Key Facts

  • In December, Newsom called on state legislators to craft a bill enabling Californians to sue gun manufacturers and distributors — a measure patterned after a Texas law upheld by the U.S.
  • “If Texas can use a law to ban a woman’s right to choose and to put her health at risk, we will use that same law to save lives and improve the health and safety of the people in the state of California,” Newsom said at the time.
  • Last month, a deadly shooting in Sacramento brought the issue of gun control closer to home for Newsom after six were killed and a dozen injured just blocks from the state’s Capitol.
  • “The scourge of gun violence continues to be a crisis in our country, and we must resolve to bring an end to this carnage,” Newsom said on April 3 following the Sacramento shooting.
