California governor vetoes bill banning semi-automatic rifles

California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would have outlawed future sales of most semi-automatic rifles in the state.

The governor announced signing other gun-related legislation on Friday but rejected the centerpiece bill, which would have imposed the nation’s toughest restrictions on gun ownership.

Brown’s veto message for SB374 said it was too far-reaching. The bill by Democratic Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg would have outlawed future sales of an entire class of weapons that includes most assault rifles.
