11 Gun Control Bills Passed by Senate

The state senate has passed a raft of gun control measures. The 11 bills include a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines, and a bill to ban the so-called “bullet button” that supporters say was an end-run around California’s assault weapon ban. Some Democrats hope the bills will fend off a proposed ballot initiative they fear could draw more Republicans to vote in the November election. Christopher Martinez reports from Sacramento.
