Under a new law effective New Year’s Day, California cops can now seize guns from law-abiding Americans without charges and without giving any notice.
And police can keep those firearms for 21 days under the law known as AB 1014.
If family members believe a gun-owning individual is a danger to themselves or someone else, police may acquire a temporary “gun violence” restraining order from a judge, KPCC public radio reported.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the law after the 2014 shooting by Elliot Rodger near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Rodger, 22, killed six people and injured 14.
