Gun Laws in California Spark Debate

A new change to gun laws is causing a lot of debate in one state.

FOX’s Eben Brown has the details in this “Bullet Points”:

Long firearms with so-called bullet buttons are selling like hotcakes in California, as a new law is set to take effect in January that expands the definition of the term ‘assault rifles’.

State assemblyman Rob Bonta is one of the law’s big backers. He says it will curb gun violence:

(Bonta) ”California has led in the past. I’m proud it’s leading again. We’re a model for the rest of the nation.”

But that’s not the viewpoint held by shooting enthusiasts, who say the law is targeting not just legal AR-15’s, but themselves. Christopher Lapinksi is the manager at Las Stand Readiness and Tactical in Sacramento. His company is thinking of moving out of California:

(Lapinski) ”Which is a terrible thing because we put money into this state.”

And down in San Francisco, the Chabot Gun Club has gone out of business after a half-century saying it can’t afford new fees it’s being assessed. Environment regulators say spent rounds from the range are pollutants.

And those are your Bullet Points.
