Governor's Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 2888 without my signature.

This bill would authorize an employer, coworker, employee of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended in the last six months, to file a petition for a gun violence restraining order against an individual.

All of the persons named in this bill can seek a gun violence restraining order today under existing law by simply working through law enforcement or the immediate family of the concerning individual. I think law enforcement professionals and those closest to a family member are best situated to make these especially consequential decisions.
