Democratic Governor of California Gavin Newsom signed a gun bill into law on Friday based off of Texas’ abortion ban, which would allow citizens to sue those who violate gun laws in the state.
The bill, SB-1327, states that “[a]ny person, other than an officer or employee of a state or local governmental entity in this state, may bring a civil action against any person” who knowingly violates California gun law banning assault weapons or firearm parts.
A person can also be sued who “[k]nowingly engages in conduct that aids or abets” a violation of the law, “regardless of whether the person knew or should have known that the person aided or abetted would be violating [it],” or “[k]nowingly commits an act with the intent to engage in the conduct described…”
Lawsuits can be brought for at least $10,000 for each weapon or gun part. A licensed gun dealer can also be sued for selling a gun to someone under 21 years old.
