Politicians Attend Gun Buy-Back Event

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Rep. Lois Capps and California State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson were among the politicians attending a gun buy-back event in Santa Barbara Saturday.

The event at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara attracted a large crowd.

Jackson and Capps both said they were pushing for gun control legislation in the wake of the Isla Vista murders.

Six students were killed last month, three by guns bought by a troubled 22-year-old.
