SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California passed a new gun control law on August 28 that allows people to request gun restraining orders against those who show signs of violence. 

The bill passed on Tuesday is an extension of a California law passed in 2016, which allows immediate family members and law enforcement agents to request that guns be removed from someone that they deem dangerous. 

The new proposal adds school employees and coworkers to the list of people who can request these orders. 

The new part of the bill was inspired in wake of a school shooting in Parkland Florida.
