What’s next for CA gun laws after SCOTUS turns down concealed carry case?

California and its gun laws have been making national news in the last week.

First, with the Supreme Court decision not to take on a case that looks into concealed carry reciprocity and our state’s limits on who can carry a gun in public. Then on Thursday a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction to block the disposal of large-capacity ammunition magazines in California. The law was supposed to go into effect this weekend.

How are gun rights advocates and gun control supporters reacting to the news? What’s next for these policies? And what else could be coming down the pipeline in the national and state-wide gun conversation?
