Governor-elect Gavin Newsom joined Senator Dianne Feinstein and Speaker Nancy Pelosi in condemning the gun culture and Republican leaders’ refusal to pass comprehensive gun control reform for the deadly mass shooting at a Southern California nightclub on Wednesday night, when a former marine killed 12 people before turning his handgun on himself.  

Newsom, who “absolutely and unequivocally” supports the Second Amendment but supported a 2016 initiative in California to require background checks before purchasing ammunition, bars high-capacity magazines, and bans people bringing ammunition into California from other states.
