  2. LA Times: Landmark Calif. Gun Law Passed in 2016 Rarely UsedRead the original story w/Photo

The law, inspired by the 2014 Isla Vista shooting where Elliott Rogers stabbed three people to death in his apartment before committing a series of drive-by shootings that killed six and injured 14 others before he killed himself, allows a person concerned about the mental health of an individual to request a gun violence restraining order from a judge.
