Courage Campaign on the San Bernardino Terrorist Attack, Gov. Brown’s veto of SB 374, and California’s Gun Laws


Statement from Eddie Kurtz, Executive Director of the California-based Courage Campaign on the San Bernardino terrorist attack and California’s gun laws:


“Gov. Brown is correct that deeply irresponsible gun laws in other states make it more difficult to protect Californians, but the guns used in the San Bernardino attack were purchased legally in California. When Gov. Brown had the chance to sign into law bills preventing the sale of such semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines, he made an unconscionable and short sighted decision to veto SB 374 and other LIFE Act bills in 2013. While guns used in the San Bernardino attack appear to have been purchased prior to 2013, Gov. Brown failed to do everything in his power to prevent mass shootings in California.


Gov Brown needs to stop making excuses and immediately announce his support for the full policies of the LIFE Act, including a ban on semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines and background checks for ammunition.”
