Gov. Brown signs new gun removal bill

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Law enforcement officers in California will soon be able to take away guns from people if police, or family members, believe the gun owner is a threat.

Governor brown signed the bill into law Tuesday.

The new law makes California the first state to let family members ask a judge for restraining order that would prohibit gun possession.

Supporters say it will help stop gun violence and prevent attacks.

The National Rifle Association is calling an anti-gun bill.

The bill was proposed after a deadly rampage near the University of California Santa Barbara last May.

The new measure will take effect in 2016.
