“This is another reminder that as long as our country is awash with guns, shootings can happen anywhere, anytime,” State Sen. Scott Wiener said in a statement. “California has the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, and we continue to strengthen them. But we need strong action from Congress to truly improve our community’s safety.”
