In California there is no legally recognized right to keep and bear arms. The state constitution contains no such provision, and the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution does not apply to state law.
If the SCOTUS decides favorably in the McDonald case argued just a couple of week ago, then the 2nd Amendment would limit state actions, and possibly change many things in California, but unless and until then, the legislature can pass any law they want, including an outright ban and confiscation of firearms.
Hey, KPBS! When you write an article about legislation, why not include the bill number so that interested citizens can read it for themselves. This is a common failing in news articles that I would like to see corrected.
