California Gov. Gavin Newsom along with several elected officials, met with the media at Del Mar Fairgrounds on Friday, Feb. 18, 2022, in Del Mar, Calif., where he backed state legislation that would allow for private citizens to enforce the state's ban on assault weapons. A new bill in California would allow private citizens go after gun makers in the same way Texas lets them target abortion providers, though gun advocates immediately promised a court challenge if it becomes law.

Democrats use Sacramento tragedy to push gun control

Democrats in California were hasty in pushing new gun control measures, following the tragic shooting deaths of six in Sacramento. While President Joe Biden has since called for increased gun control, the state with the most gun laws, 107 according to the State Firearm Laws Project at Boston University, is looking to add at least 24 more.
