Senator Yee Praises President Obama on Commitment to Reasonable Gun Control

December 19, 2012

SACRAMENTO – Today, Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo), who is authoring legislation to strengthen California’s assault weapon ban, praised President Barack Obama’s commitment to federal gun control law:

“I commend the President for his commitment to passing common sense federal gun control legislation. In California, we are prepared to support his efforts and will also strengthen our state laws to help ensure our communities never again are forced to deal with such a horrific assault on children. While we cannot stop every act of senseless gun violence, surely we can close loopholes and modernize our laws to limit such tragedies in the future.”
