California sheriffs oppose Newsom’s gun control initiative Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

The Sacramento Bee
California sheriffs announced recently that they are opposing Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s gun-control measure aimed for the fall ballot, arguing it would not prevent criminals from obtaining guns and ammunition via the black market or theft.
