Santa Barbara Congresswoman Makes New Call For Gun Control Legislation In Wake Of Isla Vista Rampage

Posted on Thursday, May 29, 2014 2:31pm

The Congresswoman who represents Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties says the Isla Vista rampage is yet another example of why we need more gun control legislation.

Democratic Congresswoman Lois Capps of Santa Barbara spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives this morning, urging Congress to act.

Lawmakers in both the House, and Senate, and on both sides of the aisle politically are calling for action.

But, political analysts say because it’s an election year, it’s more likely that legislation to help deal with those with mental health issues would pass, as opposed to gun control legislation.

Seven died, and 13 were injured in the Isla Vista rampage last week.
