Senator Espero Talks About Gun Buy-Back Program
Senator Will Espero, who introduced a measure to curb gun violence through the creation of a gun buy-back program, discusses the bill, Senate Bill 69, Relating to Firearms. According to the bill, a gun buy-back program decreases the availability of guns in the community by providing cash incentives to gun possessors to forfeit their firearms. In December, a gun buy-back program in Los Angeles netted 2,037 firearms in a single day. The measure was heard yesterday by the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental and Military Affairs, which Espero serves as chair.
