LA Times: ‘Ghost guns’ let bad guys ignore gun control laws. It’s time to get rid of them

August 22, 2019

Another gun proposal that Brown vetoed has been resurrected in the Legislature. The bill, SB 55, would ban gun ownership for 10 years after three drunk driving convictions. It also would apply to anyone guilty of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), the bill’s author, says studies have shown that drunk drivers are five times more likely to misuse firearms than sober motorists.

“We need to take these firearms away from dangerous people,” she says.
