The website Governing has the basics:
Gov. Jerry Brown signed two bills Tuesday written in response to gun tragedies that shook up Northern California: the Isla Vista shooting rampage by a UC Santa Barbara student and the Sonoma County sheriff’s deputy shooting of a boy with a toy gun.
One new law will allow family and friends of a person who is believed to pose a threat or danger to petition a court to remove the person’s guns. The other law will require toy guns sold in the state to have bright-colored markings so that they are not mistaken for real firearms.

Let’s hope the new laws spur copycat legislatures around the country ASAP.
