“Once you’re in you’re in. There’s no backing down. I felt like I was finally a part of something.” - Go behind the story of the documentary “Nuestra Familia, Our Family,” a film about gun violence in Salinas, California.
The Los Angeles police commission is considering new regulations on BB or pellet guns. If approved, it could drastically change what they look like.
Imagine BB guns looking similar to water pistols. Under the new proposal that L.A. Police Chief Charlie Beck is pushing, he says it could make a big difference in preventing officer-involved shootings.
Beck wants to require BB or pellet guns to be colored- such as white, red, green, blue, or even pink. Under the proposal, the guns could also be made with translucent material.
Studies of the health effects of Taser International’s stun guns are 75 percent more likely to deem the weapons safe when researchers have ties to the company, a new report concludes.
