California Leaders Pledge New Law To Address Gun Ruling

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California’s governor and top law enforcement official say they’re working with legislative leaders to keep dangerous people from carrying concealed weapons in public. They plan legislation next week after a U.S. Supreme Court decision Thursday invalidated a key part of the state’s current law. Attorney General Rob Bonta says the high court’s ruling still leaves states with the right to limit concealed carry permits to those who may safely possess firearms. Sam Paredes, executive director of Gun Owners of California, says he expects a flood of gun owners to apply for concealed carry permits. He says they will dare authorities to go against the Supreme Court’s decision.
