Sen. Bob Hertzberg statement on SCOTUS revoking New York gun-carry law

June 23, 2022

SACRAMENTO – Senate Majority Leader Emeritus Bob Hertzberg of Van Nuys released the following statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court revoked New York state’s 112-year-old gun-carry law:

“This is totally outrageous and endangers public safety everywhere,” said Sen. Bob Hertzberg, author of Senate Bill 1327, a first-in-the-nation measure that would allow private citizens to sue gun manufacturers to sue people and businesses that provide certain deadly firearms. “The U.S. Supreme Court is invalidating a law that has protected the public for more than 110 years. Given today’s climate, and recent tragedies – and high-profile threats to private citizens and public officials – all of us are now in greater danger.”

Hertzberg’s measure, Senate Bill 1327, is expected to go to Gov. Newsom, for whom Hertzberg is carrying the bill, as soon as next week.
