Assembly Bill 1014



October 1, 2014 (Sacramento) – Governor Jerry Brown has signed two bills to regulate firearms, but vetoed a third.

Family members can now seek a temporarily restraining order in court to block gun use and purchase, short-term, by a person showing signs of mental instability.  Assembly Bill 1014 was prompted by the deadly shootings in Isla Vista near U.C. Santa Barbara, where family members had warned law enforcement that they feared the suspect was planning violence.
