California Guns

Sales associate Elsworth Andrews arranges guns on display at Burbank Ammo & Guns in Burbank. State lawmakers for the second year rejected a new tax on gun sales, Wednesday. The bill fell seven votes short of the supermajority it needed in the state Senate in an initial vote.

SACRAMENTO — Gun-control advocates could have had another victory in their very successful California legislative session that ended, Thursday, if not for a risky move supported by Gov. Gavin Newsom that backfired on a bill to impose new limits on carrying concealed weapons after the US Supreme Court struck down old rules.

The Legislature passed more than a dozen significant bills on gun limits during the session. But the concealed weapons measure failed, Thursday, after Newsom, Attorney General Rob Bonta and the bill’s other Democratic backers pushed for a two-thirds supermajority required so the new rules could take effect, this month, instead of opting for the simple majority that would have made the new law effective, in January.
