(Sacramento) - Assemblymembers Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) and Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) have announced legislation to help prevent mass killings like the tragic Isla Vista rampage near UC Santa Barbara that claimed the lives of six students. The proposed legislation would create a gun violence restraining order, establishing a system where concerned family members, intimate partners or friends can notify law enforcement of someone who is demonstrating a propensity to commit violence toward themselves or others. “The tragic incident in my hometown of Isla Vista is not a result of gun laws failing. Rather, it is a horrific example of how our mental health laws and gun control laws are not working together,” said Assemblyman Williams. Assemblyman Williams talked about the legislation on the CNN program Legal View With Ashleigh Banfield. Watch the interview in this Assembly Assets video.
