Full List of Gun Control Laws Vetoed and Signed Into Law in California Yesterday
The bills that California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law and vetoed yesterday represent a mixed bag for gun owners.
Fortunately, the worst of the bills, which would have effectively banned semi-auto magazine fed rifles, was vetoed and cited as being too broad.
On the other side of the fence, the governor signed a law banning lead ammunition for hunting as well as a bill that banned magazine repair kits.
Here is a full list of the bills signed and vetoed by the governor yesterday. Provided by the NRA-ILA.
