Gov. Newsom Signs Gun Control Legislation Modeled After Texas Abortion Law


Gov. Gavin Newsom signed gun control legislation Friday that allows private citizens to sue those who provide or manufacture illegal firearms in California, including assault weapons and so-called ghost guns.

The law, which will take effect in January, was modeled after Texas’ abortion law that allows people to sue anyone who aids or abets in an abortion. Like in the Texas bill, people will receive at least $10,000 in damages for each weapon, plus attorneys fees. Senate Bill 1327, introduced by state Sens. Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys, and Anthony Portantino, D-La Cañada Flintridge, was designed to mimic Texas’ measure so that the Supreme Court — which upheld Texas’ law last year — would also have to strike down Texas’ legislation if it were to overturn the California law.

Newsom said at a news conference Friday at Santa Monica College that he expects the law to be litigated in the Supreme Court, which has been sympathetic to gun rights in recent rulings.
