Newsom supports bill to allow residents to sue gun industry

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday unveiled his plan to challenge the U.S. Supreme Court

and test a Texas law that authorizes citizen-led lawsuits against abortion providers with a California bill 

that would enable residents to sue gun manufacturers and distributors

 Newsom responded to the Supreme Court's decision not to block a Texas law that bans most abortions

 after six weeks and allows private people to sue providers and clinics by saying he would replicate legislation in California to target the gun industry.

He directed the Legislature and Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta to craft a policy that would let Californians sue gun manufacturers
