CA Lawmaker Expects Legislature to Tighten Gun Law "Loopholes"


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Lawmakers are sensing an opportunity to pass stricter gun and ammunition laws in California after New York passed the nation's toughest gun-control legislation and President Barack Obama proposed a sweeping national effort.

Yet the issue may not seem so pressing to Gov. Jerry Brown.

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Wednesday that he expects the Democratic-controlled Legislature to tighten "loopholes" in the state's assault weapons restrictions.

He also says he will support proposals to make it more difficult to rapidly fire dozens of rounds from assault weapons and to require the reporting of ammunition purchases.

Brown's reluctance to engage in the debate over tougher laws can have implications for the wave of gun- and ammunition-control proposals this year, most of them from members of his own party.
