California lawmakers face Supreme Court limits as they weigh response to Lunar New Year shooting

Monterey Park MayorCalls for legislative action following the mass shooting at a dance hall outside Los Angeles were tempered Monday by a hard reality: The legal landscape for gun laws has never looked so bleak.

A Supreme Court decision in June voided New York’s concealed carry law while also encouraging challenges to restrictions elsewhere — including California’s ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

That’s put Democrats who favor gun regulations on defense in a state that has been at the forefront on the issue for decades, and has the seventh-lowest rate of deaths from firearms.

“California is going to have a tough time in the coming years maintaining its current gun laws, much less enacting and defending new ones,” said Adam Winkler, a UCLA law professor specializing in gun policy.
