This bill would enable an employer, a coworker, or an employee of a high school or college to request the courts to issue a gun violence restraining order from a person having in his/her custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm or ammunition.
To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning Assembly Bill 2888 without my signature.
All of the persons named in this bill can seek a gun violence restraining order today under existing law by simply working through law enforcement or the immediate family of the concerning individual. I think law enforcement professionals and those closest to a family member are best situated to make these especially consequential decisions.
