SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) " California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday signed a law that will make the state the first to allow employers, co-workers and teachers to seek gun violence restraining orders against other people. The bill was vetoed twice by former governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, and goes beyond a measure that he signed allowing only law enforcement officers and immediate family members to ask judges to temporarily take away peoples' guns when they are deemed a danger to themselves or others.

If both Jerry Brown AND the ACLU oppose this, I can't imagine it passing constitutional muster in the federal courts.

Seems reasonable.

But, let's hear why this will end the world as we know it.

Gun nuts, the ball is in your court.

#3, I don't own a gun, but when pretty much anybody can make a claim that could result in an upwards of a five year "temporary" ban, the law goes too far, and I'm betting the federal courts will see it that way, as well.
