California AB 144: Who voted for this?

I was talking to a friend about the new firearms laws in California, and specifically about AB 144 (the banning of Open Carry) when he asked who would vote for this? Well I’m pretty sure most people know Anthony Portantino authored it, but he didn’t pass it by himself.

Good question! Now, while I know where to find this information, many of California’s gun owners probably do not. Many do not even know that this information is available.

So I’ll remedy that.

Here is the timeline of the passage of AB 144, including who voted for it, and who voted against it (just as important):
