Bill to Close Ghost Gun Loophole Heads to Governor Brown.
(Sacramento) – This afternoon, Assembly Bill (AB) 1673 by Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson (D-Carson) overcame its last major hurdle towards becoming law when it passed the state legislature. AB 1673 passed with bipartisan support in the Assembly with a vote of 46-33 and 23-14 vote in the Senate. The bill will now head to the Governor for his signature.
“We have an opportunity to really curb gun violence here in California and close a deadly loophole that allows for certain manufactured parts of a gun to be untraceable and undetectable” said Assemblymember Gipson. “We must address this window of opportunity that allowed for people to use these unsearialized guns in the Santa Monica, Stockton, and Walnut Creek shootings of 2013 through 2015.
