Gun rights activists in California aren't happy about stricter gun legislation signed into law last week and are protesting to prove their point.
California Gov. Jerry Brown signed six gun control measures into law on Friday. They include a broader ban on assault weapons and background checks for people buying ammunition.
California's Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said it was "a historic day" when the package passed Thursday. He told the media, "I don’t know how much more blood needs to be spilled in our schools, in our community centers, in public spaces, until the members of Congress act and we can do this nationwide."
