SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Some San Diego leaders are holding a rally Wednesday to urge Gov. Jerry Brown to sign a bill that would strengthen California’s gun regulations.

Assembly Bill (AB) 2103, authored by San Diego state Assemblyman Todd Gloria and passed in the state Senate last week, would require concealed carry permit applicants to have at least eight hours of training in firearms safety.

Also, applicants would be required to take a test on a shooting range to prove they can safely handle a firearm.

Currently, California law does not have a minimum training standard.

Brown has until the end of September to sign or veto the bill.
