Saugus High School is on lockdown, as is a nearby elementary school.
California has an “assault weapons” ban, universal background checks, firearm registration requirements, a one-handgun-a-month purchase limit, a requirement that would-be buyers secure a safety certificate from the state before purchasing a gun, a 10-day waiting period on gun purchases, and ammunition controls, among other things.
Teachers in California are also prohibited from possessing guns with which to shoot back if under attack.
