Quote of the Day: CA Funds Police Gun Grabbers

Senator Mark Leno (courtesy noisyroom.net)

“When it comes to preventing gun violence in California, we are at a distinct advantage because we are the only state in the nation that utilizes a unique system to identify persons who are barred from possessing firearms. However, we have only been able to confiscate a small number of these illegally possessed weapons due to lack of resources. Our reinvestment in this statewide identification program will help eliminate a troubling backlog and growing mountain of illegal weapons, which threatens public safety in our communities and prevents us from enforcing existing firearms laws.” – Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) on SB-140California Gun Control: First Of 30 Post-Sandy Hook Bills Approved By State Legislature [via huffingtonpost.com]
