During This Holiday Season Cal OES Reminds Californians About the State’s Gun Violence Restraining Order Law
December 23, 2022 – SACRAMENTO – While it’s normally the happiest time of the year for many Californians, the holiday season can turn into a tragedy as firearm violence is more likely to occur than any other time of the year.
As California continues to lead the way in protecting children and loved ones from gun violence, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) wants to remind all Californians about the life-saving resources available to them, including the state’s Gun Violence Restraining Order law.
This law allows for the temporary removal of guns and ammunition from individuals who are at risk of harming themselves or others. This law provides loved ones, teachers and school administrators, and employers, the opportunity to intervene and prevent someone in crisis from accessing firearms.
