Sacramento – Back in February, Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin (D – Thousand Oaks) introduced Assembly Bill 645, a bill to reduce firearm related suicides.

“There has been a startling increase in firearm suicides throughout California and the nation,” said Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin. “While, we will never know what saves the lives of those in crisis, it is our goal that connecting people with the help they need will reduce the amount of gun-related suicide deaths. On this National Suicide Prevention Day, I urge Governor Newsom to sign this bill to save lives.”
