GVROs are a critical tool to allow family members to work with law enforcement and the courts to prevent gun violence and shootings in California’s communities. Law enforcement officials across the state have spoken extensively on the use of GVROs to prevent potential tragedies. In one example, the San Diego City Attorney’s Office successfully executed a GVRO on a car dealership employee, preventing him from returning to work with a semi-automatic rifle with significant killing capability.
Effective execution of GVROs is a proven preventative tactic that saves lives and training for all officers must be urgently prioritized. This bill ensures that all of our law enforcement officials have the training needed to file GVROs when they feel public safety is at risk.
