(Sacramento, CA) – Assemblymember Marc Levine on Wednesday said he would place a tax on the sale of semiautomatic weapons and use the revenue to support community violence-prevention programs.

Those local efforts would be funded through the existing California Violence Intervention and Prevention Program (CalVIP), which last year awarded more than $8 million in grants to communities hit hard by gun violence.
