"It's another reminder that as long as our country is awash in guns, shootings can happen anywhere, anytime," State Sen. Scott Wiener said in a statement. "California has the strongest gun safety laws in the nation, and we're continuing to strengthen them. But we need strong action from Congress to truly improve the safety of our community."
