Two state lawmakers have introduced a bill intended to lessen the chance of another mass killing, prompted by last month's rampage in Isla Vista.

Known as the Gun Violence Restraining Order, AB 1014, co-authored by Assemblymembers Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) and Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley), would allow any person to petition a court to remove someone’s right to possess a  firearm if it is believed the person in question is a danger to himself or others.
