Los Angeles police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a vehicle near his Pacific Palisades home, where 1,200 handguns and a large amount of ammunition were found.
A federal appeals court agreed Thursday to reconsider its decision to strike down a California law that requires applicants for a concealed-weapons permit to show “good cause” beyond self-defense.
About 56,000 Californians have a concealed-weapons permit in a state of 38 million residents.
California lawmakers promised Tuesday to move cautiously as they consider tighter restrictions on handguns, assault rifles and ammunition purchases.
Lawmakers threw their support behind a statewide effort to require records of purchases of shotguns, rifles and other “long guns” be preserved like handgun purchase records.
