Gun Violence Restraining Order Law Passes Senate Vote

The State Senate has approved a bill to create a gun violence restraining order, letting a judge remove firearms from persons deemed at risk for committing acts of violence. The measure was inspired by the Isla Vista shooting massacre, where a disturbed young man went on a shooting spree after his family had unsuccessfully tried to get help for him. Republican lawmakers opposed the bill as an infringement of second amendment gun rights. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
