(Sacramento, CA)
Monday, April 22, 2013
The state Department of Justice has the only system in the nation that confiscates guns from felons, people who are deemed mentally unstable, or who have a warrant or restraining order against them.
 
Lawmakers have sent Governor Brown a bill that would provide the Department $24-million to help clear up a confiscation backlog.
 
An estimated 20,000 Californians own guns illegally.
 
The money would come from the gun "Dealer Record of Sale" account.
 
The account holds fees raised from the sale or transfer of firearms.
 
The bill passed in the Senate on a 37 to 0 vote.
 
If it is signed by the Governor it would take effect immediately.
