A series of gun control bills are making their way through the California Legislature and lawmakers have until the end of August to get them in front of Governor Jerry Brown for his approval.

The bills were introduced in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting in February, and include a proposal that would raise the legal age of gun purchase in the state from 18 to 21, and another that would impose a lifetime ban on gun ownership for anyone who’s been found guilty of misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

We debate the bills and their likelihood for approval.
