Hannah-Beth Jackson will introduce a bill to ban certain assault weapons.

State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, will introduce a bill in the coming weeks to address gun violence in California. The bill would ban certain assault shotguns and ensure that shotguns with revolving cylinders continue to be illegal under the state’s current assault weapons ban.

“As gun technology evolves, our laws need to keep pace with them,” Jackson said. “Shotguns with a rifled barrel and revolving cylinder are relatively new, and can fire a large number of cartridges in a short period of time. The danger of these guns far outweighs any recreational use they may have.”

The new bill would ban “rifled bore” shotguns with revolving cylinders such as the Circuit Judge .410/.45.

This bill and others like it around the country are in response to the Newtown tragedy where 26 students and staff were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
