals would have been in place before, the Isla Vista rampage may have been prevented.

    SIGN THE PETITION to tell our state leaders:

    “In the wake of the deadly Isla Vista shootings, we must do more to prevent gun violence in California. Have the courage to support the gun violence restraining order (AB 1014) and Senate leader Darrell Steinberg’s proposal to help prevent people who are at risk for violent behavior from having access to firearms.”
