Attorney General Bonta’s Sponsored Bill to Curtail Concealed Carry Freedoms Moves to Governor’s Desk

Sacramento, CA…California Attorney General Rob Bonta issued the following statement after Senate Bill 2, authored by Senator Anthony Portantino and co-sponsored by Attorney General Bonta and Governor Newsom, was passed by the Assembly and Senate and sent to Governor Newsom for signature:

“Addressing gun violence is critical to protecting public safety,” said Attorney General Rob Bonta. “Thoughts and prayers in response to gun violence will never be enough: We need courageous action by our leaders — here in California and beyond. I sponsored Senate Bill 2 to provide stronger protections for our communities, and am grateful for the leadership demonstrated by our legislature in moving this bill forward. Senate Bill 2 will strengthen our concealed carry permit laws to help ensure that dangerous individuals may not carry guns in public — especially in sensitive places where our children gather — and prevent the horrific tragedies that we have seen far too often. I thank Senator Portantino and our state leaders for getting this bill on the Governor’s desk, and for our joint efforts to enact commonsense constitutional laws that protect Californians.”
