On Tuesday, June 12, 2012, a Law Center co-sponsored bill to require the reporting of lost or stolen firearms in California passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee in a 4-2 vote. SB 1366 (DeSaulnier) is a critical measure to help fight the illegal trafficking of crime guns and prevent gun violence in our communities. The bill is co-sponsored by Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and the California Chapters of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and is supported by the California Police Chiefs Association, the California State Sheriffs’ Association, and mayors and gun violence prevention groups statewide.
